About The Shot

All balls to the corner pocket! It's tough enough getting the 1, 2, and 3 to go into the same corner pocket, but the cue ball also draws back and catches the 5 ball as well.

Discipline: Trick & Fancy

Difficulty: Advanced

Make This Shot

Start by setting up the 3 ball as the 3rd ball out from the side pocket, on the short centerline of the table (Figure 1).

The 3-1 combination should be aligned straight into the corner pocket (Figure 2). If there's too much throw on your balls, twist this to the right side of the pocket. The 2 ball is frozen to both the 3 and the 1 ball.

As you can see in Figure 1, I place the cue ball one ball width out from the diamond. I aim >1/2 ball hit on the 3 ball with 1/2 tip draw and 1/2 tip right. Adjust the draw to get back to the ball hanging in the corner. The right helps throw the 2 ball in. Only make slight adjustments to adjust for the bank angle (moving the cluster left or right). It doesn't take much to get it to go.

Tim's Tidbit

This shot's probably been around for a while, but I remember first seeing it when Tony Robles showed it to me in 2006.
