Well, I set the situation up again and found that I had to smudge the position of the two and three a bit from what I think the image shows me. Not much mind you. Banking the three became easy but...

Banking the eight was a piece of cake. I had to play the six differently than I expected. I crossed over the high side of the stack and cut the three splitting the stack nicely. I ran a total of six...

Hi Dennis. Nice shot.
I show that same shot in my first DVD video. A different scenario but the same shot. I too learned it way back in the '60s.
