Default Member sent me a PM...

A member in very good standing sent me a PM regarding this type of, 'kick shot' in one pocket.

Your opponent has a ball within 0.5 diamonds of his pocket, you want to kick that ball accurately and safely towards your pocket.

Here's his Pm to me, with diagram.

Attachment 23373

bill
this shot comes up alot in onepocket
where if you can kick bank it to your hole
its a strong shot since the cue ball goes up table on his side
i showed several cue ball positions
i could have shown several object ball positions
is there a system to figure out where to hit the short rail to make the bank ??
i am just hitting those by feel with not enough success rate yet to make me happy.

Here is my reply to him, with also explanation and diagram.

I think this has to become a standard shot in ones armory. Given the fact that players now love to snooker you from seeing that object ball on the rail. I like to use a little low outside on the cue ball to make the object ball go flat and kill the rock a little going up towards the kitchen at the same time.

This is a great way to avoid that 'automatic double kiss' when the Q and object balls align with the pocket points.

you want an angle that you can perfectly see. that only comes with center ball no english. this way you can hit the spot on the object ball more precisely.

How do,'You' determine the correct angle to aim into the 1st rail with center ball to contact the OB perfectly on the correct side not to, 'double kiss'!

Thanks Cincy!

I can't remember the exact year, maybe around 1990 a new room opened by a Chicago Cop, John Hollic. The room was having the Grand Opening and he invited Mike Massey, Grady and myself to put on clinics & trick shot exhibitions.

Grady and I had always been close friends for many years, he as I did him, respected each others knowledge of are chosen games. While there that weekend, I collaborated and advised Grady on several systems he chose to share with the pool community. He as Freddy was, were GREAT students of the cue games till the end, as I will be myself!

Mike and I have also been friends, not close, but friends. He appeared doing the, Pool Artistic' shots and I the Carom Artistic. Grady opened up the day with his clinic, it was GREAT! I then came on in the late afternoon and did my exhibition, it went just as well! Mike was to highlight the evening with His Pool Trick shots. He and Grady both stayed in the afternoon to watch my show. After it was over, both Grady and mike congratulated me such a professional performance. I was very happy to have their appreciation.

Some minutes after the crowd settled down form the 3C show, Mike pulled me over to the side and constantly kept asking me, "How do you get so much action on the CB, and hardly ever hit the cue ball with a lot of force." I told him, "80% of it is, 'Natural ability' and the proper 'old school' instruction by a master!" But also, my discovery of multiple differently applied strokes/tempos and speeds, and the most important lesson, is to KNOW when to use them." He was very grateful, and proceeded to incorporate some of the info I shared with that afternoon in the evening show, BTW, I thought it was pretty ballsy to try techniques He had just learned.

I went off on a tangent, but, the Grady mention, brought back that fond memory.
