Definition of Trap

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

As a verb, to trap your opponent would mean to leave them faced with a particularly difficult or confining situation, where it is tough for them to find an easy or safe return shot, and the player so trapped might even have to resort to taking a scratch. As a noun a trap would describe such a situation. It should be noted at this juncture that it is quite possible to accidentally trap yourself by leaving just such a situation after making a ball in your own pocket. A scheme to set up an advantageous gambling match up.
