About The Shot

The balls are set up as in the Just Showing Off with the addition of a bridge lying across the table. The five object balls find their way to their usual pockets while the cue ball jumps over the bridge before going around the table.

Make This Shot

The basic setup is the same as the Just Showing Off shot with a couple of adjustments. Here, I've moved the 1 and 7 balls back a bit, one balls width away from the point of the side pocket. Also, I've moved the 4 and 2 balls back to the middle of the pocket. You might have to play around with 5 ball to see how much it throws. You can also see the angle I make with the bridge across the table. (Figure 1)

I place the cue ball one balls width out from the rail, one diamond away from the side pocket. I aim for about half or just less than half of the 7 ball, practically at 9 o'clock and 20-25 degrees of elevation (it doesn't take a whole lot). Hit it firm so you can jump over the bridge, but not so hard that the cue ball flies off the table. I think it's easier to adjust your spin if the cue ball runs long or short. (Figure 2)
