Good shooting and thanks for the video.

I think your shot is actually harder than Jayson's. Look where his cue crosses the diamonds. Also, I believe his object ball is entirely below the last...

Well, it seems to me that along the line he was shooting, the natural path is two cushions to the corner pocket, or close to it. Or maybe he was worried about some other scratch or the kiss which he...

I would describe that as a fine result, especially if you keep your cloth and balls clean. On dirty, old cloth, you have to shoot to 2 on pool tables. On one table I play on, you have to shoot to 1...

If you want to work on your stun shots, you could allow all six pockets. Or maybe require all six.:grin-devilish: That would help with drop-pocket tables.

Well, no. The shot can be made lots of ways. Inside, outside, nothing, follow, draw.

I still see no reason to believe he played it with any left side spin.

And another factor....
