    I had to work up to the bank that is within 3/4" of the rail, for I tried to use the cue to edge of the ob to aim, but finally I let go and let the force take over (Star Wars), and then I was alright and filmed it. I now wish I had gone closer to rail with the ob.

    But this is not a common bank at DCC, for they do a cross corner bank. But for OP this is a great bank!

        You ain't just whistling dixie! We all learned this shot by over cutting the intended straight in shot into the corner, but sure works in 9-ball.
        Great Name for the Shot!!! I got a laugh out of that one! Whitey

              Gulfport Doc, Howdy;

              Thanks from me as well, good to see them used in real life
              situations. Granted, the instructional is fantastic (Whitey),
              but seeing the actual usage helps lock it in, at least for me.
