I've tried posting this a few times, but if it didn't post before, here it is again. Thought the 3-Cushion enthusiasts might like this shot. It was actually made on a pool table. I realize that an inside english shot off the red might be possible, but it looks like a kiss to me. I know very little about 3-C, and was just horsing around with a non-player friend.. 3-C players: comments welcome..

The way you have it diagrammed is a nice shot. The difficulty with it is that if you are a quarter inch off on the first rail or catch the yellow too full(or on the wrong side), it doesn't go. That makes it a "1-way" shot, either you make it or you don't. The conventional shot for that leave is the 5 railer

The yellow is far enough down the table that the kiss doesn't come into play. If you are short, it still hits

START(
%Bg6O6%Cp5F7%Ei4Y3%G^7D8%Hs3Y6%Io7[1%Jj4X9%Kg6O6%UD1R9%V]4D1
%WH4Z2%XC4S3%Yo6D0%ZI0[0%[s0E8%\p2D0%]q8F6%^s2F3%eC6a2
)END

and if you are long it still hits.

)END

To miss the ball (on that shot) would require you to be EXTREMELY unlucky. Note that I am thinning the yellow although it doesn't show very well. You don't want to hit the yellow so it flies all over the place, let your english take the shot where it needs to go.

Your shot is definitely a valid shot, and a good one if you make it. Personally I try to go with the shot that has the greatest chance of making the billiard even if I screw it up.
