fyi if you haven't watched this match, I don't want to spoil it for you..

otherwise, I'm curious about this shot/playing safe going three rails-
I've seen it before, just wondering about the process of shooting it
seems fairly predictable, but I'm also not smart enough to take it on
is it just a matter of knowing a kicking system?
I figure I could guess using feel and hit it a few times out of ten
but in a match, obviously you got one chance to hit..don't want to sell out

It is a common shot in one pocket and you may not see it in several games, or you may see it a few times, depending on how the balls set up. You do have to have it in your arsenal to be a decent one pocket player. You will see Alex P and T-Rex shoot it more often than some other players.

Alex owns that shot...will warp the cueball if he can't get it there with spin.
