Do you mean off the 4th rail? Long_short-long-long.

I think thats too hard and 3 will come back to offer a good shot.

Not sure about this. For me the goal in kicking the 3 ball from the bottom rail is a soft hit keeping the 3 ball in the banking lane of that straight back.

Just cross the three ball and focus on avoiding the kiss. Don't try to make it but get the cueball back up table by the one ball.

Yes, but I didn't count the rail before contact.

Granted, I need to hit the 3 less than half-ball, but CB runs like crazy without shooting very hard. I've shot similar quite a bit and rarely comes out bad, plus, moves the 3 where it's a threat to him as much as to me, and especially in this case, the two balls on the spot will complicate matters for him if he tries to do something with the 3.

You've got 10-6; 10 on top for $20, winner pays the time.

P.S. How's Danny O doin'? Haven't seen him in a while.

My objective is the same but I think my shot is easier to execute with more margin for error.

Yes easy to do, just make a fairly thin hit, CB goes to the cornfield. 3 will be fine, good eye.

Of course I'm banking the 3ball cross corner.

Default You need 2 to win

My opponent used left spin and cut off the left edge of the 1, causing the 1 to bank toward my long rail near the head string (which took away the straight back), as the cue ball went 3 rails (long long short) onto or very near the bottom rail about a diamond and a half from my pocket.

I don't know what his intentions were, possibly to put me under the 3? Maybe just to get to the bottom rail?

Of course and use the three ball as a shield on the one ball.
