Richard gives me some pictures of russian' billiard.

Wikipedia says that the rules are like the American rules where you have to put the balls in the pockets of the table.
Once the first shoot to break the triangle is made with a red ball (not photographed), we take one of the balls numbered as a ball game.
It is used to hit one of the other numbered balls that must go into a pocket.

As soon as the player has returned 8 balls, the game is won.

The russian' balls are bigger than carom balls:

laurent guenet billaird technic

On the website of Laurent GUENET, I find a series of questions/answers usefull to do this
 

QUESTIONS

B – For a natural shot how do you adjust the speed of the player ball ?
C – For a one cushion natural shot what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?
D – With a direct backspin dropshot, opened angle, what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?
E – With a backspin, acute angle, what is the use of the quantity of ball ?
F – With a backspin one cushion what is the use of english ?
G –With a backspin, acute angle, what is the parameter influencing the speed of the ball 1 ?
H –On a natural follow through what is the parameter steering the ball 1 ?
I - On a one cushion follow through what is the parameter influencing the speed of the ball 1 ?
J – On a direct right angle what is the use of the quantity of ball ?
K – On the compensation point, one for two, what is the use of english ?
L – On the compensation point, one for two, what is the use of the height of attack ?
M – On the compensation point, one for two, when the ball 2 is on the good way, the ball 1 get a good way too buy does not come as far as the ball 3, how do you manage to correct the shot ?
N – With a piqué, what is the parameter influencing the distance covered by the ball 2 ?
O – With a piqué, what parameters are influencing the backspin of the ball 1 ?
P – On the backspin, acute angle, what parameters are influencing the distance of the backspin of ball 1 ?

ANSWERS


A - half ball (+ or -) and heading shot in the ball

B - with the quantity of ball
by taking less than half a ball the ball is rolling faster and further and is less deflected on the side
by taking more than half a ball  the ball is rolling slower and not as far and is less deflected on the side

C - the english
The amount of english could be 1 to 2,5 to obtain a deflection of 1 to 2,5 spaces between two spots (on the side of the table), this for a one cushion shot in the width.

D - the height of the attack
A drop shot is obtained by taking full ball, it is the height of the attack which is steering the ball 1

E - it manages the direction of ball 1

F - it manages the direction of ball 1

G - the height of the attack

H - the quantity

I - the height of the attack

J - to the speed of ball 1

K -  to the speed of ball 1

L - to the direction of ball 1

M - you need to vary the speed of ball 1, therefore you must modify the english and the height of the attack to adjust the direction of ball 1

N - the tilt of the cue
More vertical, less is the distance running by ball 2
Less vertical, more distance runned by ball 2

O - the height of the attack and the strength of the shot
Lowering the attack and/or higher stength is resulting in more backspin for ball 1  

P - the height of the attack and the strength
Lowering the attack and/or higher stength is resulting in more backspin for ball 1

In this animation you could see :
  • that we hit the object ball twice as big as the aimed quantity
  • where is the hiting point compared with the aim
To change animation's parameters :
  • aiming : click, move and click the little gray circle
  • distance between balls 1 and 2 : move the cursor key
The red ball will be propeled according to the axis connecting its center to the center of ball 1 before the hit.

The more the balls are close, the more the touched quantity of the red ball will be important, independently of the aim.


On those two sketches, with a distance of 2 centimeters between balls, we see that aiming 1/2 or 3/4 of ball 2 don't change the positions of the 2 balls after the hit.
  • Aiming a quantity of 1/2 ball
visée 3/4 bille proche

  • Aiming a quantity of 3/4 ball
visée 1/2 bille proche

To make easier the shot it is better to reduce the aimed quantity of ball 2
