There is an aggressive shot here that isn't too difficult to pull off, but it's on the risky side. Stun draw up table off the 6 playing the carom. If you make it you'll have a better take out shot for his 2 near his pocket, hang it and he's got to deal with it on his turn.

I looked at this shot,it's makeable but not with draw, it'll force the 1st OB forward.

If your movin' whitey to the head rail, this is NOT a stun shot more like a slight power draw shot. With that much overspin applied to the object ball, it could bank two rails to you opponents side. Draw, this carom/make shot is not possible with the current carom angle off the 10.

A lot of inside will spin whitey up table also, but not sure how far since it will lose a lot of energy. Scott shoots these shots a lot, not sure if he'd shoot this one however.

This is one I'll have to set up and experiment with.

You have to be perfect on your setup and I don't know whether it's going to be possible from the pics. Really close going between 5 and 11, and the angle isn't far from CB straight in the pocket. Looks a lot better in one pic than in another here. It's my first choice if it's workable.

Edit: Doh! I was talking about the wrong shot.

Too scary for me to shoot where I am possibly driving a few balls towards his pocket. I appreciate the creativity but a little too aggressive for me in this instance ;)

It's not for the timid for sure! Danny D could tell us how to hit it, wish he would jump on 1p.org for these wwyd's.

DD is overly optimistic regarding risk-reward ratios. IMO he confidently recommends shots that are possible but are not sensible. OK as long as he has Billy beside him to cool his jets. Everybody else defers to him too much.

The ball does go if obj. ball hit with 12 o'clock high follow with a Hard hit, struck obj. ball draws of course.

From here it looks like I can get between the 13 and 5 -- with a nearly full hit on the 13 -- and go to the bottom rail (and back up under the 9 if I'm lucky.)

If it doesn't look good at the table I'd just drag off the 1, trying to go behind the 9.
Fred got between the 13 and 5 but he could only roll the cueball.

He left it here for Barney:

Barney took full advantage of his very good break and put Fred in ever-increasing trouble until Barney finally made a small error in the leave. That small error will be the subject of my next Fred/Barney thread:).

Instead of playing a rolling carom, I was thinking to hit 13 much fuller and force through it and down, but I'd better not get the angle Fred got.... scratch city :eek:
