Make This Shot

On this shot, I like the cue ball about 1 1/2 diamonds away from the corner pocket near the end rail. Then I place the rack around it and setup the hanging ball.

I aim at the second diamond up the long rail and hit this with a jump-masse stroke at about 5:30. For a jump-masse stroke, you only need about 75-80 degrees of elevation and hit close to the edge on the cue ball. Hit it hard to get the jump and juice it up with spin.
