Great shots

Here's a compilation of awesome "carreaux", i.e. hitting an opponent boule in such a way that your own boule takes its place, or moves from there closer to the target ball. These players use backspin and sidespin like pool champions.
It explains why at that level, there are seldom more than 2 or 3 boules in the immediate vicinity of the target ball. Whoever is closest (even at say - 3ft) gets shot out. Being close can even be a disadvantage because someone else will just use your spot.

Hence the last boules are the most important ones: no wonder these players always know exactly who in the other team has how many boules left.
