Let me interject here and give you a word of advice from a 50 yr veteran of this game. At least 95% of the time that you have a ball that can go cross- corner or cross-side, choose to shoot it cross-side. Cross-side is the most powerful shot in bank pool. Short distance to travel into a big pocket.
The ease at which one can make a cross-side usually outweighs most safety considerations.
