1.0 INTRODUCTION

Like many other pool players, I am trying to reach my ultimate performance potential. I believe that this aptitude comes in two forms, knowledge and execution. Unfortunately, unless one is blessed with a natural ability, consistent execution requires years of diligent practice to develop the variety of strokes necessary to excel in pool and billiards. I am not a natural to the game. To make up for my late start and limited time to practice, I have tried to compensate for any shortcomings and inconsistencies in my stroke by developing an advanced knowledge of the game. I am guessing that many people have followed the same path and immersed themselves in the wealth of information available on the web, in books, in videos, and through interaction with more experienced players. During my quest for knowledge, I came across a seemingly impassable obstacle, multi-rail kicking (and banking) systems. The systems I found through research either required the addition of a repeatable, consistent amount of English to the cue ball, did not have nearly enough explanation to meet all the situations that I encountered, or were limited to specific situations or circumstances. I was not satisfied with these choices. Applying a measured amount of English requires a consistent stroke (even when under extreme pressure), and as I mentioned before, my stroke lacks that consistency. In addition, I have a drive to understand why and how systems work, not just the procedure. That way, if the game situation does not match the reference examples, I can make an intelligent, informed decision on what adaptation can provide the results I need.

While searching for a multi-rail kicking system suited for my game and abilities, I developed a kicking (and banking) system based on a tangible and understandable geometric theorem, similar triangles. Surprisingly, I benefited from the system more than I had hoped. The system not only has helped me with multi-rail kicks, but also with single rail kicks, caroms, banking, safeties and cue ball
