Masse  Advanced

This sneaky shot was invented by Sebastian Giumelli, but I took it all the way to the 2010 UTS Championship title. The cue ball is frozen between two object balls on the short rail. The object balls have coins balanced on top of them to prove they don't move. Seemingly impossible, the cue ball squeezes out from between the two balls, then masse's back to pocket the 3 ball in the corner pocket. Learn how!

Bank/Kick  Advanced

This is a devious little shot I rode all the way to win the 2010 Ultimate Trick Shot Tour Championships. The cue ball and 3 ball are frozen to the rail and to each other, with a blocker ball in the way of the corner pocket. Stroking through the cue ball sends both the 3 ball and cue ball down table, drifting just pass the blocker. The 3 ball hits the short rail and rebounds back where the cue ball is there to double kiss it into the corner pocket. Learn how!

Prop/Novelty  Advanced

Here's a devious shot I invented that helped me with the 2010 UTS Championships. The cue ball hits the tray sending the 3 ball up the rail. The cue ball, meanwhile, goes three rails and meets the 3 ball by the side pocket, knocking it in, if you're lucky! Learn how!

Trick/Fancy  Intermediate

I learned this shot from Robert Byrne's Treasury of Trick Shots and parlayed it into a few points at the 2009 Ultimate Trick Shot Tour Championships. The cue ball splits the 1-2 cluster by the side, hits the rack pocketing the 3 and 4 balls, goes off the side rail and comes back for the 5 ball where it all started. Amazing! Learn how!

Prop/Novelty  Intermediate

I invented this shot for the 2009 Ultimate Trick Shot Championships. I wanted to invent a shot where the tray was used for more than just a stationary extra rail. The cue ball hits the tray first, opening up a path between the tray and the side rail. The cue ball hits two rails, gets guided up the edge of the rack, goes off the side rail and the tray again, pocketing the hanging ball in the side pocket. Learn how!

Follow  Advanced

This shot demonstrates how much spin can be retained on the cue ball after a double kiss. The cue ball double kisses off the 1 ball, which is frozen to the rail. The 1 ball banks off the side rail and into the corner (I got lucky; the cue butt should help it most of the time). The cue ball double kisses back off the side rail, bends around the blocking big 8 ball, and pockets the 3 ball hanging in the corner. Learn how!

Stroke  Advanced

Here's another fouette (or whip draw) shot I invented. The 1 ball rockets into the side pocket, narrowly missing the 3 ball. The cue ball slices around the giant 8 ball, spins off two rails, then slides up the rack and pocketing the 3 ball in the same side pocket.  Learn how!

Masse  Advanced

Stefano Pelinga invented this terrific masse shot. Pocket the 1 ball in the far corner, then the cue ball spins back, bouncing off the long rail and going around the blocking ball, and pocketing the 3 ball hanging in the near corner pocket. This take is as good as I've ever hit it. Enjoy! Learn how!

Stroke  Advanced

This is a great shot invented by Gabi 'Mr. Perfect' Visoiu. Unfortunately, we both missed this at the 2011 World Cup of Trick Shots. It's a jump-fouette shot. The 1 ball gets cut in the corner while the cue ball jumps over the row of blocking balls. Then it curves around the rack, hits the long rail and short rail with just enough spin to hold it up to come back and hit the rack, sinking the 3 ball. Learn how!

Stroke  Advanced

Here's a great variation on the standard 2mm draw shot invented by Abram 'Too Tall' Diaz. When he posted it, he claimed he was the only one in the world who could do it. I'm a little late to the game as a couple others have already proved him wrong, but it's still a great shot. Pocket the 1 ball, slip the cue ball around the blocker and down the machine gun to pocket the 3 in the near corner. Learn how!
