Its a pretty good plan.. the only thing you would have to sweat is if decides to play the 13 rail first ( which I would try it) he could get shape on the 15 and possibly get out on you.If I thought I could shoot the 10ball and snooker him that would be my first choice, if not then I would take an intentional, he figures to take one back then I would push to the top rail where the chalk is positioned and leave him straight in on the 13ball. That's my strategy and imo i'll give up two balls but my opponent will still be on four and i'll try to win from there.
I looked at the kick behind the 13ball and didn't think it was there. If it's there then it's not by much.Its a pretty good plan.. the only thing you would have to sweat is if decides to play the 13 rail first ( which I would try it) he could get shape on the 15 and possibly get out on you.
Rolling the 10 ball in could be real tricky and you could easily leave him the 13 and if you did he would get to 7 and have a bank for the win. If I thought I could definitely hook him (95 %) I would roll the 10 in..If I thought I could kick and take an intentional and below or behind the 13 ball i would probably shoot it
I went to my table and set up the position and concluded that the kick to pocket the 13ball was not a tough kick , maybe 60/40 against pocketing it for a decent kicker like myself. Tough option to choose but maybe the only one, maybe.I looked at the kick behind the 13ball and didn't think it was there. If it's there then it's not by much.
I understand that I would give up a rail first kick on the 13ball if I chose my plan on taking the intentional and then pushing to the rail by the chalk, however, the kick on the 13ball is no hanger, would you agree?
Lets look at it this way. Do you believe the kick on the 13ball is a more difficult shot than the the kick to get behind the 13ball is ? If you answered yes than I would push to the chalk.
Set up both shots before you give me an answer, thx.
5-3=2 But the 13 ball is at 1.5, so that 9 ball is in the way of hitting 3.5how would you do that??
Doesn't Gay look sorta like Jim Croce?
