Lets say its early game and my opponent has 4-5 balls within 3 feet of his hole. He left me long and uptable. I can't seem to find a safe shot, not even a good chance at pocketing his closest ball. I have nothing that goes in my hole and no 2-way shot. If i take a foul it will just get worse. so, I figure its time for a hale-mary to clear his balls and hope for the best. Question: if you are in this position, would it be better to blast them and draw the rock back uptable, or blast them and slide the rock towards his hole ?
