I mentioned earlier that the other day I talked to a guy who gives lessons at C&C.  We were kinda joking around and he said, if you finding yourself like this in an 8-ball situation, in this instance, I say go for it:

Then he shot this:

Now, I’m assuming that was his cue position and the path is just a rough guess based on my memory. He missed the first try, but he made it the 2nd attempt.  I just stood there and laughed – someone across the hall called out “Who is that guy?!” (another regular, joining in on the fun)

I did not try it as I know I don’t have the stroke to transfer the required english and power to the ball.  But, rest assured, I will try this someday. 🙂
