Make This Shot

I start with the 3 ball on the 2 x 1.5 diamond intersection. I build up the rack around it so that the middle of the right edge comes directly up from the front of the object ball. Don't forget to hang the ball in the corner pocket.

I place the cue ball just outside the back edge of the rack. It's aligned such that the CB-3 line goes to 1-3/4 diamond on the short rail. I aim for a 3/4 ball hit with a modest jump stroke and a tip of top. You can give yourself more leeway on the bank by using a helper triangle like I did (but didn't hit).
