Snooker Practise Drills by JC

In any sports that a person wants to excel in, I would say all discipline must do no less than practise, practise and more practise. The same goes for snooker.

I’m sure some of you have heard many advises from your friends or acquaintances on practice drills in order to improve your game. Same goes for me but today a friend of mine sent me a very interesting email that we at OriginalOmin.com would love to share with you. Here goes:-

TV line-up, practice potting a red with a blue, pink or black.

Pink & Black ball potting. This is to help with any breaks around the pink & black.

9 reds. Ideal practice on pink & black for cluttered break building.

Red ball potting practice from the center of the table into all 4 corner pockets.

Red & color ball potting practice from the center of the table into all 4 corner pockets.

Getting out of a Snooker by playing all around the table into the pack of reds.

This drill is to learn potting off the center spot into the center pocket from all angles.

This drill is to get you to overcome those awkward angle pots. Place cue ball on center spot of Baulk Line and start potting!

This is one of the most important practice drills. Clearing the whole table starting with the Yellow, it gives you the confidence to know you will complete a break and leave no balls left to play.


2 blacks, practice potting 2 reds & 2 blacks, very good for break building around the black spot.

I hope this have helped put some variety into your solo training and make it more interesting. Do note that there are a lot more drills outside that  I myself have practice so do not solely take other drills as wrong practice drills.

I hope you will also have fun with these drills and if I ever get a chance to meet you guys, I’ll be very happy if you told me these drills has helped you improve your game.

Good luck and my best wishes to you!

P/S A big shoutout to Chris Chan for sending me email!
