Do you guys think the 13 is entirely kissed toward your pocket by the 8 ball, or do you think there is a slight rub on the cue on its way by??

I'm guessing the shot works because the 13 drives the 8 into the cushion, allowing the 13 to slide down to the left enough that when the 8 rebounds it sends the 13 toward your pocket.

I did try it and got mixed results but enough to see it works -- just not enough to feel like I could control it. I did get good results of sending the cue ball 3 rails around the table

I also tried freezing both balls perpendicular to the rail and from about the 2nd diamond that cut back into my pocket at least once -- presumably the same concept.

Set it up last night. Went in like an arrow on the second attempt. The CB cuts the front ball a little to the left, allowing the rail ball to double kiss the front ball toward the hole.

Interesting shot. If a guy set up and practiced some variations of the shot, it would probably come up once in awhile. I don't see much utility for the shot in one-pocket because the rail ball doesn't leave the area very far. But it would be a good shot to have in a guy's arsenal for other games.

Ditto same with me except it took more than 2 tries cool shot !
Thanks Whitey.

Steve, I did your shot off 2nd diamond perpendicular, wow that's a great alternative. From the pocket I lined up the left edge of the cb to the right edge of the ob ball on a line going directly back into the corner pocket I was shooting out of, and wow it rocketed in the hole. Great shot! I was amazed! It gets a lot of push off the ball frozen to the rail.
To answer your ? I stop this video on contact and it appears the 13 moves ever so slightly left before coming back but must be coming on the angle needed, and then gets inertia from the 8. Or, the 13 gets squeezed between the 8 and cb and pops back. I will get a s.slow motion video of the contact and we might be able to see what happens. Congrats guys, for making the shot, and posting! Whitey
