Let's see, there is the 8ball combo fly the qb around the table and try to get it behind the 10 or draw the qb to the 9.

Or the 9-6 combo freezing the qb to the pink ball.

Not sure if the three rail kick behind the 10 is open.

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

V-Man,

It's extremely rare that I comment in the shot choice threads that I post but I'll tell you one thing; You ain't shooting that shot!!!:D Cueball goes right into the 14 or 10.

Yeah, CD, I guess you're right. To make it work, I had to move the 2 ball away from the rail by a ball width plus about 2 inches, more than in the picture. But it was a nice thought. I guess this means no cookie for me, but I can get to a good place by kicking off the head rail, so that's what I will do. It's a natural, off the center diamond.

The 10 ball is Ikes main threat, I like kicking to the side rail and then into the 10 ball. Not to hard but enough to move it on your side. With a good hit on the 10 you might even leave the cue ball behind the 14 ball. Keith

I would do a simple kick through the gap into a combo tiki to make a ball, run out, rack em up and play anuthern. No problems. Easy shot...

I 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 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.

if the lane is open i would shoot steves shot
if not
i think the lanes for the standard 3-4 rail kick are not available or really low margin for error so i would come off the head rail
first if i were earl id fix my collar.....:rolleyes:.......:lol

since this is the weii table i would probably take a scratch and leave him like this frozen and underneath the 10 so he cant see the 1 or fourteen or anything else but foot rail and side rail....:D

I would rate that as the most powerful shot, but also the one that requires the most execution.

Not as hard as it might look, but still touchy.

I 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.

That was my first thought. And I agree (for me at least) it would be a bit "touchy". I'd shoot it anyway.

^I'm tellin ya Larry, move that 10 a tad, doesn't have to be too much (may even be better the less moved), and then you may have a 2 ball wall there to suffocate him behind for shot after shot to come. Seen that a million times, balls close to the guys hole don't necessarily have to be good ones for him. Next thing you know, oout of the break :)

Earl will probably run out from here though... I was even looking at that billiard on the 15 but he isn't sitting right for that. Ike may have to move that haha.

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 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).

i dont see how you could "kick with pace" from this cue ball position and be confident to control the cue ball,


i figured that would be the responce
hoping to have an angle to clear some balls and not be frozen to the rail so i could then use some pace if need be and stick the cue ball if necessary
