i like frank's shot also. i don't think he needs to cue it the way he has it lined up in the pic (maybe just sighting it?).
I like this shot, I shoot this shot as often as I can, however, the angle you're looking at here will send the cue ball toward the pocket if mishit. Plus the angle looks to be close to a kiss, both balls will be in close proximity of one another around the top right pocket. If the cue ball was a few more inches to the right of where it sits the shot would play much more natural, and with less risk. This angle will allow the cue ball to move more slowly and the OB will safely stay in front of the cue ball and leave the top right corner more quickly beating the kiss. Anyways..good eye Rod...this shot isn't easy to recognize and very seldom chosen, but a very effective shot, especially when you develop an understanding of the shot,Here's an option that Senor showed me some year ago. The balls are laying about perfect for this shot. The CB hooks more but I don't know how to draw that with the tools I have.
i understand the principleBanking the 9 ball moves a ball which currently goes in your hole. I would only do that as a last resort.

The 9 is also a blocker.i understand the principle
but shouldnt my shot still leave the 9 as a ball that goes in my hole??
not likely to get tied up to another ball
