Hi,I am Andy,the magic man Segal.I am here at Willow Billiards in Hoboko,New Jersey doing some trick shots and pooling instructions.So if you are ready,let's get started.This shot here is called the just showin'off shot,it was made famous by great pool player named Steve Mizerak.He did it for a miller light commercial.This shot is 5 balls set up here.We have the 1 and the 2,lined up straight across the table about a chalk's gap from the other point.Then we have the 3 and the 4 in the front of the side pocket and the 5 ball lined up for this corner pocket here which is lined up about a ball's width off the point.What I am gonna do is I am gonna shoot the cue ball into the 1,the 1 ball is gonna hit the 3 go into the side pocket,2 ball goes cross side,4 in this side, 3 in the corner, 5 in the corner while the cue ball travels 3 cushions around the table to make the 9 in the corner pocket.And that's just showing off.
