I would bank the eight ball into the balls on the bottom rail and hold the CB around the second diamond on the side rail using the cluster around the spot as blockers. Could easily push balls to my hole, maybe even make a ball.:)

That could work, Or

Cut the 15 into the rt side of the 14 sending the 15 your way. QB to the long rail/short rail and try to snug it to the 7

I like bankin' the eleven and hide behind the eight. Might catch the fourteen ball at the foot rail and lay the eleven by or in the hole, then shoot the eight.

You took my answer! There's a few ways to sell out a return bank on this choice, but it seems well worth the risk.

There's a white flag just asking to be shot at here - who has a blue-laser mouse, and want's to volunteer?...:)...

The white flag = shooting the 9ball 2 rails-up and down and into your pocket, whilst drawing over a little to shape up on the 10 and 14, and you run out...:eek:...:heh

- Specter

PS, The only reason that I wouldn't shoot and make it, is because I wouldn't want to kill my action

I'd bank the 8 at the 14 and let the CB roll to the foot rail.

This is the shot that I like also John. Just have to really focus on laying the cue on the rail behind the seven. Don't give up on it so fast 😊.

How's this for a red flag... Two rail the 13 to my hole and draw the cue ball in between the six and 11 to the side rail underneath the eight.

I was looking at it but, it's "too cute for my blood." Maybe if I played 3c like you and had supreme confidence with CB control it would look more appetizing.

Let's not get crazy lol. If I had "supreme confidence" I wouldn't have called it a red flag :) .

Great minds think alike comes to mind. Sounds like we need to get together and play this out. You could use it as a "training exercise" for the DCC, especially if you gonna face Smarty Mitch there. I could provide untold and valuable insights into his twisted mind.;):p:lol:D

Nope. If you're banking the 6, you bring the cue back and go 3 rails to leave it by your opponents pocket for shape silly.

Only problem is you leave a jump-masse kick combination bank on the 1-7. Ghost is deadly on those. :p

A friend of mine says Thomas Harris, author of Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal etc. would have to have a sick twisted mind to create the character of Hannibal Lecter.

These insights of yours into Mitch's mind ........... :confused:
