There are three practice shots here:

In the first one, the CB is at position A and you make the the 1-ball in pocket C.

In the second, the CB is at position B and you make the 1-ball in pocket C.

In the third, the CB is at position B and you make the 2-ball in pocket C.

Shots like these come up often in my 9-Ball games--usually when my opponent tries to play a long safety and fails to hide the OB. Shots of these kinds aren't gimmies for players at my level, so I practice them. The shot at the 1-ball from position B is kind of interesting; on the 9-ft GCIIs where I practice, the point of aim is the edge of the OB (or the center of the diamond). Very handy!

Hope this is of interest to some of my fellow sufferers.

Now that it's to late to edit my post, I realize that I should have written "The point of aim for the shot at the one-ball from position B is close to the diamond, which is handy." --AS
