About The Shot

Two cue balls are inside a rack by the side pocket. One is jumped to the right and the other is jumped to the left and each makes a ball hanging in the corner. But both jumps are done at the same time, one-handed.

Make This Shot

No secrets to the setup here. Two balls in the rack, straight out from the side pocket and a ball hanging in each corner pocket. If you want to make this easier, you can start by jumping over shafts or rows of chalk.

You'll have to figure most of this out for yourself, but I like to hold the cues just behind the balance point so they naturally point down. I like to have my left hand shoot the cue ball that's farther out. Get the cues close to the balls; you shouldn't actually need too much power, a quick little jab should suffice. Try them one at a time first. If you consistently miss one of them when doing them together, explicitly focus on that one. Otherwise, focus in between the two balls and keep each cue in your periphary vision.
