History of the Trick Shot: The first time I saw this shot was the early 1970’s when a road player came to my pool room in Verona, NJ and set up the shot to show off after beating up on some of the locals. I tried the shot unsuccessfully until years later when my road partner Mike Massey gave me some pointers.
GTS Name and Why: Deception: When I finally mastered the shot, I realized that the shot was very deceiving as the cue ball heads in one direction with the 8-Ball going in the side pocket moving in the opposite direction. I thought about situations in life that appear to be headed in the wrong direction and people who mislead you. I realized that we must rely on God’s Word and what He will do!
