Good call, Billy. It does look like there is a path. The kick route is a little out of the usual starting/ending points that we are usually dealing with on those three-rail kicks though, which is presumably why no one else came up with the shot. If I was to use this kick I would probably try to use the "spot on the wall" to help execute it, given that the starting point is a little out of the ordinary. So, I've drawn a black line from the corner approximately to where I think the normal 3 cushion kicking line might be to end up at the side of the rack. Then marked that "spot" in the audience about 9 feet away (hope they don't move, lol), then kick with a little left english towards that spot. Bingo! I like itwincardona said:There's another shot that hasn't yet been discussed, and that is to play a three cushion safety with a medium soft speed and reposition the cue ball near the ball on the foot spot.
How many times have we played a three cushion kick toward our pocket? 1000's of times, right? Think a little out of the box and envision this shot, it's not that tough to do and the reward is a game winner.
Call me crazy if you like, but I can see myself actually playing this shot in high $$$ action. Believe it or not.
Where is the Ghost -- he could probably help me with this...
