June 2015: 2015 Derby City Classic Bank Pool Ring Game
Player: John Morra
Perhaps not the most creative shot to earn distinction as a "Stroke of Genius," this effort made up for geometric bluntness with flawless execution. The 2015 Derby City Classic's bank pool ring game wasn't entirely dismissive of kiss shots, but it demanded exceptional circumstances. But this being banks, object balls have a tendency to get stuck hanging in pocket jaws, making a clean bank a tricky if not impossible task. One- and two-rail kicks were no good, but any shot that hit a trifecta of rails or more would be allowed.
