It doesn't really doesn't sound legit to me, because there aren't 10000 angles to choose from. Experience narrows every shot down to just 2 or 3 angles to choose from, whichever looks right.

The corner pocket for the bank shot is much smaller and about a foot and a half farther away than banking the ball straight across to the side pocket. Margin for error is around +/- 0.5° to hit the...
