Definition of Cue Action
Cue Action is a billiards term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.
Cue action is a term which refers to the overall timing, selection, and posture of a player with regards to their shots.
Players assess their opponent's cue action as a way of determining how they may play a particular shot.
For example, one may ascertain that an opponent who is a fast and natural player will be a more assertive and aggressive player. An opponent who exhibits a less naturally gifted style may be slower and more conservative.
Cue action is primarily a UK term, but can also apply snooker as well. For example, a widely accepted thought is that more skilled snooker players tend to get lower on the table while shooting, with their chins resting on the cue with a straight back leg and an elbow that hinges in line with the shot. They are also thought to have a straight follow through after the cue ball has been struck. All of these descriptions together make up a player's cue action.
There is no known way to hide one's cue action.
