Understanding Pool Slang

This alphabetical glossary helps pepper your pool playing language. You'll nod knowingly deciphering Hustlin’ Dave’s “He called the case nine in the side, a two-railer. He bounced it off the point with a major choke, it banks in the corner and he slips on the wrap, flips the stick out of his grip, and miscues. With ball-in-hand on the five I hooked him behind the six for the nine ride.”
