This Trick Shot Is Insane


We’ve played our fair share of pool in our lives, and can make a decent percentage of the shots we take. But there’s a huge gulf of difference between what we can do on the table and the trick shot mastery of the Chinese player in this video. The trick shot he pulls off is a miracle of planning and physics.

Filmed in the town of Huaian in the Jiangsu province, the clip starts with an array of balls set up on the table. He then makes a series of seemingly impossible shots, banking balls through obstacles and winding up perfectly placed at the base of hearts made of balls. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the final trick shot involves not only chipping the cue ball out of the triangle but narrowly missing a series of wine glasses.
