For the amount of side spin shown, you have to way over cut it to get a kiss. At that point, you are probably going to run straight into the 10 anyway after two rails.Bob, is it safe to say, if you overcut it you most likely double kiss?
Here is an example over-cut that gets a kiss. In this case, the 8 gets kissed from behind and into the pocket and I'm left with a two-rail on the 1 ball. This is the way I prefer to make the shot especially against those weak-willed individuals who can't take a few bad rolls.
But it is important to note that a small change in the positions or some change in the table might make the kiss more likely. I did as well as I could to match the original photo, but it's hard to get the exact position. My first try to match the photo made it nearly impossible to kick in the 12 ball but move it a quarter ball and it's easy.
