Returns back Somehow

  1. Feb 13, 2006 #1
    Hi guys,,

    Is it possible or can it happen,,,Like
    Is there any way possible that ball can return back to the pool table itself back somehow when it pierces into the hole either by making use of its momentum or by any arrangement possible...

    I have seen it happen on a snooker table, but the ball did not actualy settle in the pocket, i think the ball must have had a lot of spin.

    really?
    Did it enter and came back from the same hole...?

    Yes the same hole, but you would need a high speed camera to see what actualy happened.
