I freeze the cue ball with the object ball, in this case the 3 ball, so they split the first diamond from the side pocket
This is another shot that will tell you if you're putting unintentional spin on the ball when you jump. I definitely have some issues with it. Otherwise, I aim across at the other side pocket, just past the near point. Figure this out first so the object ball will roll up and stop in front of the side pocket. Then work on speed and spin to get the cue ball to come back where it needs to.
This is an advanced version of the shot Christopher Walken and Mars Callahan made in Poolhall Junkies.
