How to shoot this shot - 04-01-2014, 08:51 PM

It's the last ball on the table. It's aimed right between the upper and lower left corners. Which pocket do you put it in?

I assume you'd want to shoot in one of those two corners, though other options are welcome as well.

If the setup is exact, if you soot in the right pocket, you need to do a bit too much to the cueball to avoid the chance of a side pocket scratch. Plus the shot in the left is easier by a decent margin, and you don't have to keep half of your head into avoiding the scratch.

I also shot this in the upper left (and missed). It seemed easier to see. Thinking about it later, I thought the lower left might have been the better choice, because the rail increases the margin of error for the shot, making the pocket in effect larger.

It is a relatively easy cut to the top right corner pocket. A tip of low would be adequate to eliminate any chance of it going into the side pocket.

Top right pocket is much bigger and my preferred call. It doesn't appear to be difficult to avoid the scratch either.

The blind back cut to the top left is a small pocket. Don't care for that option.

to keep from scratching in right side pocket. if you look at the tangent line you would see with out low left you would be in danger of scratching.

as another poster said ...right side corner shot is make able also. without being in danger of scratching in left side pocket.

it all just depends on how good you are at cut shots and reading tangent lines.

Its a more natural way to pocket the ball, and it allows a little fuller hit on the ob, and brings your tangent line farther from the side pocket than draw alone.

I must be crazy because I favor the bottom left corner pocket. I set it up on my table and the angle is actually alot shallower on a real table than what it looks like on the above diagram.





This is my poolcue. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My poolcue is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My poolcue, without me, is useless. Without my poolcue, I am useless...
