Best Answer

The cue stick is elevated to at least 45 degrees and the cue is quickly stroked through the cue ball pushing the cue ball into the table slate, which makes it then rebound into the air. People not knowing how to perform a jump shot attempt to "scoop" the cue ball, using a cue stick not elevated enough and striking below the center of the cue ball. In tournament play and conventional pool rules, this "scoop" is an illegal shot, and will give the table over to the opponent.
