Kinister tapes, especially vol.14, 20 and 34.

Don't waste your money on "Kicking for Cash".  Basically he tells you to hit
the cue ball "exactly 1-9/16 of an inch off the right side of the last
diamond."  If you do make sure you go to your local Ace Hardware and buy a
ruler before you go to the pool hall.

"exactly 1-9/16 of an inch off the right side of the last diamond"

The last diamond?  Is that like the Last Mohican?

Pray tell, what is the "last diamond"?

It is the one diamond remaining after after all the other diamonds have been
voted off.

JT,

Don't waste your time or money on Vol.14 - I bought it, watched it once, and
it's gathering dust in my collection.  IMO, Bert should have stopped at
Vol.12.  Here's the point of Vol.14 - bend your front arm, and lead with
your body when you break.  This technique was covered in February's
Billiards Digest by Mike Sigel.  The best part of Bert's tape is when he
brings in his star pupil that "apparently" is the hardest breaker in the US.
The guy breaks hard, and loses the cue ball off the table about 80% of the
time - this is a guy that I'd play for cash any day of the week.  My opinion
(whatever that counts for) is save your money, and practice breaking with
control so that you can pocket a ball and leave the cue ball in the centre
of the table - something that Bert doesn't cover in "The Big Bang".
