I've watched it a few times, and I believe it was Tony's intent to put the cue ball into the stack after the kick. He missed the stack, but made the ball, so he got away with it.The vid asked if it was luck or skill. I'd have to say skill-- he executed it perfectly. But IMO there tends to be variance in these types of accurate jump shots. I'd have to say that the shot was foolhardy, but it was his backer's money. The fact is if he missed pocketing the ball, look what he leaves for the opponent. OTOH that's the way these guys play today.
