View Full Version : One Pocket Shot
Here is a shot i've gotten stuck with all to many times in 1p, so i started teaching my self to make. now that i know how to make this shot i would like to know how you guys would play this shot.
You cannot kick because you dont have the pocket where the ob & cb are sitting, you have the other pocket.

This is a VERY difficult shot...mostly because it's invisible! ROTFLMAO!

I think someone is disrespecting you by stealing your pic before it gets here.---Smitty

I make that shot all the time, it's just that nobody ever sees it.

C'mon Scott, thats the old "CAMO SHOT"...you never see it thus you cant shoot it!!.

One Pocket shot of the DAY
You have pocket B and you want to cross bank the 8 ball into your pocket. 8 ball is frozen on the long rail with its pocket side edge next to the point of that pocket. The cue ball in in line with the spot.
You want to hit the 8 ball as thin, but on the center of the ball like you were banking it straight across (medium speed)
When you make this shot, the cue ball will bank into the sides of the corner pocket and almost follow the 8 into your pocket.
WEI Table (http://endeavor.med.nyu.edu/~wei/pool/pooltable2.html)
very nice theory tom, but that did'nt work for me, and it is'nt a sure shot. Now here's how i shot this shot and after a lil practice i can now make it everytime.
seeing as how the cb & ob are extremely close together, if i do what you were saying tom, i have a 50/50 chance of making it, but if i use the ghost ball techniques with some inside english, the cb will contact the rail first with the english transfering to the ob and helping the ob stick to the rail while riding to the pocket. it works everytime, just dont stroke hard or soft, use a medium stroke while hitting the cb at 3-o'clock center and you'll be amazed at the results.
You never diagramed the shot in your original post. Is what Tom set up the same exact shot? Whats going on? LOL
yo, am very sorry, i thought that i did post the diagram, i must have been more tired than i thought i was. but here is the shot.
It depends on the score or if that is the only ball on the table. Last ball I cut it in with center right hitting rail first to control c/b speed. It will go fairly easy from there if it stays in the track. Sometimes we shoot this shot from here with right english. Difficult, but I've made it many times.
Maybe this way if its the last ball or if this was the only ball left at the foot end of the table.
WEI? why not? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif (http://endeavor.med.nyu.edu/~wei/pool/pooltable2.html)
What are you smokin /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif If you can shoot it hard enough is one thing. If you miss it leaves a bank = a sell out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif
samething your smoking Crack head mother f err /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif lol
I wonder about that the speed, I have to set it up on a table.
but i think this is the way i would go with maybe not so much right Side, hard for me to use less side, 3C habit /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Since the diagram shows 14 balls in the rack I will assume that this is a beginning game shot. If you make the shot you have to let go of the CB to generate enough speed to send it across the table. So if it goes in what are you going to do next and if it doesn't will you leave a bank or a clear?
If it were me, I would cut the ball towards my pocket but hit it slightly full into the rail with right hand english. Hopefully, I could push the OB over near my pocket and stick the CB on the rack. This puts the pressure on your opponent and may force an error, or lead up to one.
If that's to hard to do then I would clear the ball and stick the CB on the back of the rack.
