How To Make Common Billiards Shots 3

In this shot, both the cue ball and the object ball are frozen to the rail.  If you were to shoot the cue ball with no english, you would either follow the object ball into the end pocket or you would hit one of the points on the side pocket and miss the object ball completely.


 Things to remember with this shot

  • Use low, inside engilsh (either at 4:30 or 7:30 o'clock depending on which rail you are on)
  • Aim the shot just off of the rail (do not hit into the rail), the english will pull the cue ball back to the rail to sink the object ball
  • You will have to experiment with the speed of this shot, if your stroke is too hard you will scratch
