Definition of Sink In Shot

Sink In Shot is a billiards term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.

A sink in shot is any shot where the shooting player intentionally accounts for the elasticity of the cushions with the intent to allow the object ball to bank past an otherwise blocking ball. The moving ball will sink in to the cushion very near the blocking ball giving it sufficient space to get past it or kiss off the rear side of it.

Sink In Shot - Usage

There is no way that you can make it past that Garry. The eight ball is in the way and there isn't enough room for you to thread the needle between it and the cushion. Sure there is Ross, I'll just use a sink in shot.
