Apparently, according to some guy with a pool cue , this is an Earl speciality. This guy tried this about 20 times and only ever got close once.


"All you have to do is aim for the first diamond after the pocket - no E- and you cant fail to make it ".

He did.

Can anybody make this shot on a regular basis?

Whats the chance of potting the ball on the first go?

Here is a similar shot that can be made surprisingly easy. You kick in the spot shot you can not even see

If you move everything one diamond you can make another shot like the one you show. It is a good looking shot when you make it.

I didn't know it before but I tried it. I set it up and sunk it 3 times in a row using just follow. Then I just missed it about 20 times in a row.

Too bad. I thought we came up with someting here because it's such a tough situation to play a decent safety out of.

Back to the drawing board!
