Photo Finish Pool Trick Shot Overview

This shot is in the Twenty-five Easy Ones chapter of on page 44. The hardest part of this shot is the table. Be prepared to make adjustments. On my table I have to place the balls a little bit differently than the way they are diagramed in the book.

    Make sure you practice the placement, I like to place the cue ball and the 2 balls frozen with it closer to the rail than the diagrams in .

    In this shot I aim the cue ball(c) directly towards the center of ball 2 or else slightly to the right side of ball 2. Balls 1,2 and 3 go into the pockets marked 1,2 and 3 respectively.
