The Porskoff Ploy was a Quidditch tactic named after Russian Chaser Petrova Porskoff. A Chaser flew straight upwards with the Quaffle in an attempt to make the opposing team's chasers follow him. Then, the Chaser with the Quaffle threw the ball directly down to a fellow Chaser below the opposing team's chasers. The move required pinpoint timing on the part of the Chasers.
During the play the Thimblerig Shuffle, one of the chasers flies above the others in a mock Porskoff Ploy, hoping to distract the opposing team into following them, leaving the chaser who actually has the quaffle open to score.
