Thatís exactly why I didnít shoot that shot. The guy I was playing huts those long backs great.

So, your tangent line represents the direction the CB will travel if it hits the specific point on the OB where your tangent line touches the OB. Do you think that that specific point of contact is the ONLY point that can be contacted on this two rail kick shot?

I don't think so. There are many points of contact available, some to the left of your contact point (fuller hit) and some to the right of your contact point (thinner hit).

All it takes is a little thinner hit than you are representing to get the CB into the catchers mitt. Surely, you can comprehend that?

Only if your intention is to take a scratch, why would anyone do that here!

I may try and over cut the 1 ball and have it 2 rail the 14 out while trying to make the cb hit the 8 ball.

My opinion is that there are many ways to hit that ball that would defeat the tangent line rule. No more needs to be be said.

Shoot the 4 regardless. As long as you stay on the left rail you're good.

I also like kicking the 14ball exactly the way Rod describes it. Hitting the 14ball thinly offers the best chance of controlling both the 14ball and the cue ball. Also by playing to hit the 14ball thinly you will make the 14ball much more often. Banking the 4ball can work out well, however, there are too many possibilities that you may sell out a shot, a little too risky IMO. Cutting the 5ball demands a good hit with the right speed and it's only good if you make the 5ball. The risk with this shot out weighs the positives, since pocketing the 5ball for an average to slightly above average player is around 25%, maybe 33% but not higher because your focus will be divided between pocketing the ball and guiding the cue ball..eek. I don't see a top player shooting the 5ball, unless his name is Keith McCreedy.

I agree Doc.

I'm surprised no one has commented on Howard's shot. It requires good execution, but it's not overly difficult, and it does everything, including breaking up the combo.

Yeah, that's Howard's shot, and I like it better than anything if I don't shoot the 5.

I like 1 rail kicking the 14, having the cue track towards the dead combo in the stack. High right and a more full hit on the 14, just hard enough to get whitey to the stack.
