That is a good point Larry. I think you could in fact use where the cb goes to a certain extent if the ob was further from the pocket, and if it was pocketed.nice work blake
interesting to me that especially on shot #1 at about 1:30 shows the cue ball coming backwards to the short rail and seams clear (to me)that it was a rail first hit
that would suggest that where the cue ball goes cant be used as proof for rail first or not
before seeing your video i would not have thought a rail first hit would allow the cue ball to angle off the rail so sharply
This great video answers the questions addressed in the other thread. Blake was asking how the cb can come off like that on a rail first hit. It is clear from the video that the ob can be caught a LOT "thinner" than I thought personally, which would account for that directions of travel. I think my (or our?) mistake was assuming the ob had to be hit somewhere near the ghost ball position. I mean my god, he cut that ball quite a few degrees right into the rail and it went in no problem.
