Hard to say. I'm looking at the two stripes near each other on the left. I want to hit that combo right in the face, sending one ball uptable and the other to the rail and across to my side, following with the CB to the long rail. There are other options, but I like this one best, as it's about the only one that can show some positive result. From this picture, I'm not sure I can see the shot.

Can't tell from the pic if he could get around the black ball to 2 rail the brown ball.

If not, I like Androd's choice.

With Bugs down 4-0 in balls, I'm guessing he fired at something and this cross corner looks the most rewarding...
that would be a sweet little shot
seems like rods shot has small risk
easy to execute
i like it

I like Steve's shot move (but i'd be a lil worried) what if i bump into these two balls. Bugs is going to make this bank oh 80 -85 % of the time but what about when he does'nt? I dont want to break up that what im calling the 11 and 12. they dont go in Cornbread's pocket. Interested in the outcome I am. sorry i dont know how to use the diagram marking tools. So Steve's shot i like.

You win a cookie and then have to give it back:eek: :) . That's what Bugs chose to shoot but he scratched in the side off the 5 & 9 balls.

bugs problem was he didnt let the q balll go where steve wanted:)
Yeah, if Bugs only knew what I know about playing position off of banks, he wouldn't have scratched like that, right ? :D

The truth is, looking at that layout and that bank, who would ever pause and think, "I have to watch out for the scratch in the side?" In retrospect it was obviously there because it happened, but I never would have thought of it as a risk...

He just didn't hit it good. If he hits the banked ball good enough to make it, he goes on the path like TonyGreen showed. He glances off the hit ball at a shallower angle and doesn't scratch.
