Billiard Problem-No. 3 By JOHN ROBERTS.. I Our next problem presents a grouping of I the balls, which is of' frequent occurrence, I and is very likely, indeed, to con- front the ama- teul, who has made more than a. little progress with the top of the table game. Such a player often the balls much too nearly straight in hrne for his liking, and it is not the. easiest thing in the world to decide what is the beat stroke to play when thD bal-Is are 'Ove-rEd," or nearly so. The problem beiore us is a typical leave of this description. The I cue-bail i.s 24in. from the right side cushion I and 4in. from the top cushion, the red ball touches the top cushion, and is one inch to the ri.^h.t of the billiard spo,t. The object white is 25in. from the left side cu?ion and ?2?,i.n. from the top c-u?iic?n. What is the b-est stroke to play? I Solution of Problem No. 2. I To solve this problem correctly it is neces- sary to remember the very useful fact that, under botli tne Billiard Control Club rules and those of the Billiard Associa- tion, it is per- missible for a player to send his ball cm to a cushion inside baulk when play- ing at an objoct baJll outside baulk. So a stroke from the left side cushion which first strikes the red ball deals with the posi- tion. The stroke is not at all difn- cult, but care must be taken n'ot to. hit the white first, or a 'foul will be made. Play without a,ny tide on the cue ball at the angle shown in the diagram, a.nd employ moderate strength, when a eco-re is certain to result. JOHN ROBERTS.
