CFB has a 1-0 lead in the ball count and it's his shot. What would you do?

P.S. Cueball is next to the 5 ball.

3 rail the 14 and 3 rail the cue ball back down around to hide it somewhere.

Free shot

Free shot

Being 6'6'', I'm cuttin' it in, hangin' it at worst. Bottom of rack won't be inplay on the overcut. Picture of the overhead camera shot, the shot looks realistic, the other camera angle with the player behind the shot looks twice as hard. The speed needed to make this ball, will put me on my opponents table side, be nice ta have that offensive bank position.

up and back

up and back

shoot the 13 ? up table to come back near my pocket - strike cue ball at 8 o clock and bring cue around three rails to leave in stack hopefully next to one ball.

Me too, but I thought it was the 11.

Maybe it is the 11. Had in mind almost same as Mr. Brumback but not sure about placing cue between 10 & 3. May not have his skills.

I saw this immediately but figured I probably better stay away from that. Who do I think I am, John B? :)

I would probably try to thin the 15 and get behind the stack like others suggested but this bank works great if you can get the CB behind the stack (even if you don't make the 3 ball bank combo).

We mortals don't need to be thinking about making a ball... it pushes stuff in a good direction and puts whitey someplace good as long as the speed and spin are approximately right. Wish I could get to my table to shoot it a few times exactly as it lays, but I've played many similar and this one looks like a no-brainer. (Dave Maddux first showed me this shot and it comes up quite a bit.)

edit: Speaking of Dave Maddux, there's one of the great guys in pool. Has anyone talked to him lately?

For *me*, it looks like the hit on the object ball might be a little too thick to get that action.

One could also 3-rail the 14 with a ton of draw and get the cue ball 2 rails towards the 3/10. I don't think the 7 is in the way.

If you are talking about Dave Maddux from Atlanta you are correct....Great guy! I used to play Dave a sets of 9 ball and 1P at Mr.Cues. Something happened about 6 months ago and Dave chose to play elsewhere. Too bad, I always enjoy his company.

Very good Fish, you win a cookie:).

John banked the 13 back into the 7 and handled the cueball perfectly.
