It's game 4 and Fusco is up 2-1 in the match. It's his shot. What would you do?

These are the only pics of the layout:(

i just came in from a 4 mile run so i am alittle oxygen deprived (thats my excuse and im sticking to it..:heh)
if the solid stripe combo is laying such that the solid wont carom much
i might try this
id have to be REAL sure the angle wouldnt end up selling out the 8 or the stripe
if im real lucky i get a tiki off the 8 and the stripe goes toward my hole...:eek:

Nice shot Larry, you're not showing that the three ball might also drive a lot of balls to your side of the table.

My self, i wouldnt feel comfortable shooting the shot suggested by III.
The only reason is i cant fully predict whats gonna happen when the 3 hits that 10/13, looks like it just opens more balls for nick to me.

I would cross the 1 ball and play it off the stack , that part of the rack seems tight enough to take a pocket speed carom and i can keep the rock on good side of things without selling out the 8.
Thats assuming the 3/14 isnt wired to nicks hole. Then the only shot would be try to unscrew it, with mr.IIIs shot or a variation of it.

That straight back is the 1-ball. Having just moseyed over from the bank pool forum, why not bank the 1-ball first? :D

If you miss, you may let the stack get completely away from you.
Rod.
P.S. And probably only get one ball.

Being very cautious due to the 3/14 combo sitting there, Pete kicked at the 7 ball, almost didn't hit it at all but did manage to thin it and sell out a shot. It was his last shot of this game.

What a thought indeed. I've let my stack get completely away from me a couple of times. Always when betting on or backing some deadbeat mullphkkr. When I bet on myself, I was ok. usually
