Hi I'm Max Eberle, and I'm talking to you from Hard Times Billiards in Bellflower, California, and today I am going to show you how to break the nine ball. The equipment you need is the one through nine and the cue ball. You need your cue, your break cue if you have one, your chalk, and you need a rag. So, if you have the cue ball in the center of the table here, you can break and then you would aim directly at the one ball. Most professionals like to break from the side because you get more action. You get a really nice spread on the balls and I'm going to aim directly into the center of the one ball. The balls are going to spread out better. You have a better chance of making this corner ball here or the one ball in the side. You're not going to aim right on to the one unless you are shooting right from the center. So, I am going to aim with the center ball and the cue ball, and ideally the cue ball is going to be somewhere in the middle of the table, giving me the best possible chance to have a good shot on the lowest numbered ball. Okay so I'm going to line up. I'm going to pretend I'm shooting that one ball straight that way, right on the line that centers, that's my stroking line. So, with the solid bridge, aiming right down that stroking line, right around the center of the cue ball, I'm going to put as much power as I can. I'm Max Eberle, and that's how to break a nine ball.
