Here are a few interesting shots that may help you to pull a win (if you're brave enough) out of a seemingly hopeless situation. These all involve using the "nipples" or corner parts of the pockets.

Shot 3:

All of these shots involve aiming the center of the cueball directly at the point on the pocket.

IMO they are definately worth practicing, either to show off to your friends, or to use in a real situation, when you have no other choice. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Although all of these shots are possible, with my skill level, I would have to consider them very low percentage shots.
What is your success rate, in match situations?

The first shot, which is the one where you are corner-hooked, I have attempted it twice in a match, made the shot once, and the other time left the OB hanging in the hole. The other two shots were ones I learned from a friend, and have never used them in a match, but if I had no other choice, I would probably attempt them.
