This is another of those surprising and varied pool techniques. Basically, I am going to add the motion of my whole body to the forward momentum of my pool cue rather than hold my torso motionless as in the classic pool stroke.

The photo was taken near the conclusion of my final backswing, as I just begin to add body motion to this stroke.
