Would you have risked one of the offensive shots ( the 1 or the 12 ) along with the 6 ball take out, or shot some version of Tony's shot? I know it's just pure speculation but I'm curious how you would have sized up the shot had it been your turn instead of Tony's.
And, if you don't mind, what did you do from where Tony left you here?
Jeff...If I was playing somebody where I felt I had the best of it, and who I could for sure out-move - then definitely I would have also played a conservative shot off of the 6ball.....but on the other hand, if I was playing somebody like Efren or Scott, I might very well choose to shoot the 1ball here...and if I did do that, what I believe in, and would do - is concentrate fully on making the 1ball and forget about the 6ball - I believe that when you try and do two things at once (unless you have a 100% natural angle to do the second thing, so that you don't have to divide your focus), you will lose a little of your all-important ball-pocketing probability.
