Jerry, I might be misunderstanding your shot, but if the shooter thins the 10 and leaves the CB on the side rail, why wouldn't the opponent then simply shoot the 10 into the stack, moving even more balls in front of his hole?This is a tough situation to be in. I don't see any home run shots that could turn the tables in one inning. I wouldn't open up the stack in any way. My shot would be to hit the ten ball thin on its left side and freeze the cue ball on the side rail as close to the side pocket as is possible. If possible let him look only at the ten ball and make him try to come up with some shot where he leaves me in the stack which I think would be hard to do. Like I always say, make him keep the heat on me if he can. There are always intentional scratches available. Lastly, you just have to be patient playing one pocket as no body is perfect in keeping the heat on every shot.
