Rather read than watch? Read about the Coffin Trick Shot below:

We are going to walk you through the coffin shot. This is a pretty hard shot and there's very minimal setup.

Coffin Shot Set-up:

The nine ball should be set up by the edge of the pocket. Next you would just line up the remaining balls in a straight line on the second diamond. Cue ball is in hand by the first diamond. The execution is the difficult part of the shot.

Executing the Coffin Shot Step 1:

Put your knee on the table, just so it's more stable. You want to have a solid bridge hand and a pretty loose back grip using only two fingers. Bridge on your leg aim towards the point you want to aim, as if you’re going to bank it.  

Executing the Coffin Shot Step 2:

Now, for aiming on the shot, a table away. aim like you’re trying to bank the balls. I’m going to aim a little past the middle of the table. Avoid putting too much side spin so I'm going. Aim mostly just draw, mostly to backspin. You should have a little bit of right spin but not much.  Why? Because it's much easier control a straight spin than a side spin.

Executing the Coffin Shot Step 3:

On the cue ball I'm going to do around six maybe five thirty.  Make sure to have a really good follow through. When you hit that shot you don't want to stop your motion before the table.  You want to follow through until the tip hits the table.
