You must know about at least a few tricky carrom shots that help you win a game. In this article, we will be covering some more tricky shots that you can practice while playing carrom game online. Let’s begin.
This tricky shot is played when one carrom man is blocking another carrom man’s way to the pocket. You aim to pocket two carrom men in a single shot. You try to hit the one that can push another carrom man into the pocket. Make sure that these two carrom men are in a straight line to the pocket. This shot is very useful in carrom 3D online too.
This shot covers the entire board and hence it needs lots of practice and skill. Flick the striker in a way that it touches all the three sides of the board and at the end hits the carrom man placed at your side and pockets it. This shot is to be played with a lot of precision and concentration so that it hits the carrom man at the end at the accurate angle.
The double shot is one of the best shots and almost everyone who plays carrom game online or offline knows how to play this shot. This shot is played when the object carrom man is placed anywhere near the centre. However, this shot is not played if the object carrom man is right in the corner of the board. The striker hits the carrom man in the opposite direction and after hitting the opposite side of the board, the carrom man comes back to your side or gets pocketed into a pocket on your side.
When a carrom man is behind the baseline on your side, you cannot hit the striker backwards directly because the rules prohibit that. In such situations, this shot comes to your rescue. You have to hit the striker quite hard so that it goes straight and comes back with equal force and pockets the carrom man into a pocket on your side.
Flicking the striker
The striker can be flicked in various ways. It is recommended that you try all the methods and stick to the one that suits you the best. However, if you change your way, your accuracy may just get better. There are two things that you always need to keep in mind while flicking the striker: keep your hand stable on the carrom board resting your palm. It ensures that the striker does not go backwards and gets flicked in the required direction. To play the shot well, make sure that your finger is quite close to the striker or it is touching the striker. It will serve two purposes: it will flick the striker the way you want it to, and it will save your finger from hurting.
To master all these tricky shots, you need to practice well. So, download a carrom app and win big by playing these tricky shots in carrom 3D online.
