What he said.Though the speed of the shot might not work for controlling the cue ball,I would bear down on making the 8 in the upper right corner.

Every time I made this shot, the 8 ball hit more than a diamond from the sidepocket and came back...look at the video for reference

How about this situation...your opponent rattled the 13 ball and left you this on the 8 ball!

Or> shooting the CB straight into the side rail with left english and hitting the 8 off the 9 into the opposite side.

Looks like a low percentage shot to me. How about kicking it in, with the 8 flicking the 9 if you don't get enough English off the rail?

Or, how about the safety? If the angles there, soft draw with right english off the very edge of the 8, taking the CB into the 13 and potting the 12 as well, with the 9 running down to the bottom rail.

bank the eight off rail then into the back side of the 9, make sure 8 lays on the 12 and you'll have em hooked. You might even kick bank the nine in the side, and then opponent has only one ball to kick at.

These are always hard to judge looking at a screen. But it looks to me like you could just use right-english and some follow to crossover bank the 8 at pocket speed and get the cue to nudge the 9 out of the way. Bonus is that it could leave the 9 and 12 both along the rail on opposite sides of the pocket.

Your opponent has the 13 ball though...here is my jump cross side bank attempt...probably make 2 or 3 out of 10 on it.

In that case I guess I'd try to kick the 8 ball in the lower side.

the marks on the table in the video make it look like you practice that shot as many times as you break. Neat videos, and handy things to think about.

Cool. Nice shot! What camera equipment do you use and why are the rails red?

Havent tried this, but it looks possible to block the side pocket if you can hit the 12 full..
