Poor Man's Power Draw

The new 8-ball league season is a few weeks old and I'm sporting a 3-1 record right now. My latest match was a doozy going hill-hill in a race to 5. It even included a cue throwing incident (my opponent, not me) which made it all the more entertaining for the spectators. It was a good match all the way through though, but the winning out went something like this:

The first shot was reminiscent of the Power Draw shot, but just moved back a little. I knew it was going to come off the other long rail then and the spin would kill it. I came up a bit higher than I wanted, but it got the job done. The rest of the run was mostly academic, just as long as I didn't over power the 10 ball.
