I got into this situation after one of my break shots didn't come out so good. The fellow I was playing with showed me this shot. The cue ball was frozen to the back of the cluster. The 10 ball was straight across about a quarter inch away. The 10 ball was not frozen. I was looking at maybe throwing the ball with spin and getting a cross corner bank but it didn't look like it would pass the 9 ball.

Here's the shot he showed me. Elevate the cue about 45 degrees and hit low left. Shoot toward the one ball. The cue ball smashes into the rack then the english takes and pulls it into the back of the 10 ball which slowly goes straight into the corner.

Worked like a charm. 10 ball went straight in and it busted the whole rack wide open. I got a run of 38 off it. Darndest thing I ever saw. I always believed that there was a lot of shots and "secret knowledge" in the game of straight pool. I try to play every 14.1 old timer I can find every chance I get. Once their gone I think that many things will be lost.

Perhaps it doesn't really come through with the Wei table, but it looks like you would have to be on crack to shoot that shot.

Thats begging to be called on a foul. I suppose though your opponent didn't think so, so it was ok, this time.

When I input your wei code, the cueball isn't frozen to the cluster. Also, from that setup, it looks like it's the 11 that goes into the lower left corner. It's frozen to the other ball such that it's aimed pretty dead.

OK, here's a simplified setup.

It's hard to get it exact with the wei table. The one ball isn't dead at the start of the shot. I think what's happening is it's forcing the one ball dead off the corner ball.

When I remove the corner ball the shot won't go the same way. I'll get the guy to show me some more about it. I don't understand it well enough. He is able to show me exactly where to aim to make them.

OK, I see it now - you're playing a simple carom off the 11 to slide the 10 into the upper right corner; meanwhile the 11 spreads the pack.

Chopstick,its kind of hard to tell on the table,but it looks like a clean shot at the one ball in the corner.

Where would the foul part come in?

Yea, I know it's hard to describe even with the wei table. The ball is just about even with the cueball. There's no way to get an angle to shoot it the corner, bank it or play a carom. Something about the english and the angle of the aim makes it dead. I'll try to get more information.
