My shot --- the ball score is 3-1, I'm ahead, Ghost going to 9, Pat going to 7 --- my pocket is at the bottom right - I have several excellent choices.....wwyd?

Well john picked a solid defensive choice, and he hit it well: banking the into the 12, taking it away from my pocket and opening up the on his side...the went into a pocket and a ball was spotted so here's how it ended up >>>


Well, like a few of you guys also liked, Alex chose to come off the 5, into the long rail, and then freeze to the 8...but unfortunately (for him that is) he hit it 1/4" too soft and just-barely left me a nice straight back bank, with natural position to get out...here's how it turned out >>>

I set it up and banked the two to my hole and left the cue ball a foot off the center of the headrail.

I am banking the 12 in my hole and coming off with left hand English to clip the 4 and open those balls to my hole.

2 rail the 12 into the 8 hard and follow up to his hole. that will send balls over your way.

Me and Whitey - yep, that's the shot. Send Jojo uptable without touching those two balls lying together.

I like the 12 bank too, but a devilishly effective and no risk shot is to nudge the 13 over towards your pocket and freeze the cue ball against the others leaving an open ball and no good rejoinder.

I am going all out to bank the twelve with inside to miss cluster in front of his pocket and come two rails back down to run out

Rejoinder is law speak.

I would bank the 12 but I want my cue ball to hit the 8. From there the ten with my que ball running into the crowd.

Lot's of good shots.

But I want to welcome the Ghost back, I missed your WWYDs!

Ghost's photos are always so nice and clear. I can't get mine to come out that sharp. I'm usually copying from a DVD, but they're never that crisp, although they look clean on the DVDs themselves.

If the shooter were to roll the 13 to the rail, leaving the CB on the 15, that puts the opponent into a pretty tough trap.
