    thanks< now i can scratch better

  20. TheANYMOOSE says:

    Why would you want the cue ball to go in the pocket?

  21. greentealovin says:

    @jason08233 You Hit The Cue Ball WAY Too Low, To The Point That The Tip Of The Cue Is, Or Almost Is Touching The Table. When You Do That, It Jumps. What You Did Was A Jump Shot.

    TIP: To Do Better Back-spin Shots, Make Your Bridge A Little Higher, And Hit At The Bottom Of The Cue Ball At A Slight Angle. This Makes More Backspin, And There’s A Lower Chance Of A Jump-Shot Happening.

  22. coopm12 says:


    Actually, what you described above is not a jump shot, it is what’s called a ‘carry’, and is not a legal shot in tournament play. A true jump shot is only legal (in tournament play) when you strike down on the cue ball from above, driving the ball down into the table and causing it to basically rebound upward and hopefully towards the object ball. If you perform this shot the way you describe, you lose your shot and your opponent gets ball in hand.

    @arminask haha

  25. greentealovin says:

    @coopm12 Ah, You’re Right! Sorry, I Mis-typed What I Was Trying To Say. Thanks For Correcting Me! So Yes, To Prevent For A Carry From Happening, Refer To My Previous Comment 😀
