Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A difficult shot in billiards. With the three balls almost in a straight-line ‘tie-up,’ with no cushion to aid, and too far out for a massé, the striker is required to carom by double contact, so as not wholly to sacrifice position. He must drive the first ball nearly full upon the second or his own will go wide of the mark. Out in the open the force communicated to the second ball will almost equal that imparted to the first, and the striker's ball has to travel about fifteen inches to catch up.
