It's your shot, you have the bottom right pocket.

I see three parts to this solution, aggressive, nice defense and system!

What would YOU do?

I would fire the nine ball straight ahead into the long rail and back into the thirteen ball, driving the 13, 12, and maybe the 10 ball to my side,while following the same path with the CB using RHE to place the CB behind the one ball.

P.S. defense is spelled d e f e n s e

Bank the 4 into the 6 and go 4 rails behind the one ball.

This one is too easy, given that it was posted by Mr. 3C. That said, I'd give this answer no matter who posted it.

Bank the 4 ball into the stack and bring the cue ball around three rails, well really 4 rails, and nestle into the 13/1. Balls generally move to my side, especially the 8 and 5, and maybe the 3. Hold for applause.

I always have a hard time knowing from a picture, but it looks like maybe a 1/3 ball hit with 2 tips of 8:00 english. I'd like to understand the "System" you referenced for this.

I knew it would be too EASY, but you don't see many players actually play this shot, for fear of not being confident of the CB path, especially with the 4 ball frozen to the cushion!

The 4 cushion billiard is the shot!

I should of said there's 4 elements to this solution to improve the accuracy!

In a few I'll post the 'elements' and 'technique!'

I'm always looking for variants of that shot. This is probably my favorite:

Billy....Huh? - I'm surprised to see you say this...every One Pocket player that can play pretty good or better, that I know, will shoot this shot.

All do respect Bruce, from what I've seen here, many members won't even consider going more than 1 cushion to play even a safety! Just 'my' observation!

If we didn't know it before Danny DiLiberto's commentary, we definitely know it now. Easy to bury the guy, too - large landing zone with those balls by his foot rail.

So, the shot in principle is simple enough. But, when faced with the CB frozen and the CB a little behind the 'perpendicular' to the 1st rail, takes a little 'technique' to play with confidence! Also, actually 'knowing' where to contact ALL 4 cushions can't be a bad thing!

For that aspect the, 'Plus 2 System' is extremely helpful in aiding of the execution of this type of shot!

Attachment 12065

What's needed here is a, 'controlled jab' (short stroke). It allows the CB-52 to come off the first cushion with the angle that's needed to contact 23 on the LH short cushion. This is the contact point needed to continue to the third rail 'THRU' the cushion to AP-75 on the long rail!

As Cory DC stated, one-third ball looks to be correct here, but, with 9 O'clock English. That's the easy element to contacting the OB. It's the 'correct stroke' to employ regarding the frozen 4 ball that's a little more involved. Too long and slow of a follow-thru and stroke and the CB could travel the path of a scratch! Too little ball and the 4 ball doesn't do much as far as moving some ball towards your hole!

One approaching shots with the CB traveling, 'multiple cushions' it's a good idea to stand behind the CB and visualize the CB traveling the path and practice 'stroking the cue' from the upright position to get the feel of the 'speed' needed to accomplish your goal!
