Introduction To The Diamond System 3 Cushion Billiards
The diamond system is the main reference system of the 3 cushion billiards. Since the pool table has a rectangular shape, the cue ball’s movements are not always the same.
On the cue ball second cushion third cushion and third cushion fourth cushion lines;
a) 1/1 it moves
This is very important and all billiard players must learn them.
There are steepness coefficients to keep the system formula constant and not to give erroneous results to the arrival points. It is valid only for 4 cushion and above. There are no orthogonalness coefficients in 3-cushion shots.
Now let’s move on to the figures that make up the diamond system.
Diamond System Figures
Starting Points: The points lined on the long cushion are the 45 shot. Each diamond is 5 points. The points listed on the short cushion are the 50 shots. Each diamond is 10 points. After the second diamond, 1/2 diamond is 10 points.
