In a more practical example, Diagram 10, the 3 ball in this case, is an easy side shot, but what if other balls are in the way and it is your only shot? Note also in this case, the 1, (ghost) ball, is aligned slightly off line so you won't scratch with a straight in kick shot -- something to keep in mind.

In this next example, Diagram 11, a similar slight off line shot is required to not scratch. Also note that the shot will require the CB to barely miss the side pocket. Sometimes a shot like this will require slight english, hitting before or after, if the kick point is on a pocket (a more advanced shot for sure!).
