It is time to explore one of my absolute favourites in Crokinole skills – the Irishman Rick O’Shea. Named after the play on words with “ricochet,” this shot is both clever and challenging, making it a mom joke for the boys. Let us dive into the techniques to perfect the Ricochet 20.

Understanding the Shot:
Some call it a Ricochet 20, others an Angle-in-20, but everyone agrees – it is a boatload of fun. The key to this shot is achieving a satisfying 135-degree angle between your shooter, the opponent’s button, and the centre hole. Adjusting the weight of your shot is crucial, especially when the opponent’s button is far out in the five.
