This drill aims to help us finishing the match when the oponent misses in 9- or 10-ball, leaving 5, 6 or more balls on the table. The objective is to clear the table in a single inning.
We always start with ball in hand.
In a first instance we take balls 10, 9, 8 and 7 and we scatter them randomly, taking care that they do not lie next to each other or in positions which are impossible to pocket.
If we succeed in finishing two such tables without missing, we add another ball, number 6 for example.
Conversely, if we miss we detract a ball (number 7), and we shall need to finish two tables without missing in order to put it back on the table.
When the drill is over we shall note down how many balls we have been able to pocket in a row (without missing any shot). For example, if you have been able to make it to the five ball, you will write down "6", which is the number of balls you have been able to pocket without missing (10, 9, 8, 7, 6 and 5).
