    This video provides no useful information. All you need to do is watch the results of the break to see that he cannot break at all.

    Breaking off the rail does not in fact offer more power, it causes you to hit down on the ball, causing it to skip down the table. The cue ball contacts the one ball while slightly in the air resulting in the cue ball launching upwards after contact, therefore providing the illusion of a hard break.

    Breaking is much more about cue speed and cue ball control than anything else. Where you break from in nine ball should be determined by where the cue ball is most likely to end up, felt conditions, and whether or not you’ve been making any balls from certain locations. Breaking on the rail offers you a bit more power along with less cue ball control whereas breaking off the rail offers a bit more control, with less stability in your bridge usually resulting in less power.
