vapros im not sure you could count on getting all 3 balls out of playvapros said:I see two possibilities here. I might bank the 11 and freeze the cb against the pink.
However, I might shoot the 2 into the 9 with some velocity, hoping to clean out SVB's corner, while taking the 13 out with the cb. That might be pretty sweet if I do it well.
Same shot I saw. You have to play defense here or ???Frank Almanza said:View attachment 3946I don't like the position of the eight and the nine and for that reason I would not try to get the 11 ball over and put him into the stack. On my next turn I will also be in the stack with no where to go. I would gently kick the eight over like this using a slight bend on the cue as long as I didn't have to jack up more that a very few degrees. From this position you can almost do it with a level cue.

I think it does. If it rubs the 2 ball that's OK.petie said:Rod,
Do you think the 11 passes? Doesn't look like it to me. It's gotta hit the six or the 2, doesn't it? I was gonna kick off the end rail at the 8 before I saw Frank's shot. I like Frank's shot.
Just be careful and don't make it.TonyG said:you can get the bank to spread if you hit it softly.
Chances are that Lee didn't have the angle to bend kick at the 8 ball so he had to look elsewhere. Lee may have even played to strike the 2 ball first and hopes to move the balls away from Shanes side, we'll never know.bstroud said:Here you see the result of a bad choice of shots. Your opponent NOW has 3 balls very near his pocket and can lock you up easily.
Had you moved the 8 ball when you had the chance you would not be in this situation.
Duck, at what layout are you looking ? See post # 13= 2nd pic.SJDinPHX said:I agree Bill, but he didn't...Now on to Shanes shot,...If Shane can see the 9 ball, he can shoot it into the 2, make the 9 and leave it on the rail (on Lee's side) about 6'' below the side pocket..Another good option,I like even better, would be to kick one rail at the 2 ball, just barely hard enough to make it, and leave the cue ball behind the 9. BIG trouble for Lee.
