NV B.69 – Carom shots, from VEPS I

By • Feb 25th, 2019 • Category: Billiard Tips

Free Billiard Video –

Dr. Dave and Tom Ross show how to carom (kiss) one object ball off another to pocket a ball. Than tangent line and natural angle directions are used to plan these shots using the 90-degree and 30-degree rules. This is an example shot from Disc I of “The Video Encyclopedia of Pool Shots” (VEPS). The VEPS series includes over 750 shots in 50 different categories, with over 250 “gems” of the game. The series is the most comprehensive collection of pool shots ever published. Disc I covers basic shot making and position control.

This billiard video has been collected and “categorized” by editors. We add value by grouping and organizing the cue sport related videos found on the internet into logical categories.

  1. Agreed. We have several different examples of this on VEPS I.

  2. Hitting the cue ball above center in an attempt to tighten up the carom angle isn’t nearly as effective, because as you’ve demonstrated in another video:
    putting excessive overspin on the cue ball is not feasible.

  3. For carom shots like the one at 1:37, where you’re coming up short of the pocket, you can put some draw on the cue ball to develop the forward roll on the object ball a little sooner.
    With a little experimentation with shot speed and amount of draw, you can open the carom angle up quite a bit.

  4. … a very effective one. Tom is a great player. He modifies his bridge quite a bit as he gets close to a rail.

  5. 1:01 what kind of closed bridge is that?

  6. You’re welcome. There’s a lot more to come, as I finish the remaining DVDs in the series.

  7. Thanks for uploading this video. I am looking forward to trying out a few of these on a table.
