I think you move the nine to his pocket if you do that or the bottom ball kisses over off the nine, you would have to hit it paper thin not to be taking a big chance.dont you skim off the 10/15 open them up and leave him back near his pocket????
That's my choice.thin the 10 ball and 2 rail the cue ball to freeze on the back rail
You see the 9 will go towards your opponents pocket?That's my choice.
But if you want your opponent to raise the bet.... Observe that the two balls are frozen. Play into the front one from there with draw and it banks to your pocket. The other two balls end up on the head rail for the safe.
OK, who stole or hacked into Mike's avatar. Can I borrow the Ghost's picture of LSD here ?Easy. Slam the full front left side of the 10 ball and draw back off of the side rail to about where the CB started from. 15 ball goes 4 rails toward your hole, 9 ball goes 2 rail to your side of the table and the 10 ball stuns over toward your pocket. Simple and safe...
They called me "crazy" because I know from experiance shooting like this will 2 rail the 10 back to the opponents side and the 9 will 2 rail down to a almost straight in shot for my opponent. In other words it's no good.Easy. Slam the full front left side of the 10 ball and draw back off of the side rail to about where the CB started from. 15 ball goes 4 rails toward your hole, 9 ball goes 2 rail to your side of the table and the 10 ball stuns over toward your pocket. Simple and safe...
I would also take the intentional foul and roll the cue ball to the middle of the head rail where his sight line would only be able to see the left side of the 9-ball. From that position I doubt if my opponent would shoot any shot other than an intentional foul. If he takes the intentional foul, it was an eye for an eye, we both need three balls to win. As "Billy Jackets" posted, "...then there are 4 balls on the spot and I shoot the 2 rail out of the corner kick then."I would take an intentional and leave everything as it is, I don't like kicking at the 9 or the 2 balls on the spot. not worth taking the chance on for me.
If he takes an intentional back , then there are 4 balls on the spot and I shoot the 2 rail out of the corner kick then.
Any pretty good player is going to know this , so after I take my intentional , what will he do?
Thin the 10 on the left side to go two rails to leave it (CB) near where it started.Playing even. You both need 2. Your shot . You have top right pocket where the chalk is.
Thanks to all who responded and yeah I sure could have posted better pics. These are the type pics I complain about so shame on me.It's good to see Dr. Bill back in the mix. The pictures could be a little better but with what we have I don't see the two rail kick being the best shot available. It looks like you could throw the spotted balls such that the back ball doesn't hit the nine ball or only skins it slightly if you hit the left side to the top ball spotted. It appears a standard safety off the left side of the top ball and let the cueball go to the side rail and down to the bottom rail.
