well the shooter came off the 5
short rail /long rail/long rail/short rail
barely missing the 14
(was he trying for it??)
just missed the cluster to leave his opponent as diagramed
I think the shooter made a good shot off the 5. I had thought about the same route earlier, but to take out the 14. However in the end I thought it was too risky.

I don't know how the other guy made the 8. Maybe he kissed it in off the 9 ball. He may have been just trying to play safe, and got lucky. That's a long shot on a 10' table.:eek:

What did the cue ball do? That's most important here. Maybe that's why he shot the eight. If the cue ball is not getting safe then I liked the rail first better
cue ball barely clipped the 3

Gee I thought leaving a guy up table with a long shot was what you want to do on a ten foot table. Was that me or others that said that.

Well, I would take this result, considering the position he was in before repositioning the 5 and going back up table with the CB. I mean look at the shot the guy came with to win the game, at best it's a low %tage shot that figures to give up some balls if missed and very possibly the game. Would you bet the game you could make the 8 from there? I wouldn't, but he did. I guess he figured he could get safe if he missed the 8, and I suppose he could have, never know for sure because he made it. In his defense, he was in a bit of a pickle, so shooting at the 8 was one of the options he had. Tough spot, for both players.

I may be crazy, but any player in the world can have that shot against me. The guy who put him there made a potential game-winning shot from a brutal position, but lost to a high-risk gamble (he got "rivered.")

Hey, that shooter in post #24 looks like Cardone! At least the bridge hand does. But looking again, the shooter may have too much hair....:heh

Jokes aside, I agree with Jeff. The shooter must have believed the CB would roll safe off the 8 ball. Otherwise it's hard to believe that he'd take that shot from 8-9' away-- off the rail!, with a sure sell out if missed; especially since he had other options.

can't see 8'
