This is a position you commonly find yourself in.  Both the cue ball and the object ball are frozen to the rail, yet you need to create an angle, along with some english to get yourself to the other end of the table.  In this shot, high right hand english is needed (pictured at right).  Use a firm stroke and hit into the object ball near the rail.  Even though there will be a lot of english on the cue ball, the object ball will still shoot straight into the corner pocket.  Once the cue ball strikes the object ball, the high right english will spin the ball into the near rail then down the rest of the table.  The firmness of this shot depends on what type of cloth you are using.  In this video I was using Simonis 760 cloth.
