P.S. Doesn't look that tough.
The reason for not banking the 6 ball 1 rail is the risk of the 6 ball doubling the corners of the intended pocket and leaving a return bank. From the angle shown it's too tough of an angle to gamble with the shot. I believe that if you shoot this shot you will sell out just about as many times as you will pocket the bank, considering the score at 3 -1 in your favor it's not a good gamble. If i'm correct about the risk, then i'm sure you'll agree with the bad gamble part.
