Here are a bunch of interesting shots on the 9 ball. If you follow trick shots you will see some old friends with new clothes.
I've thought of two ways to do that shot: a "special" 8 ball like Dr. Dave has or put the 8 against a support like a peppercorn or the head of a pin stuck into the cloth. The other two balls need to be in dimples probably.Very cool, Bob - thanks!
But didn't he cheat gravity a little at 2:23?
I first saw that shot played by Jack White, one of the most active exhibition players in the US, about 1964. It is on page 77 of Robert Byrne's "Treasury of Trickshots in Pool and Billiards". That book is one of about half a dozen that everyone who is interested in trick/skill shots should have in their library.I especially liked shot on 1:02
