  • How would you get...

    I was fooling around today on the pool table.

    I set this shot up that I remembered years ago seeing someone that played the shot that I tried to get both balls. He made it look easy!

    My pocket is the top right pocket.

    How would you get 2 & out here?

    BTW, the 1 and 3 ball are one balls width from the cushion.





    Sorry for the 'fuzzy' second photo.

    looks to tight to cross it with right draw to carom the ball but can yo follow through with right and get on the one with a firm stun spin stroke

      Cat, are you trying to make the bank with the 'stun follow' on the 3, or just hang it up?

        definitely make it and follow the cue down off the rail so protected if it hangs

          billy, you got me stumped. my best attempt is to draw three rails up by your top pocket and roll the 1. where the 3 goes, nobody knows....


          (first inclination was to kick the 3 extreme high inside and hold whitey there. think it's too steep. maybe angle of cue would help?)

          curious what the solution is.....

                I was able to stiff this ball and get shape with a firm inside punch but I my percentage was poor. I do think with practice I could increase the make to better than 50 %

                  Cross the red with low English and a hard stroke. Draw into the yellow and move it towards your pocket.

                      sure feels like a scratch executing the cross corner the way I'd "want" to shoot it - will have to set it up when I get home & give it a couple swings.

                        If in a match I like crossing the 3 and drawing into the rail then 1 like Peter said to push it to my side...

                        however, thinking outside the box, maybe try a 2 rail kick on the 1 ball first, CB comes up table then you bank the 3 for the game?

                          The 3 stiffs in pretty easily from there, and the CB, with a touch of rollthrough (and the holdup spin), ends up perfect for the 1. I made this shot the first time I tried it.

                            You're probably right, Larry. Have you tried it?

                              Yes, I believe this gets it.
