Definition of Short

Short is a billiards slang term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.

On bank shot, to come up short means to miss towards the near side of the pocket, in the direction that too much hold up english would tend to send the object ball. Also a table could be said to be playing short, when it appears to have a tendency towards shorter, more perpendicular rebound angles.

Short - Usage

I gave it a pretty hard hit but it still came up short in the end.
