    How to shoot this bank???

    HTML]http://pool.bz/P/?@1EUdy4Qcpp4RUao@[/HTML This bank shot is to go to pocket A. The cue ball and object ball are 2 ball widths off the rail. Would you shoot this differently in One Pocket (soft) than you would in Bank Pool? How would you shoot it straight back?
