The Snake Shot (15 Ball Combination)
DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: 0.9
CONFIDENCE FACTOR: 1 minute, 48 seconds per day for 3 days
SETUP/POSITION: 15 balls in a snakelike setup across the table surface. Start with the 15-ball 6 inches from the corner pocket TL. Set up the 14-ball 3 inches from the 15-ball and each successive ball 3″ back from the previous. Align by developing each “mini” combination so that 2 balls next to each other aim to the 3rd ball on either side of that set. DOUBLE CHECK!
BALLS(S) POCKETED/OBJECTIVE: Placing cue ball in a setup position straight in line with the first 2 ball combination, which is the (1)-(2) link, shoot and listen. The snake will sound like a clicking machine as the respective “mini” combinations make one big one (15-ball-TL).
