If I miss the spot shot, I'll still knock the ball away from opponents pocket and the spotted ball will be in the table middle if missed short or long.
about where do you put the cue ball for this???

I think I'd shoot the spotted ball and attempt to hit the ball on the rail directly after making the spot shot and live with the results.

For those who are afraid to shoot, you could play safe off either the spotted ball or the ball on the rail. I hate this shot because I don't want to pass up the possibility of winning while safeing my cash away.
this is how I practiced spot shots when I first started playing one pocket meaning to make the ball and take the ball out of his pocket for shape

From the picture, probably 1/2 way between the long rail and the center of the headstring. A 12 o'clock high natural cue ball hit. It's a shot type that's played allot in every game, going off a ball and going into another. I like my chances allot, of making that spot shot more often than missing it.

thanks to all who responded
spot shot scenarios often come up at crucial times in a game/match
so making the right decision and of course executing it is crucial.
thats why i am always interested in how others approach these problems
well danny di decided to shoot the spot shot with follow
dont know whether he just wanted to go up table
or if he was trying to hit the 2 and missed
he missed the shot leaving madina a shot which he made and then mandina made his game ball

he must of needed just one here. but still a bad shot. he passed up a 90% shot for something that can do him little good over just shooting it in.

My problem with how Dileberto shot this shot is his speed. I would have shot this also but with enough speed to leave my cue ball near the side. There is no straight in shot left. Maybe a double kiss bank.

Danny D. must have needed them both, based upon where he put the CB for the cut spot shot. He was trying to knock out the other ball to give himself some kind of bank. I he'd needed just the 1, he would have put the CB further to his left. Surprised he missed the shot. He was one of the great shot makers.
