Now on to other diagrams (5 thru 8); the 6 step process is repeated below; only the ball positions change as do the shots. Some of them are easy some are very difficult.

Step1: Draw a straight line from the center of the CB to the cushion you intend to bank from. (Line A)
Step 2: Draw a line between the object pocket through the object ball and place a "ghost ball" directly on that line just behind the object ball
Step 3: Now draw a line from the center of the ghost ball to the line A cushion point.
Step 4: Now draw a line from the center of the ghost ball parallel to line A to the same banking cushion as the A line is pointing to.
Step 5: Now draw a line from the center of the CB to the point where the blue line D meets the cushion.
Step 6: Where Line B and C intersect, (the X) draw a line parallel to line A and D to the same cushion; here shown as the Black line.

Note in Diagram 9 below, the further down the CB is the more to the left of the kick contact point, conversely the further up the CB the more to the right the contact point will be. This information is useful for future reference so you remember basic shot position dynamics.
