How to Do the "Stroke Jump" Advanced Pool Trick Shot

Learn how to make the "Stroke Jump" shot from pool trick shot champion Andy Segal in this Howcast video.


"Hi, I'm Andy 'The Magic Man' Segal. I'm here at Willow Billiards in Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if you're ready, let's get started.

Alright, this shot here we have a bunch of different props on the table. We have two racks, two cups and a cue stick down at the other end of the table. The way this shot works, you have this shot, this rack here against this rail, basically expanding the pocket. Then we have this rack up here on these blue cups. It's kind of like a window for the cue ball to jump through. What I'm going to do is I'm going to shoot into the cue ball all. All five of these balls are going to go into this pocket with the help of this rack. The cue ball is going to jump up in the air, go through this rack, it's going to travel down table right to about here when it's going to spin backwards, hit this cushion, go down there, hit that cue stick which is going to help it make the nine ball. Now this is a difficult shot so don't expect to make this on the first try. What I'm going to do, I'm going to shoot the cue ball this way with a bottom left English and the force of these balls is going to propel the cue ball up through the rack and the bottom left English is going to kick in right around here, pull it back to the rail and make the nine. Kind of like that. Now remember, scratches don't count in trick shots. "
