V-Man,I will kick off the foot rail into the 2 ball, sending the cb from there to the long rail on Ike's side. Easy as rice krispies - snack, popple, crap! Much better than what Earl is about to do. :heh
if the lane is open i would shoot steves shotI want to kick and leave him on/under/behind the 10. I'm not convinced there is enough room betwen the balls to do that off the long rail, but if there is then I will go that way. If not, then 2-3 rails off the head rail. Even if I foul that looks like the best place to leave the cb, especially if I can nuzzle it under the 10.
I would rate that as the most powerful shot, but also the one that requires the most execution.I would shoot at the 1 ball and draw the cue ball down near his pocket.
Not a difficult shot for a 9 ball player like Earl.
i know you wouldI think he needs to do something simple here. I like the soft kick on the 10 (I know he wont do that though lol).
I also kinda like just hitting the one and pulling up on the rail a diamond. I'd shoot the kick above though.
The 10 ball is a huge threat. If you JUST kick 1 or 3 rails behind it or you JUST draw down behind it, Ike is going to put you somewhere on the table in a bad spot and that dangerous 10 ball will still be there giving you problems. I think you have to either move the 10 ball or come up with a better solution than just getting behind it. Keith
i dont see how you could "kick with pace" from this cue ball position and be confident to control the cue ball,I would be inclined to kick the 10B into the 14B & possibly the 2B. No surprise there. BUT I kick it with some pace though as I would want the 14B or 2B to come to rest in the vacinity of my pocket (in my pocket would be a bonus). That way, Ike won't have the simple bank on 3B (putting the CB uptable...on the brunswick).
