Make This Shot

Place a bridge across the first diamond. A wall of eight balls is placed near the side pocket. The first object ball is frozen to the rail, about a half diamond from the corner pocket. The cue ball is one diamond away from the long rail. It can be in a straight line with the first object ball or a bit closer to the bridge.

Finding a consistent setup and aim point for the cue ball is critical. Catch the first object ball just less than full. Apply follow and maybe very little left english. Sometimes, a level stroke will do it, but it's easier with a tiny bit of elevation. Don't hit it too hard either. See how many balls you can get in the wall and still make the shot.
