I have had to resort to that type of shot before. I would rather not if I could avoid it but if there is no other reasonable choice why not. I'd say I'm 50/50 at best on that shot.

The reason I dont like it is that you end up transferring a lot of spin onto the object ball and it will have a tendency to come back out of the pocket. (at least when I shoot it)

It's a creative way to get out of a tuff spot though, nice shot.

There are actually a few correct ways to get on the 8 from here. Of course, each shot comes with its own problems so I'd actually have to be standing over the shot to make a decision here but these are the shots I'd consider:

1. Carom the 4 off the 10. This SHOULD straighten out the path of the cue-ball and allow me to miss the cluster completely. It's the ideal path to take but if there's any chance I'll clip that 15-ball, I'll have to consider something else. On big pockets, I'm going to strongly consider this approach.

2. Pocket the 4 clean and run into the cluster firm. This shot looks more appealing in the diagram than the picture. If I can make sure I run into the 14-ball first with speed, I should get a favorable carom off the 15 to bring me closer to the 8. I may even use a little jack-up draw to see if I can delay the draw action a little. On new cloth where I can anticipate a little extra roll (which is all I'll really need), I will strongly consider this approach.

3. The jump-shot. You can actually jump the cue-ball off the 4. Doing this requires a firm stroke and you'll miss the cluster completely. The only problem is, your cue-ball will be racing a bit so you might consider trying to jump with a little draw and see if you can slow down the cueball and/or run into either the 12 or 13. On slow cloth where the cueball is going to lose momentum quickly, I'll strongly consider this approach.

it's a cool shot, easy to forget this option until you've tried it a few times.

A real man of course will cut it in the corner with heavy low left and go three rails, threading between the 11-9.

I call this shot 'delayed draw'....the backspin doesn't take until the cue-ball
settles down and grips the cloth.....beautiful shot.

The jump shot in the video is actually a hanger.
