Billy, thanks very much for the rare, positive affirmation of one of my shot choices.....but unfortunately I can only give your post an E for effort...:sorry ------>

you also have a perfect <----- with the side pocket looming, not perfect, as Doc and Freddy have already pointed out ( If you notice how the 6 ball is positioned in relation to the side pocket then you and your mentor the Beard should agree that it is laying perfectly to execute the option of banking it cross table between the 5 and 9 balls. Plus it doesn't mean anything to me if Freddie, Doc, Harry, Dennis, or anyone for that matter disagree with a shot choice of mine after I set it up a number of times and have success with it) cross on the 6 ball sending the 6 between the 5 and 9 balls, that is if you want to play safe. <------ Ridiculous to think you would need to point this shot out to me....since, #1. I already saw this option about 1 nano-second after first looking at the layout....and realized that with that side pocket in the way, necessitating a perfect hit with no margin for error - it's not as good or lying as natural as my safety shot.....and #2. Blatant redundacy was commited - your safety was already mentioned and discussed by several others, earlier in the thread.
( I was the 2nd. person that posted in the thread, look at post #2 and you will clearly read what I said about that option, so the option wasn't mentioned earlier in the thread, right? I described the position to whoever might be interested and I assume you are by your usual rebuttal with many of my shot choices. Also your judgement on many of the shots we have been in discussion about seemed to be clouded as it is again with how the 6 ball is laying to execute the simple safety.)
I posted in post #59 that I liked your choice but I also like crossing the 6 ball if you're going to play safe, whats wrong with what I said? You took it as a back handed compliment as usual, sad. But the best shot without question is the two rail bank with the 6 ball, which you don't agree with or understand why. That's just one of the many reasons when we play why your not even going to come close to winning, in spite of all my wrong choices.:sorry
