CROSS-CANNONS.

CROSS-CANNONS. By RISO LEVI (Copyright). -L. anagram 642 illustrates a position wnion is typical of similar position which often occur at the top of the table. The cannon off the cushion presents no difficulty whatever to any moderate player, but many very fair players often make the mistake of playing the stroke very slowly indeed in order not to separate the object balls more than is absolutely necessary. When the object balls are only a few inhces apart and the same kind of stroke as the cannon shown on the diagram, has to be played, it is the correct game to play with very gentle strength, for in this way Eeveral consecutive cannons of the same nature can often be made. Lach one of these cannons, however, leaves the objeot balls a little farther apart than they were previous to the stroke having been played, and only a very limited number of such cannons ca.n be made, even by good amateurs, before the slow stroke must be abandoned if good position is to be retained. lA ?nn.on Off the top cushion, 4ril)bhng t'he "?t0P CI,3ll"' dr?b b!u'gthe Vte w tte^vicinni^ty oof f ?"?'

W ith the balls situated as on Diagram 642, Ins.. therefore, of play- i.Tl,g the cannon quite gently enough pace should be used to send the red right up to the pocket. In this way a perfect leave may be obtained from the stroke, and the break continued. The canqon would be of exactly the same nature, as regards driving the red to the corner pocket, were the balls placed in a similair position near the side cushion at an equal distance from the pocket, and Diagram 642 is, therefore, given hero as another example of the short cross-cannons. The position occurs more frequently at the top of the table than at the side of the table. Mr. Levi's articles appear every Saturday in the "Evening Expreee." No. 1 of this series appeared on October 3, 1903.
