Question Potting 8 0r 9 ball off break??

How the hell do you do this

I pull the power right back as far as it goes and the 9 ball doesn't even move off its spot

Seriously getting on my nerves now There must be a method to get all the balls moving as I guess this is how you would also get the pot 2 and 3 balls in 1 shot achievements aswell

Once I worked out the right area of the pack to aim for I managed to sink the 8 ball in about 15-20 attempts. The 9 ball seemed a little easier which I sunk after about 7-8 shots aiming for a similar spot. I have managed to sink it a further 3 times since in about 25 games.
Below are the set-ups I used but there is no guarantee this will work for you in the same number of shots as me as lot of it is down to luck but its the best distribution of the balls I could manage and regularly results in a few balls being potted.

Click on the images to see them in full scale.

My 8-Ball Set up



Aim for the blue stripe (2nd ball on left) just missing the yellow at the front so the cue ball runs into the cushion on the left. This sometimes returns into the pack breaking up any remaining balls. Seems very random at times even when try replicate shooting from the same position.



Below is about the average distribution I get after the break. You can see 8 ball at the top end of the table.





My 9 Ball Set up




This is very similar but shooting from closer to the cushion. In 9 Ball you need to hit the 1 ball first (solid yellow at front of pack) so this time aim for about the same position as the method above but ensure you strike the 1 ball first and also that the cue ball is going towards the back cushion.




Note: Hitting with full power is essential. So if your having trouble with the power bar use the tip of your finger and pull down from where I have marked in the photo below. If it does not go all the way to the bottom bring it back to the top, remove your finger and try again. It is very annoying but the little extra bit of power makes all the difference.





Hope this helps.
