I was happy to stumble into this one in an 8 ball tourney this weekend. My balls were badly clustered around the table. With lots of work to do, I landed myself on these tied up balls with the intention of playing a safe while getting them separated. As soon as I lined up on it I realized I could clear the 14 without it touching the 11 and applying a little forward I came off the rail to pocket the 11 with the cue ball. The big-pocket Valley took care of the rest.

Not the most advanced or difficult shot but I was pleased to identify that it was there and change gears to offense mode.

Sorry if my ChalkyPad skills blow.

You can also play the shot when the balls are frozen and the second one starts to move some. The left side spin helps the cue ball catch up and redirect the back ball to the pocket.

I would never in a million years think to hit a ball like Earl Strickland does here:

So that's new to me.

That's a half-ball-follow angle shot. It's a very important shot to know and can get you out of a lot of jams.

I learned a shot where you jack the cue up and shoot into the rail to make the white jump over obstacle. I have also accidentally made it curve when it lands back on the table using sidespin
