How to line up a shot when using side spin?

In this video 3 times World 8 Ball Pool Champion, Gareth Potts, explains how to line up a shot correctly when using side spin, taking into the account the bend in the line the ball takes due to the spin imparted.

We filmed 6 new videos with Gareth Potts prior to our latest Pool School event which we held at our Bristol Showroom in August 3013. Each of these videos were in response to questions posed by eith our Facebook followers, our our YouTube viewers who had questions from previous videos we had shot.

There are lots of other Gareth Potts videos to help you learn the nuances of pool, available on Home Leisure Direct. There are also excerpts from tournament matches, where you can see Gareth putting what he has taught into action. Please visit our Gareth Potts channel on Home Leisure Direct TV:
