Good idea for a player of your caliber, but here's probably how I would hit it .John Brumback said:wouldn't enter my mind here.I'm thinning off the one and trying to get lucky and tie the brown ball and the one up a little and going down table with the cball.I'd rather just pass In this spot and let him take the next one from where
I leave him.Like i said,I don't think the score has anything to do with this shot.Futher more...When and If he shoots at the next long rail bank I just left him,he'll have the added pressure of selling out a good bank when and If he misses.Least that's my story and I'm sticking to It.John B.

Well..what would you really do? John B.
Man has got to know his limitations.Good thinking,I think.John B.Cowboy Dennis said:John,
With my current state of eyesight I would probably mess up the shot, just like I showed. If I could see what I was doing I think I would play a very simple safe and let him shoot. The 3 is tied up and if he misses the straight-back on the 7 he leaves me a shot at the 1 ball.

Great minds think alike . See post #11.fred bentivegna said:Cross over the face of the one ball. Cue ball to the side rail and then down to the cushion of the foot rail. Bank the one ball straight back to around the 1st diamond on the head rail. With the 1 and 7 so far apart there should be no place to play a proper safe. He should be forced to shoot at something low percentage from here and more importantly, wherever the cue ball lands afterwards should provide a decent shot for the win.
