"Hi. I'm Andy ""The Magic Man"" Segal. I'm here at Willow Billiard in Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if you're ready, let's get started. This is a pretty shot. It's called the snake shot. We have the cue ball frozen to the rail, right by the pocket point, trapped by the one ball, which is straight out from it. The fourteen ball in the middle, eight ball hanging. The idea is to make the eight ball without touching either, either of the two balls. Now, because the cue ball's frozen to the one ball, the only way to come out is forwards or backwards, but if you shoot into the rail, it'll actually compress the rail just enough so the cue ball can sneak out. So we'll go this way, this way, and then I'm going to hit it with a little bit of top spin, so as it comes around, the top spin's going to bend it around the fourteen to make the eight. The reason why it's called the snake shot is because first the cue ball goes this way, then it goes this way, and then it goes this way. So there's three different directions, so it kind of looks like a snake. Of course, scratches don't count in trick shots. "
