Dear Gentle Readers,

Had some nefarious medico administered truth serum to me, the header would have read: One of a Multitude of Shots I Never See.

But it’s this one I saw yesterday on Lenny’s excellent Arizona One-Pocket State Championship stream.

Actually I saw the shot executed in two different matches by Mitch Ellerman. Sad to say, it surprised me just as much the second time.

Here it is. Mitch had the lower right hand corner pocket. He had a potential bank off the far short rail. I was checking to see if he could beat the kiss when … wham!

He sent the object ball to the side rail instead, a three cushion bank shot that avoided that kiss and left the cue ball in a better position.

Awe and forgetfulness are my life,

Sunny

PS Oh would some Power the giftee gie us … I would blend Bernie’s um, stately pace of play with Lenny’s uptempo game.

Hey, Sunny - long time, pal. I'm afraid that few of us would find comfort in seeing ourselves as others see us. Spare me, Giftie! Thanks, but no thanks.
