Hi.I'm Andy,the magic man Segal.I am here at Willow Billiards in Hoboko,New Jersey doing some trick shots and pooling instructions.So if you are ready,let's get started.This shot is called the Rosebud Cluster.We have the 8 ball trapped between six stripe balls.The idea is to make the 8 ball.Now because this is symmetrical, the 8 ball can be made in any of these four pockets.In order to figure out which pocket your gonna make it in,what you do is figure out which ball the 8 ball is gonna carom off out.For example here,the gap between the 8 and the 9 is lined up just off the side pocket here.So the 9 ball is the key ball to make it in there.So in order to make the 8 ball in this pocket,I am gonna shoot directly into the 8-9 combination,obviously hitting the 11 ball first.If I wanted to make the ball in another pocket I will pick a different line. For now we are just gonna make the 8 ball on this side.Just like that.Okay now,just like I said, the 8 ball can be made in any pocket of these 4.So this time we are gonna make the 8 ball in this pocket.Now the key ball here is the 13.The gap between the 8 and the 13 is lined up just outside the corner pocket.So because the key ball is the 13,I am gonna shoot into the 8-13,hitting the 9 ball fist.
