Hit the seven full, rolling up on the 12 so as to hide him from the crossbank. If I don't hit a rail so be it as long as the CB is stuck behind the 12, I am ok.---Smitty

first choice for me is id Hit the 15 (by the left side pocket) and stop the q ball OR if i could draw him into the 2 balls there and freeze it i would try that instead, 15 should move a couple balls off the side rail and hopefully into play down table on my side.
In hindsite, knowing its Bugz ,this may even be too passive if its known fact that no shot was safe if you left him any kind of bank.
he would be lookin at a 2 railer at best and maybe out if he went for it and made it.

Two rail the closest ball, let the cb come back from the end so no cut on the( two/four) ball.

The table looks like a crime scene after the fingerprint boys did their thing.

I was thinking the powder came from Jose. He likes it too. I think he leaves it around on purpose. I've seen him do it several times especially in 9 ball if his oppo is breaking too good. Its a lot harder when Jose racks with powdery hands and gets it all over the balls.

Bank the 8 ball and leave cue ball behind the nine ball. Hit cue eight o'clock English. Medium speed.

That's the shot I like. The bank is not as important as trying to snuggle the CB behind the 9. He's Jose Parica. He can do it!!

Sounds like maybe it was a powder competition as well as a One Pocket competition between those two!!

Androd's twice across shot was the first thing that came to my mind too, but it feels a little aggressive. Maybe I will also look for something a little safer...

Edit -- looking at the two-railer again, I don't think the speed lies for going all the way up and half way back down with the cue ball. The cut on the two-railer looks a lot slighter than what you would need for that. You might even be able to english and hold the cue ball while two-railing that stripe, but I could simply be misjudging the camera distorted angles :D

You want a damp towel to wipe your hands.

I'm shooting straight into the stripe ball by the side pocket, lock the qb to the 7. The 9 ball and a bunch others move over to Jose's side.

Well, I'm not that smart but I know what I want to do. Find the spot to thin off the 14 and move the 10 to my rail, opening up a (narrow) banking lane. Cue ball goes 3 rails to freeze high on the 6 and, hopefully, the rail. Let Bugs figure out how not to give me three or more balls next inning.

I like this shot best. After your opponent shoots his return shot you figure to be in about the same spot that you shot from, however, you will then have more options to choose from in your next inning.
