Definition of Across The String
Across The String is a billiards slang term that is a part of Scoring Terminology.
Across the string refers to a makeshift scoring mechanism that uses a wire or string, hung at each end above, or near the billiard table. The wire has discs that are used to represent a winning billiard game for each player. When a player wins a game in a match, a disc is moved from the middle of the string, "across the string" to the shooting player's tally. The discs are literally slid across the strings.
See: wire, on the wire, games on the wire for more on the meaning of "Across The String".
Across The String - Usage
Joe pocketed the 8 ball with grace to win the match, and so they slid one across the string.
