How to Make the "Pinball" Pool Trick Shot

Learn how to make the "Pinball" 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 at Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if you're ready, let's get started. Alright, so this shot here reminds me of a game of pinball - the cue ball is going to be bouncing around, making all these balls in all different pockets. We have the one and the two ball lined up by the side - the one ball is kinda on the edge there and the two ball is lined up not straight into the corner, but out just a little bit. We have the three ball here, right at the edge, four ball's hanging, five ball's hanging, and the rack is pointed just about maybe two or three inches off the six. What I'm going to do is, I'm going to shoot into the one. The one ball is going to go in the side, two in the corner, cue ball is gonna go one, two rails, hit the stick, making the three, making the four, come down the stick, hit this rack, making the five, probably hit this rail, knock the six off the chalk into the corner pocket. Did you get that? Game of Pinball.
