I'm actually liking that 2-14-7 now that someone pointed it out. It's CB in hand so whitey can be placed so the possible kiss is avoided, and the hit of the 2 on the 14 is almost full, so I don't think at the speed we'd be hitting it that it would go far enough to be a problem.That's why I prefer the 12-15-10. I don't like the way that 2 is moving after the 2-14-7. Even if not a kiss it's going the wrong way imo.
This is the shot I saw also.I think I'd shoot the 9-3 combo because I can bring the cueball reliably to the other side of the table. I'll either make it and then shoot the 2 ball or the 15/10, or I'll leave the cue in a tough spot with balls even closer to my hole.
I was thinking that if the combo was missed(12-5-10) there would be a chance for a return safety off the 2ball. That's one of the reasons I liked the 2ball combination.Well, this wasn't one of Clyde's better shot-executions...he chose the 12-15-10 combination that many other posters also picked...but he missed making it - surprisingly by a fair amount...and lucky for me I was left with a window next to the 2ball, allowing me to play an effective safety and escape the trap........sorry, there's no follow up picture.
