That is really neat that Pat helped you out (or maybe you are kidding, lol) -- but anyway Pat has to really appreciate all the exposure you (Dennis) and OnePocket.org have given Accustats over the last few years -- besides all the videos you have purchased, so if he did help you out, then I definitely understand why.Efren just broke and it's Rafael's shot. What would you do?
P.S. I called Pat Fleming and asked him if he could go back in his time machine and get some more views of this layout. He came through for me.

First I would like to thank Dennis for getting the ideal angle for this and most shots..behind the cue ball.. This angle clears up a lot of stuff, like Charlies 12-5ball combo bank which would be a very good option if it cleared the 8ball, however, to me it looks like it doesn't. Shooting off the 2ball is risky if you try to move balls, unless you can stick whitey on the 11ball and gamble from that position. Franks shot to me looks to be a very viable option because of the other options being so "iffy" probably my choice as well as a few others unless I talk myself into shooting the 2ball and sticking on the 11ball moving balls.
Creative thinking to shoot a shot that offered no protection.:sorryCreative thinking to draw it and send it back over in front of Efren's hole - maybe he felt like following it might result in a kiss?
I believe he was wanting to hit at least one of the balls. The angle to draw the ball made hitting them very tough.
You're thinking right when you say that the combo bank 12-5 is a good option (providing the 5ball doesn't bank back into the stack and move the cue ball) it positions a ball near your pocket and locks your opponent up in the stack.My thinking as well Dr. Bill. I hate those combination "clean out" shots unless I hide the cue ball. Too much goes wrong. That's why I never considered that in my first post. I felt the 13(or12?) 5 bank was the right shot. It looked like to me the 5 would catch just enough of the bottom of the stack (or pile as your good friend and compadre Danny D would say) to open a few up and head toward my hole, while freezing the great Efren on the top of the stack. If I'm wrong on my thinking please explain. Thanks in advance your accustats student ,Todd
