Hi, I'm Andy "The Magic Man" Segal. I'm Here at Willow in Hoboken New Jersey doing some trick shots and pooling instructions, so if you're ready let's get started. Alright now for Carom shots to work yo have to understand position place so look at that other video. What's gonna happen is I'm gonna shoot the twelve ball on the side and I want the Q ball to travel down the rail to make the ten. Well if you remember the Ghost ball technique, We have a ball for ten ball here. The tangent line is right down the path that I want the Q ball to take, So I'm gonna shoot the Q ball as if I'm gonna do a stop shot and that should make the Q ball to travel directly down that line and pocket the ten. Now you'll not always gonna be so lucky as to have a direct shot like that, so for example if you have a shot like this, the Ghost ball is here, the tangent line brings you into here. Ok? So in order to alter that tangent line you have to use back spin, pull the Q ball back from the tangent line, pocketing the one and making the fifteen ball in the corner pocket, so I'm gonna use backspin here. You always have to make sure that you know which tangent line you're looking at and whether you wanna push it forward, bring it back or keep it right along in that line.
