I watched some 9-ball on tv and the championship came down to Karen Corr vs. Allison Fisher. Karen Corr was just on top of her game though and came out with a 3-peat. That really got me in the mood to play pool so I watched a little more tv then headed down to the commons to play. I played 9-ball for a little while then started just working on my draw shot. After many many attempts I finally found a way that seemed to get it to draw back consistently. Then I remembered a trick shot from the other day that involved a draw shot, so I decided to try it out. The trick is to pocket four balls in one shot. I placed the 2-ball next to the side pocket, the 5-ball attached directly to the side of it, the 7-ball attached at an angle to the 5-ball and the 3-ball back in the corner pocket by you. The cue ball is inbetween the 3-ball and the 5-ball. The trick is to hit the cue ball into the 5-ball causing the 2-ball to drop into the side pocket, the 5-ball in the corner, the 7-ball in the opposite corner, and have the cue ball draw back and pocket the 3-ball into the corner by you. I don't know how long I spent trying to get this to work. At first I couldn't get the 5 and7-ball to drop. Then just the 7-ball. Of course all this time the cue ball wouldn't draw back into the 3-ball. Finally I was able to get the 2, 5, and 7-ball to go in easily. After a 100 something tries IT FINALLY WORKED. Somehow I just knew it when I hit it that time. The cue ball hit the 5-ball and came racing back, I heard the other 3 balls drop and lastly the cue ball tapped in the 3-ball. I couldn't believe it. I even had a couple of witnesses. All I wanted to do was have it work once, so after it did, I packed up my stuff and left.

Now for more Alias.
