THE JUMP SHOT

The Jump Shot

The shot in this Diagram is by no means as hard as it looks. The idea is to shoot with an elevated cue into a ball frozen to a rail and then jump back over the second ball, going around the table, as shown to score. I don’t mean to imply that it is easy, which is why I have rolled up my sleeve in the drawing, but once a good player gets the hang of it he may be able to make it one time in three. It helps to use a bit of draw as well as left English on the cueball, otherwise the cueball will slow up on its way to the other end of the table.
