Pool Trick Shot - Billiards Back Again

8-Ball Trick Shot
8-Ball Trick Shot

8-Ball trick shot, made happily and accidentally--what are the odds?

An 8-Ball trick shot of the kind I hope to never (often?) see again.

So my pal misses the called 3 for Pocket A clean, stroking it fast as is required for the shot, winds up steeply cutting the 2-ball at high speed, which then bounces off the near and far rail before colliding with the 3-ball to sink it legally in Pocket A and continue his inning!

We could only laugh aloud and ask, "What are the odds of this shot?!"
