Racking Secrets ll, by Joe Tucker

Racking Secrets II starts off with 3 newly defined Breaking Secrets that cover effective breaking styles that are explained in detail. This section is meant to help you find your own consistent & powerful break. We’re all different and you’ll find what works best for you.
I struggled for nearly 20 yrs with an inconsistent break before finally figuring this out. Now I am sharing my findings with you.
In Section 2 we cover the 10 Ball rack in detail by learning what spaces matter the most, and racking orders. Plus how the energy and cue ball direction affect the spread and how to adjust.
Section 3 has some very important 9 Ball updates on the rack along with some suggested breaking options to add to your game. (They’re cheating again but we have the answer, AGAIN.)
The DVD has no fluff at all. It’s go, go, go, all the way through, and I promise you’ll get way more than your money’s worth.

Pool Wars by Jay Helfert

On the road to Hell and back with the
World’s greatest money players.


Lifetime pool player/promoter/enthusiast, Jay “Toupee Jay” Helfert — and I recite his nickname with affection — has taken us on a fun ride through what I call the Golden Years of pool and pool hustling. Jay’s misspent youth turns out to be our good fortune, as he has chronicled many of the events that have heretofore have been known only to the participants. Pool has never received much air or tabloid space, so many of our exploits have stayed alive only through word of mouth, or the efforts of a few lonely billiard writers, myself included of course.
So climb aboard and see what it was like to navigate throughout the shady shark-infested war zones of Chicago’s Bensingers, New York’s 711, LA’s Big Mama’s, Hollywood’s Ye Billiard Den, and so on, with the best players/hustlers of that generation.
