Carom = To strike and rebound

Carom shot = A shot in “pool” in which an object ball strikes another object ball before falling into a pocket.

Billiard shot = A shot in pool causing a cue ball to hit in succession, two object balls and driving the second hit object ball into a pocket.

Summation : Object ball off object ball = Carom shot

Object ball off cue ball = Billiard shot.

There are only two things you must know in order to shoot carom shots successfully. Where the aim point is on the carom ball and where the centerline points to on frozen ball carom shots.  If you are shooting the cue ball or another object ball to glance off the carom ball and into a pocket, you must first visualize a straight line from the center of target pocket to the closest point on the carom ball (see diagram).
