I'd shoot the three ball because I'm comfortable with the shot.
The fourteen is also OK and you might get a shot to win if it goes. Just a little tougher for me to handle.

kick the orange ball back to your pocket and the ball on the rail will protect you from scratching. and you can get behind the ball on the long rail or the 14 ball and maybe snooker him.

That's what looks good to me.

I like banking the 3 straight back, as long as the scratch cross-corner isn't on. I don't like the kick on the 4 ball, because unless it hangs in the hole it leaves a potential bank on the 10 or the 3 (and Benny will shoot at anything;)). If right english is necessary for the kick then there's a risk of leaving a shot straight in on the 10.

The cautious play would be to come thin off the 4, and bring whitey back down table. But I doubt that Shane would take that option...:cool:

Not to be critical, but you guys should think about putting up some shots where the guy just totally bunts a nit safety now and again to keep us on our toes. :) I am always looking for some circus shot in these threads :heh

I would just bump that 4 half ball, careful to not pocket the combo and pull over toward the the goose's side rail. If I really felt like shooting though, the way it looks I would bank the 10 and billiard the 9.

Im banking the 3 ball.. not so much to make it but instead to have a better hot the next time im at the table after Benny moves the 3 ball. So im purposely over cutting the bank a little so it sits at about the first diamond on the end rail by my pocket. Im going to make sure it dont sit by the side rail. Not every shot or inning can be an attempt at pocketing a ball, sometimes you have to shoot a shot that will give you a better attempt your next time at the table

Shane attempted to bank the 10 (or is it the 12?) and scratched.

With one to spot up, leaving Benny ball in hand from here.

Benny drilled the spot shot but then hit the 10 too hard and SVB eventually got out.

A little tougher for SVB also.
