not sure what you mean on this KYB...

I understand not wanting to shoot at a ball unless it can win you the game but I am trying to figure out how you are playing the safety..

thanks!
Cb stays below the 5 ball, first diamond by the pocket on the side rail.

You can win the game from here. WWYD to redeem yourself after being up 6-0 and you playing sloppy enough to let him crawl back to a 6-6 tie?
Personally, I am not shooting at my hole in this spot. The cb control off the 14 ball bank is to questionable for my liking.

Well, I ended up playing the reverse-English straight-back that Tom demonstrated in his video. However, I stroked it at pocket speed with lots of left English and maybe a tip below center with the intention of killing and hiding the CB behind those two balls. Luckily, I got position on the 2. The tables at 'Pool Table Magic' in Hartford, CT are ideal for straight pool, given their generous pockets. At the speed I played the 2, there was very little chance it wasn't gonna fall.

I was glad that match was over because I was playing as if I was walking on eggshells, and not staying down on some shots. But somehow I caught a stroke in my next two matches and beat Bob Madenjian (superb straight pool player) and Ike Runnels. In my fourth match, I dogged a ball to tie Alex Pagulayan at 3-3. That was a great experience for me, especially since I hardly ever go anywhere to play (of fear of running into Mitch :D).

Nice out!

Well apparently we think alike since we keep choosing similar shots. But obviously you must think about me a lot since you mention me in every other post lol. I'm flattered. :) But you are way too strong for me so go pick on someone your own speed lol.
