The other night in league I was stripes. The shot before this image was a cut shot into the corner and I didn't get the leave for an easier shot on the nine ball. The most bottom right cue ball is where I was left. I couldn't see the 9-ball directly so I had to go rail first with a little bit of top. The dashed line shows how the object ball traveled after the shot.
It was a tight window that I was going for but I wanted to then cut the 8-ball into the side pocket to which I missed this by about an inch. I could of tried to masse around the 6 ball but instead I decided to try to bank the 8 into the opposite side pocket. I setup with a little bottom left english to bring the cue ball back a little and put a small amount of right on the object ball. It was a nice shot to end the night on.
How would you have ran out from the start? If you are interested in how I created this diagram I used ChalkySticks to do it. They have a pad functionality on their site that seems to work pretty well.
