How to Do the "Jump through the Rack" Pool Trick Shot

Learn how to make the "Jump through the Rack" 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.

This shot's called jump through the rack. We have the eight ball and the cue ball lined up pretty much straight into the corner, but there's a rack in the way. So what I'm going to do is, I'm going to hit the cue ball down, causing it to jump a little bit. The cue ball's going to hit the eight ball down, make the eight ball jump up, go through the rack, and into the corner pocket.
