Definition of Jawed
Jawed is a billiards slang term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.
Jawed refers to when the object ball bounces between the two tits of a pocket and then fails to fall into the pocket.
Balls normally get jawed when they are shot either at a poor angle, shot too hard, or both.
Also, once a player gets jawed, the opponent is left with a very easy shot, as the object ball usually comes to rest right on the edge of the pocket.
See: knuckle, tittie, tit, tits, titties, horn, point, tittie hooked, corner hooked, jaw, angled, jawed ball for more on the meaning of "Jawed".
