My thought as well.

Why bottom right and not just right?

Trying to hit it a little thinner and load up more spin off the second rail after contact so it doesn't come straight back off the second rail. Personally i feel more confident shooting it that way. But Peters idea using left is most likely the correct way for what i was trying to achieve regardless. I don't think i was right and was guessing....lol Probably why i sell out a lot

Peter is crossing it the other way to leave the CB down on the foot rail. I think that sells out the 1 ball bank unless you get real far over...(you can run the CB into the 10 and its pretty free, or go 3 rails around with the CB and come under the 10)

I think we are confusing the kick with the bank. If i'm banking i'm playing all bottom right to create a slight masse to flatten out the angle coming in. If kicking i think i also suggested using bottom right...but on further review Peters shot using left is most likely the correct way to get the cue ball back to where it started on the kick...

This is what I like using a bit of right to direct the cue ball to that area. I would do this even if I didn't have a couple of balls to protect. I remember talking to Tom Wirth about this situation.Name:  jazzinpool.jpg

Tip of right spin, try to bank the 7 about half way over on the foot rail... this should put the cb back near where it is now taking the side pocket scratch out of the equation... play from there...

Oops... sorry Frank, was posting and didn’t see your reply...

problem with that shot is you get very little gain if you dont hang it up.

and sellout if you go in either the side pocket, or the top corner, or hit the tit, or hit the ten ball. and all those come into play from that thin hit from a distance and near the rail.
