i didn't realize you were that big bill. bet you were an absolute monster wearing skates!I'm 6'6'' that shot's in my comfort zone. Wish I'd a picked up this game in my youth, I'm finding out....having a long reach is a big advantage in this game, even more so than rotation games.
The issue is here control, a bridge and/or cue extension will be needed by Bartram and he loses feel/accuracy on the shot. This is one of those times you have to find a solution that can be reached, Bartram has several options but the one he chooses should be the one he KNOWS he can execute.I know it has already been mentioned, but I believe I would have been bumping softly into the 14 by going long rail first. I would be hoping to move the 14 just a little further from the pocket, knowing Corey is going to skim the 14 and he will be leaving me a lot further away on his shot. So I want to move it as much as I can without scratching like a 1/2 ball or so.
But seeing Androd's shot, his looks better than mine lol.
Three rail that 14 out of there and draw to the three ball and spin it in to his pocket.
Oh, wait a minute I thought it was Rafael shooting this. Never mind.
He should have used the bridge, he's reaching way too far for such a demanding shot.Bartram decided to kick gently behind the 14. In his overstretched position and with an extension on his cue he lost the feel for the shot and fouled. It was his last shot of the match.
