If you've tried your hand at pool for even an hour you should be able to make this pool trick shot. Start with the cue ball and object ball as in Figure 1.

Bank the striped billiard ball up the long rail and back at medium speed, as pictured toward Pocket "A".

The lines in my diagrams never touch the rails of the table as indicating the path for the bottom of each ball where it touches the table. The edge of the striped ball will hit the rail.

If it looks like you may miss the lower right corner pocket, don't worry...
