Willie Joplin’s Dream Shot
Willie Joplin claims to have gotten up in the
middle of the night to diagram this shot fearing he might forget
it before morning.
Set up the shot as diagrammed. Position the
2 and 3 one balls width off the rail and a half ball down the table
from the side
Freeze the 1 against the 2 online with diamond 7. Then freeze the
4 to the one dead to the point indicated on the head rail.
Position the cueball between diamond No. 3 and
the side pocket. It’s imperative to control “snow” on this shot,
so shoot with a crisp draw stroke to stay out of the 3’s
Aim the 1 half-way between the 2 and 4 balls
and the shot is “on”.
