(For those who couldn't see the Wei table posting, the shot was to bank the "second head ball" cross-side at straight pool.)

This is a standard dead shot at straight pool, usually shot from a 14-ball rack. The balls have to be racked right and the table has to have fairly sticky cloth. For other dead balls out of a full rack, see one of Robert Byrne's books. I don't remember if it is in "Standard" or "Advanced," but he lists a bunch of them.

Another standard dead ball from a full rack is either of the bottom corner balls to go cross-side. Just hit as much of them as you can from about the center of the foot rail. Some side spin on the cue ball may help.

Follow the link, and you will see a "help" link at the bottom-left on the page. You might want to bookmark the page as well (Add to Favorite. . .) .

The short instruction is: Copy the "gibberish", and use the "Paste" button with the WEI table.

If you want to diagram something, start with a fresh table. Click and drag the balls, arrows, and lables where you want, and click on "Copy". When you paste this into a post, you will see the gibberish again.

You can drag balls completely off the table, to remove them, but if you need more than is left, you will have to start over.
