Actually, that is a situation that I have heard players from the DC area (I believe) refer to as "Nelly's Room" -- when a player banks a ball back into the stack, at the same time positioning the cue ball into a crevice in the stack. That banked ball comes back in to slam the door

There was a guy in San Francisco who refinished pool tables and was a top mover in one pocket. He rarely played but when Gerda lived there and played at Family every day, he would come in and teach her shots. One of the shots I saw him practice over and over was kicking the cue ball back in the rack. Gerda practiced 8-10 hours a day and that is what kept her close to the top of the women’s tour. Family in those days was action all day long and on the weekends, the action moved to Daly City where the Filipinos played. Action 24 hours a day from Thursday night until Monday morning. It was great.
