Diane; YOU did an absolutely fantastic job with this video! I know Jeff would REALLY be proud of you bringing the World into Jeff's world!

I'm really impressed that you made it possible, just to be able to see these shots again!

Once again, GREAT job!

Thanks, but on a new thread on onepocket I put the wrong link. I can't seem to delete this even though I went into edit. HELP!! And now I realize the bottom link works. This is one for me to learn--haha!

Hi Diane.....I was a friend of Jeff's for many, many years..we played quite a few games of One Pocket over that time, and also I watched him practice the multi-ball trick shots for years. I also visited him in Florida over the winter about 12 yrs. ago.

Congratulations on what you've done so far - the first video looks great! - keep up the good work..and I think, audio-wise, the electronic sound effects mixed with the sound of the balls was a perfect choice - much better than having some cheesy music playing, like most pool videos have.

I'm sure Jeff is smiling up there.

Best Regards, Ghost/Bruce/Luke

Ok, Doc said I'm supposed to conclude the wwyd now...

No surprise, that the cagey Billy I. made note of what I mused in my initial post...

I'm curious to see who picks the shot that I liked here, and chose to shoot.

Dr. Bill

That said..it's kinda surprising that nobody spotted the shot that I did shoot - maybe in the pic the cut looks too thin to be manageable...

But first of all, as for the feasibilityavailablity /of a couple of the other suggestions - some weren't available or laying right - which you can't exactly tell from the picture..i.e...

There was too much angle to bank the 10 ball straight back, and hold the cueball within reason...

Billy's combo-bank was lined up to go a little too high - as he thought it may have been...

And Tom's 2-railer wasn't laying quite right - the tangent line, cueball-to-the-9 was laying aimed dead ahead at the left top corner pocket..I would have had to cut the 9 to the right to play the 2-railer, and cutting it, would have precluded my being able to do the right thing with the cueball...and also the left edge of the 3 ball was very close to being in the way of the 9 coming off of the second rail.

So anyway...since I do generally hit cross-corners well, including tough off-angle ones, and I like shooting them..I shot the thin-hit cross corner bank of the 6 ball, with the intention of having it kick in my 2 ball...

I chose to shoot it knowing that after the 6 kicks in the 2 (if I hit it good enough to make it) the 6 will bounce right up in front of my pocket, giving me perfect position for a simple second shot...and also, I know that this shot will come out safe if I miss = with a short firm draw stroke, I'll have the cueball strike the 9 ball full - this will cause the cueball to stop right there, leaving Pat still safely doubled up on his 12..and it will also open up the 10 ball for me...

My result being...I hit it pretty good, the cueball stopping where I meant it to - but my hit on the 6 wasn't quite good enough to make the 2 - I banked it a little short, and it hit just above my pocket, then dropping down to where you see it now.

- Ghost
