The Concise Book of Position Play
Three Cushion Billiards! -  This book offers billiard players some great learning opportunities in an easily understood format with an accompanying DVD to demonstrate the concepts even further.  This 270 page book is logical in sequence with great approaches to both common and complicated shots.  It is spiral-bound, so you can take it to the table and lay it flat as you work with it.  It is intended for the intermediate and advanced player and is a ‘must have” for learning how to control the position of all three balls.  All of the various systems covered in the book are clearly demonstrated on the 80 minute long DVD.  Some of the concepts I cover are:  The Foundation-basic fundamentals, The Theory of Position Play, Big Ball Position Shots, Short Angle Position Shots, Four and Five Cushion Position Shots, Across The Table Position Shots, Shot Making versus Position Play and Simple, Effective Number Systems....

THE ROAD SCHOLARS
from
Diana Hoppe
mr3cushion_home_page001027.gif
In 1963 I was introduced to Bensinger’s Billiards, at Clark and Diversey in Chicago by my father, Merhl Smith who was a fine billiard player in his own right. Bensingers was the quintessential billiard room of the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, all the way from brass spittoons, to the black porters and servers that would take your coat, get your personal cue, and bring the ivory balls to your table with a pitcher of ice water, what service!....more
I offer lessons based on half day or full days in Florida. I am available for appointment in either Orlando, FL at Corner Pocket Billiards or Ultimate Billiards in Ft Pierce, FL. Both locations are equipped with top level equipment and are well run establishments....more
YES, THE GREAT game's name is indeed three-cushion billiards, but that doesn't mean that three-cushion shots are always the right shots. The objec tive of these position lessons is to simplify things, but there are many, many ways to accomplish that which don't correspond to merely reducing the number of cushions you use. I con stantly see average players choose such shots, across the width of the table, in stead of correct four- or five-rail shots along the length. And often enough, the longer shots will afford greater op portunities to position object balls in high-percentage scoring zones (in the corners being the most favorable, with your second choice being along the side rails)....more

My latest endeavor to raise the awareness and importance of position play in the “Modern day game of 3 Cushion Billiards is a 120 minute DVD entitled, “The Secrets EXPOSED Consecutive Scoring for a Higher Average”. This DVD is a compilation of video starting positions melding with narrative diagrams to instruct the player how to take advantage of some of the most common positions on the table.

 The DVD will take the viewer thru a progression of, “starting positions”, which increase in their difficulty, to allow the player to accomplish a realistic opportunity for “Consecutive Scoring”. Each “starting position” will enable the player to make runs of 3 or more, the“Secrets” Smith exposes, are how to recognize the correct shots to start the possibility for “Consecutive Scoring”.

The 12 chapters starting with, Big Ball Positions, Small Ball Positions, Short Angle Positions, Thin Ball, 4 & 5 Cushion, Reverse English, etc., contain over 50 “starting positions” to reveal 150 shots or more to “Consecutive Scoring for a Higher Average”.

The game of 3 Cushion Billiards is a game of memory, the player has to first recognize, and then, remember every aspect that goes into executing a 3 cushion billiard. This video will give the viewer that opportunity, thru visual and audio instruction of the correct “starting positions”. With this valuable information the player will realize a notable increase in their overall average, which Bill Smith’s work is committed to.
