I was watching a couple of real good player match up in 9-ball this afternoon. This one particular fellow used his follow shot to sink some early 9 balls. Never seen anyone really use it before, but let me try to set it up.

First time, the table looked somewhat like this:

START(
%Em1O7%Gn9K4%Ho5L5%Iq9G6%Pj7S6%Uq3I4%Vj8S6%Wn6M5%X m2O6%Yr6K1
%Zo5L5%[l2E9%\n8K6%]r8D2%^r0G4
)END

He shot the five directly into the seven and eight, and all three balls scattered. He used some follow on the cue ball, and pocketed the 9.

Next time he had ball in hand with this layout.

START(
%Dg6W0%E]0D7%FW7Y3%GV6Z1%H`2T2%ID2D5%Pl5Y5%Ua0O4%V`9S2%WE2E 2
%Xl3Y5%YV8U4%Z`1T3%_a8S9%`c6T8%ag5V9
)END

He put the cue directly behinde the four, shot it directly at the nine, knowing that the eight was there. Both the eight and four scattered and the cueball went across the table with follow to make an early nine.

Needless to say, he has a great stroke. I've never really thought about using follow like that, but the next time I'll have to practice that shot!

I think this shot (or one close to it) was shown in the October 2004 issue of Billiards Digest from a book that's 100 years old. It makes you wonder how many shots are actually new.
