Last ball on the table. Your pocket is top right. Wwyd? 100 a game.
If you are past the point on the corner pocket, that is such a consistent scratch. Even very different tables, it will scratch lol.This morning out of curiosity since I have not tried a shot like this, I tried the cut on the 6 into the hole, I hit it a little thick and scratched, hit it perfect 'I thought' the next time, made it, but cb doubled out and went kitty corner and scratched!
All that other stuff you guys are discussing is way over my head! I'll have to work that stuff to get up to speed. Whitey
You are shooting with the cueball in the wrong corner I believe.cowboy dennis had a thread or 2 or 3 on this several years ago
I could only find this thread
as for what would I do
I listen to my elders and shoot rods or toms shot

I can't remember the match it's from, but I have a clear memory of Duel shooting that cut shot.I would shoot the shot to go near my side pocket and roll the cueball down on the end rail , I have seen too many good bankers make the ball one rail if you only come up 2 or 2 1/2 diamonds even when cueball is on the rail , Luat banked one in near the side pocket from just above the second diamond , so the others aren't that tough.
He killed the cueball with inside english and the ball never came out of the kitchen.
For the guys cutting the ball , its definitely make able, even I have made it many times for 5 a game and some tables are easier than others , but I can't remember ever seeing any of the great shot makers play the shot in a serious game.
