It is amazing how my crystal clear bank pool logic and strategy doesnt penetrate that slate you have for a noggin. By disputing every solution and theory that I propose,all you are doing is leading players trying to learn bank strategy away from the correct path. And lets face it, there is no question in my or many other peoples minds who is the foremost authority on how to play bank pool. When I say something about bank pool, the Filipinos write it down! It is only on this site, and you in particular, find the time to challenge every nugget I release. Jeez!Reyes shot the right shot imo. Had Reyes positioned the cue ball nearer the diamond on the rail Skyler would of been in trouble. Sometimes we have to gamble when the prize is more than our opponent can afford to pay. Reyes shot a shot that he could execute at a high percentage and hit it a little bad but still has a legitimate chance of winning the game.
Trying to hang the 7ball from the position Reyes would be shooting from is a very low % shot and most likely would leave Skyler in a position to make a return shot that would force Reyes to pocket a ball. Then Reyes would be in an unenviable situation of having to deal with Skyler "free popping" at the loose ball while the 2ball remains hanging. Which is exactly what he can't afford to have happen. Like I said, "sometimes you have to gamble, especially if the reward is something your opponent can't afford to pay" And for that reason alone Reyes shot a very viable shot.
Hanging the ball is low percentage? Are you serious?
First off, you dont have to even hang the ball, just push it close to the pocket where there is no bank shot available. And if Skylar does somehow force Efren to pocket a ball by hanging the ball deep into the pocket, if he was playing me he would stand a very good chance of getting his ass corner hooked! Playing safe off of a ball in the pocket is my long suit, and just requires patience, which apparently you are a little short of lately.
You have already just about got me to quit the 1pkt WWYD's. It aint gonna hurt me to stop posting in the bank pool WWYD's because I already know what to do. I aint the one that needs to learn what to do in these situations.
"Knock off the ball in the corner and give Sklylar a straight bank shot 2 ft away from the cue ball to win the game," you call that putting him in trouble?
I can only assume that you are just kidding. Really. But please confess to such as you are only misleading those that are taking you serious. :lol
