One of the hardest things for new pool players to grasp and utilize is putting English on the cue ball.  The whole idea of English makes sense, but in practice it can be difficult to understand and recall, especially in the middle of a tight match.  That's why we put together this handy dandy little chart to show you the different places to hit the cue ball and how they will change the spin, trajectory and overall behavior of the cue ball.  Keep in mind that this chart does not take speed and power into consideration, as the amount of English you put on the ball will change depending on how hard you hit the ball.
