Bristolian snooker star Judd Trump has missed out on winning the Welsh Open.
The world number 4 looked confident as he entered the final, but was unable to beat fellow Brit Stuart Bingham. He lost 9-8.
Many snooker players have trick shots but perhaps not on this scale. The Allstars Sports Bar in Bristol has posted an intricate sequence on its Facebook page, tagging it #puttoftheyear.
It was created by Shane O'Hara and has had millions of views. There have been some queries as to its authenticity but the pool hall insists it's "a real, proper full on Bristol trick shot".

Here it is in real time:
Police have made an appeal after a snooker cue, signed by legends of the game, including five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, was stolen in Plymouth.
Stuart Craig won it in a raffle. On his way back from showing off his prize to his mother - a man ran up to him and snatched it.
Mr Craig then paid the man £20 to get it back - but the thief ran off with the money and the cue.
The Snooker Legends who signed the cue were Ray Reardon, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Jimmy White, John Virgo and Michaela Tabb.
Here Stuart Craig talks about his loss.
