Willie Jopling – One Pocket Proposition
If you can set this shot up and tap it into the table before your mark shows up this makes a good One Pocket proposition. Freeze the 2 and 5 balls together as you see them in this diagram. The 2 ball is near the foot-rail a ball or two beyond the center of table on your opponents side. The 2 and 5 are aimed directly towards the first diamond on the long rail on your opponentâ€™s side of the table.
To make the shot place the cueball about where indicated and hit the 2 ball full in the face hard enough to make the 5 ball bank three rails. If the 5 comes short of your pocket move everything closer to the foot rail. Keep adjusting this one until you make it.
