How to Make the "Window" Pool Trick Shot

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


"Hi, I'm Andy the magic man Segal and I'm here at Willow Billiards in Hoboken New Jersey. Doing some trick shots and pool instruction. So if your ready let's get started.

Okay this shot here is called the window shot. What we have is the one, two, and three are over here. The one ball is two balls of the rail, where the edge is aligned with the point, same thing with the two. The three ball is slightly in to the rail, so it's coming just about here. And what we have here is ten balls lined up on the third diamond, with a two ball gap right there, four balls over there. The idea behind the shot is to make the one the side, the two the bank, the three comes down here. The cue ball will then back up squeeze through the window curve forward and pocket the four. The way you hit this shot is your hitting this shot with a little bit of high left hand English. Uh, you want to hit the two ball just before the one. The cue ball will hit the two then the one, which will take it back this way, the high English will cause it to kick in right here, curve and follow into the four. The left English on the cue ball will cause the two ball to bank. The key to this shot is don't break the glass. Just like that.
