    Practicing the two rail kick is great but in this layout it’s not the best shot IMO. The combo is pretty safe and if you make it there’s plenty to shoot at afterwards

            There is one shot which no one has mentioned. Coming off the seven and dropping down to the bottom rail. The 9 looks like a scratch from the looks of it and two rail kick on the 8? I dunno John, where’s the cue ball going with all that speed?
            Coyotes, Eagles, and Deer, oh my!

              What you need to practice on this shot is where your cue ball lands. If you hit the eight quarter ball, the 8 goes to your side and the cue come up table.

                  Way easier to scratch off the 7 than the 9.

                  Someone save this for the next prop-shot

                    the 9, 7 and 8 all looked too scary for me to come off the side of it and get to side rail. You probably had a better chance to thin them and get to the bottom rail first.

                    actually, I guess you can set it up on a table and try it:

                    - 9 ball is on the spot
                    - CB is froze to the rail 2nd diamond

                    not saying it cant be done, but it was too close for me to try.

                    Let me know if anyone sets it up, thx!

                        I would never shoot the 2 railer to kick the 8....too much risk, not enough reward. From my seat, it looks easy enough to come off the 11 and slide above the 9 towards the side rail. I like opening up my side, and I don't think he'll have any strong bank options, even if the cue ball doesn't get down to the bottom rail. If the cue ball hits the top of the 9, it will still slide over to the long rail and out of trouble.

                          Playing off the nine to go two rails behind the eight looks dangerous...something about it just looks like a scratch. All the other safes from this position seem kind of weak. I guess I kind a like jacking up and firing the 14 with enougj speed and enough draw to slide across the table into a safe position. It’s a free shot and I like the idea of being aggressive since there’s not a safe play I feel good about.

                              This is a standard practice shot that needs to be practiced. Forget about all the other balls, for practice put a ball on the spot and start with the cue ball at one corner and work your way to the other pocket. I usually just use two speeds, pocket speed and firm. You also need to practice full, 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 ball hits.

                              In this diagram a 1/2 ball hit to send the 9 into the 1 should have the cue ball going to the 1/4 diamond above the corner pocket. A 1/4 ball hit should be a scratch, real good speed gets a hook behind the 8. Send me a $100 for the lesson. lol.

                                On new and clean felt or on my home table I like the shot but on the worn dirty felt at the pool hall I don’t like it one bit
