Simulations are performed to show entrapment of air bubble accompanied by high speed upward and downwardwater jetswhen awater drop impacts a pool ofwater surface. A new bubble entrapment zone characterised by small bubble pinch-off and long thick jet is found. Depending on the bubble and jet behaviour, the bubble entrapment zone is subdivided into three sub-regimes. The entrapped bubble size and jet height depends on the crater shape and its maximum depth. During the bubble formation, bubble neck develops an almost singular shape as it pinches off. The final pinch-off shape and the power law governing the pinching, rneck ∝ A(t0 − t)αvaries with the Weber number.Weber dependence of the function describing the radius of the bubble during the pinch-off only affects the coefficient A and not the power exponent α.
