    I am also interested in 3-ball pool break shot tips.

    What is the best way to sink all three balls in a straight line? There is a bar here in Kansas which has a jackpot of $2000 for the first 3-ball player to sink all three balls at once on a 3-ball break.

    Is it possible to pocket all of the balls on a 3-ball break shot? If so, does anyone know how that is done?

    Remember, in this scenario, we do a 3-ball rack with the balls racked in a straight line (as shown in the 3-ball rules on this site), and not the triangular version of the 3-ball rack.

    Thanks,
    Douglas

    @Douglas,

    Here is how to make all three balls on the break shot in a straight 3-ball rack: You will want to hit the balls in the rack from behind. In other words, hit the cue ball off of the back rail into the back of the straight line of racked balls.

    I have seen guys make all three balls on the break shot two times in a row with this technique.

    I am in Colorado, but for $2000 I might head to KS. What is the name of the bar?
