Trap queen

Updated: May 7, 2023



When we play carrom, it is more of a chess game and less carrom. It's less about winning and more about making it frustrating for the opponents to win. We come up with schemes just to ruin the opponent's plan. The carrom we play is not at all gentleman's game, we do not sledge, we roast each other, and we laugh out of our ass when we spoil the easy-looking game for opponents. We coined some beautiful phrases that I thought I would share here.


Monkey business (my favorite); deliberate effort to block pockets with your pieces so it becomes frustrating for opponents to pocket theirs.

Trap queen: Ironically, the queen is the least sought piece when we play carrom. In fact, we often we position queen close to the pocket to lure opponents for an easy finish.

Kiss her while you're at it; a strike that is aimed at a piece but you ensure it touches the other piece(s) as well. Essentially, it frees the pieces you cannot pocket easily.

Spread it out; hit the striker so hard that it frees all the pieces

Hug Diya...

Carrom is a game which revises the plan which we think should be done in the next shot... So carrom concludes one thing ie, Learn from the Past mistakes & Rectify the same till you don't get it perfectly done...

Hey, what I learnt from carrom is that every strike counts in life. And your first strike can make alot of difference.

That is a good analogy.
