Some will cut the 8 into the 9 and have the CB come straight back and hit the 7, but for me, I like shooting the 7/10 combo, drawing back to the log rail and making sure the stack has the 10 covered. Those strange angle combos are in my wheelhouse or at least I enjoy playing them. :)

Another real good version of my shot is to cut the 7 a little more and into the side of the 15 and let it carom into the 10. This will give you a better angle to roll the CB down on the foot rail behind the 8, could be lethal...


EDIT - since now we are shooting at the other pocket, it looks like the shot is there, but if so I like loading up a lot of LHE and raiding the cue maybe 30 degrees to get a slight masse (if the masse is needed), shoot to his long rail and kick the 3 towards the 8 / towards my hole. The 15 doesnt go in his hole so I dont think you can sell out and could be pretty effective

I'm shooting the 7-15-10 combo trying to bring the cueball off the bottom rail back behind the stack. Playing it off the 15 looks like it's a pocket hanger at least..

I dont mess with the stack. Leaving whitey down there can leave a cross bank.

If the 3 rail kick (take a scratch) is not there, I skim off the 13 (striped ball in the kitchen) and leave him straight in on the 3. Daring him to shoot.

For more adventurous minds I might 2 rail the 13 coming off the right side and whitey going 2 rails near my opponents hole (shoot with spin to avoid the kiss).
This shot should be in your armory.

Two answers (depending on table). Diamond as shown I'm confident I can spin the rock close to the side pocket and into the stack.

The kick ticky on the three is the shot. Don't baby it. Simple to figure shots like this and the cue ball goes almost straight up the side rail and safe.

cant leave him down table so. way too many banks and him getting you in a pickle.

so

one rail the 11 back towards your hole.

or two rail it if you can hold the cue ball down on the rail

or one rail the 11 into the 3 ball hard and kick both over your way and a bunch of other balls. that is the risky high reward easy cue ball safe shot. and likely my shot.

Ghost said he had a senior moment. I must be having one also because you’re shooting at the wrong hole?

I am banking the 11 STRAIGHT BACK! Lol! I am loading the cb up with left and letting the cb float across the end rail towards the corner pocket. Praying that he shoots at the 3 ball!

Bank the 11 straight into the 13, leave the cue on the end rail. You should get the 11 near your pocket, daring him to shoot at the three. If he shoots the three, god bless him. If he clears the 11, you bank the six. The key is you don't want to lose your position. Keeping him on the end rail forces him to either shoot at the three or fall further behind in position to an eventual crisis point. I don't want to bank the 11 at my hole, because that's too tough and I might lose my cue ball. I can bank it into the 13, spin to the side rail and let whitey die on the head rail. Nobody really wants to shoot the three from there.

The angle of the two rail on the 11 and the tracking of the cue ball looks perfectly symmetrical, which means there is a potential kiss. Not to mention he gets to bank the 11 unless I hit it perfectly. Shoot it five times and let me know how it comes out.

Chess, not checkers.
