Fram is a billiards slang term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.
In one pocket, a fram is type shot typically used in desperate situations when a player finds themselves in trouble with several balls around their opponent's pocket and no apparent reliable safety available. They resort to driving the cue ball hard into the object balls with the intention of knocking as many away as possible. Sometimes it works, however, often it does not but occasionally you might even make an object balls in your own pocket.

I have heard the term "fram" used to describe the act of attempting a hard shot with no skill, or put another way, a reckless shot in hopes of a good outcome.
He didn’t mean to pocket the 3 ball. He just closed his eyes and frammed it.
He clearly has no clue what he is doing. He just frams every shot.
