If it wasnt a redcircle cuwball I would 1 rail the 9 and send whitey up to the head rail and back 2/3 diamonds along the rail.

With that redcircle I'm 2 railing the 8 and going 4 rails behind the 4. I belive thats the ball along the foot rail.

Carom off the 10 to land cue off of head rail on your side of 8 about 1 diamond away from 8). Preferably it bounces up a little to prevent you banking 8 to your hole.

One rail the eight ball. Strike the cue ball at about 8:30 .
The "last view" makes me want to shoot this shot. Even so, I think I'm going to put all my focus on the cue ball. 8 ball probably only moves a few feet and the cue ball goes to the second diamond on the long rail (right by the coin), using the 13 to protect the 9 ball.

For those of you who are wanting to leave me somewheres up-table - thank you...the 11ball carom off of the 2ball is laying perfect - for making it, and with the angle for the cueball to carom safely into the long rail behind the 9ball...and I am partial to that type of carom shot...:heh

Looks like it lays perfect to bank the 9 one rail and put the CB up table on the left side of the 8, ( by the piece of chalk ) If you make the 9 you might be able to do something with the 8, if you hang the 9 he will have to deal with it. Thinning the 9 and blocking all the banks looks risky, and banking the 8 leaves the carom Ghost likes, unless you get perfect with the CB like Cory suggests, where the angle to drop under the 9 isn't favorable. Soft roll on the 8 would also prevent the carom as the angle would not be there for the Ghost to put the CB behind the 9.

I liked Banking the 8 to leave the cue uptable on his side, until ghosts comment. Now I agree Jeff. I'm banking the 9 to make or leave it hanging.

I like banking that 8 ball where you overcut it with extreme inside english so that CB holds over near the left rail but with Ghost's comment, I too, shoot the 9 ball. The angle seems perfect to get the CB where I want it.

Bank the 8 one rail towards the 6 (left side of 6...) and put whitey on opponents 2nd diamond. Don't try banking the 8 ball one rail back to your hole, you'll lose whitey and you need to protect your 9-ball...unless you bank like Eddie Taylor and then it's a gimme.

I would bank the eight to center table between the side pockets and leave him in the corner pocket diagonal to the nine ball. In doing so, I first am trying to hook him from seeing the nine ball and secondly leaving him tough where there are kisses if he tries to safe me back.

I doubt that you would shoot that eleven ball if I miss the eight and leave it in front of my hole. To pocket the eleven ball off the two ball requires a precise hit because of the space between the two balls, and it could easily be missed. I don't believe that it would be worth the risk.

Frank....of course, if you left the eight in front of your hole, I would only shoot the carom if I was trapped, and had no better option...but, the odds are - in one try, most players aren't going to hit that long-distance-off-angle bank good enough to leave it in front of their hole (especially while loading up the cueball with max. inside english as you said you would do) - and that's what I'm talking about.
