lll said:senor , with the 10 ball off the rail would you not try to come off the long rail ( short rail to side rail)to end up in the same position. the 10 in that position is a bigger ball as i understand it . to hit it directly from the short rail if you are alittle off you hit the 10 towards his pocket and the q ball on the other side of where you want it. no?
The two railer is clearly the easier shot to execute because, as you said, it makes the object ball bigger. However, after years of repetition I came to recognize when it has a greater chance of scratching. Not saying this drawing is one of those situations, I was just throwing stuff out there that I have had success with. I would shoot the one railer sometimes (just enough to get SJD licking his chops ) if I felt there was a high probability of sliding off the object ball and scratching in the corner.
