Kicking To The Corner

For the following kicks the diamonds along the long rails are 1, 1 ½ , 2, 2 ½, 3, 3 ½, 4, 4 ½ , 5, 5 ½ , 6, 6 ½ , 7, 7 ½, and 8.

In the WEI diagrams we are shooting from left to right, to kick to the lower right corner. Therefore, the diamonds are assigned the following numbers from right to left in this manner:

The first diamond down from the right corner pocket, along both long rails is #1, the midpoint between #1 and the next diamond down is #1 ½ , next comes #2, 2 ½ , 3, 3 ½, #4 is an imaginary diamond in line with all the others smack in the middle of the side pocket, next is #4 ½ (midway between # 4 and the next actual diamond marking which is #5), then #5 ½, #6, # 6 ½ , #7, 7 ½, and finally # 8 ( smack in the middle of the left corner pockets)

(If you are shooting from right to left count the diamonds from left to right.)

In this system shoot TO not THRU the diamond. (IOW, aim for the point on the nose of the cushion which corresponds to the diamond of reference / aim).

Again I am assuming that you have at least some modicum of experience and can adjust for the conditions on the table with speed, English, follow, draw or combination thereof.

OK, here we go:

Coming out of diamond #5 aim to #2 ½ on the opposing long rail, center ball, no english, medium speed:

START( %Ar8Z5%PV9X6%Uc8D1%VU2[3%Yr5Y7%Zd2C4
)END

Coming out of # 6 aim to # 3 ½ , with a tip of follow and ½ tip of running english, medium speed:
START( %Ar3Z3%PO5Z1%U^3D2%VO0Z9%Yq2Y1%Z^8C4%eB9a2 )END

Coming out of # 7 aim to # 4 ½, with a tip of follow and a tip of running english, just a touch under medium speed:

START( %Ar0Z2%PI9Y2%UV6D3%VH7[2%Yp6Y1%ZW3C3%eC1a2 )END

Coming out of # 8 aim to # 5 ½, with a tip of follow and 1 ½ tips of running english, medium-soft speed
START( %Ar2Z6%PD7Z2%UQ0D4%VE2Y4%Yp8Y8%ZQ8C5%eC5a2 )END
