I wanted to say the following to a Japanese friend (most of it I think I got, but he still didn't understand fully):


1. At what angle do you hold/tilt the cue stick when breaking the balls in a game of tamatsuki?

2. In 3-ball online whether you hold the cue stick at a 0 or 15 degree angle, the movement of the balls is about the same.

3. You can even hold the stick at a 25 degree angle and still make contact with at least one of the balls.


Thanks!

OK--these are my best attempts.

2. Netto de no [3 ball] wo suru toki 0 do made 15 do no aida nara dono kakudo kara utte mo tama no ugoki wa hotondo onaji da to omoimasu.

3. 25 (kaku) do demo sukunakutomo 1 tama wo uteru to omoimasu.


They still need to be confirmed though. ;)

I'm not really sure but it looks like you pretty much got it. Here are the changes I'd make to what you wrote:

1. Biriyaudo wo suru toki hajime ni tama wo chirashitara dono kakudo de uchimasuka?

2. Netto de no [3 ball] wo suru toki 0 do kara 15 do madeno aida nara dono kakudo kara utte mo tama no ugoki wa hotondo onaji da to omoimasu.

3. 25 (kaku) do demo sukunakutemo 1 tama wo uteru to omoimasu.

These are just guesses. Best to check with a billiards-knowledgeable NS in this case.

Thanks a lot, @mdchachi ! :) Yes, the last three were just oversights and I will check back with the intended recipient again to make sure he understood as well as you. 😅

And finally from my tutor some more literal variations on this same theme....


1)。 ビリヤードの始めに玉を散らす時 どの様な角度で 棒を握りま すか?

2)。インターネットの ビリヤードでは、棒の角度が 0度から 15度の間は、玉の動 きは ほとんど同じです。

3)。たとえ棒を25度の角度に 握っても 少なくても 1玉に ぶつけることが 出来ます。
