How to Make Straight in Shots & Why You Keep Missing Them

Do you dread shooting that long straight in 8-ball or 9-ball? In this video I discuss why a lot of players miss straight in shots so much and how to make them. I also cover why cut shots seem to be easier than these long straight in monstrosities.

If you want to support my channel, simply comment on and like the video. Also, I am shooting for 100,000 subs by the end of this year, so if you are new here and enjoy these kinds of videos, consider subscribing.


Also, a quick shout out to where I did some of my research. I knew what the problem was when it came to hitting with left or right, but they gave a great explanation of exactly what vertical axis perception is.

Straight Pool Runout Inside the Mind of a Professional | Thorsten Hohmann

We asked Kamui Brand partner player Thorsten Hohmann (World 9-Ball, World 14.1 Champion) to play through a rack of 15 balls while describing in detail his thought process and decision making throughout the game. There are a lot of things to keep in mind when playing high level straight pool including how you're going to break the next rack of balls after this one. Unlike 9-ball or 8-ball, straight pool (a.k.a. 14.1) allows you to hit any ball in any order, and when you get down to just 1 ball, you rack the other 14 back in the triangle and keep going. Thorsten has made a terrifying 408 without missing, so I figured he was a good person to get a straight pool lesson from. Filmed at Society Billiards in New York City. Special thanks to Thorsten for the lesson.

MATCH/REMATCH: Mika IMMONEN vs. Oliver ORTMANN - 2013 ACCU-STATS STRAIGHT POOL INVITATIONAL

Mika The Iceman IMMONEN vs. Oliver The Machine ORTMANN in TWO 75-point matches of straight pool! The MATCH and the REMATCH.

From the double round-robin format 2013 ACCU-STATS STRAIGHT POOL INVITATIONAL comes new type of video - the MATCH and REMATCH - two matches on one video. We could have just released them individually, but, to be honest, they really DO belong together, as one! With 75-point matches, it was critical to get ahead quickly - especially when each match carried a $1000 payout. But, there was an added bonus for this invitational - if the winner was on a run of 50 or more, he could continue to try for the 100-ball run bonus of an extra $1000!! Exciting for the fans, exciting for the players!
