High-speed pool and billiards video clips

An interesting link from Billiards @ColoStateThese videos provide a lot of useful information!Quoted…————The video clips (below) were filmed with a special high-speed camera. The super slow-motion playback helps you visualize effects that cannot be seen with the naked eye or with a standard video camera. Refer to the book for a description and illustration of the principles involved.NOTE: If you enjoy the super-slow-motion high-speed video clips, you might want to consider purchasing the HSV DVD.NOTE: If the video clips fail to play properly, or if you want to change the media player or its attributes, try using the alternative interface instead. If this doesn’t work, see the website instructions.Chapter 2 – FundamentalsHSV 2.1 – Miscue due to off-center hit with no chalkChapter 3 – Executing Basic ShotsHSV 3.1 – Stop-shot showing loss of
