Dustin, I hate to say it but you've been listening to too much Danny D..i think you gotta go three rails and come in behind/try to touch the deuce.
..and i expected TD to jump my ass about my fascination with the three railers...Dustin, I hate to say it but you've been listening to too much Danny D..
Two things you can count on from him:
1. Everytime a guy breaks the other guy should kick 3 or 4 rails around the table and bump the ball by the breaker's pocket.
2. The lag is so very important in a 3 out of 5 match because if it goes 5 games the winner breaks the 5th game. Wow, what a revelation. All of the moron commentators say this.
Doesn't mean Scott didn't shoot your shot.
TD,I want to say something: first thanks to all who put up these threads, but I must say if it is is possible to get that "players angle" in these wwyd's that is better and more "informative" than any other angle. And yes, I am asking politely. Nice angle Dennis.
I made a thread a while back that seemed to have enlightened absolutely nobody. I am very talented in that regard.I too would like to thank Dennis and the others for contributing these wwyd threads to One Pocket.org. It is fun to read the responses and offer my own choices as well. Maybe someone can share how to make these wwyd posts so some others can offer one or two. I certainly have no idea how, but would like to know.
In this case I have the shot I think would be best but I will refrain from stating it for a while to give others a chance of making their selection first.
Ithink I've jumped in a little too quickly at times. I'm sorry if I have. I get a bit excited by these things sometimes. Maybe because I love this game more than anyone could know.
I have not seen this match and I think it is best should you know what shot the shooter plays in these threads to keep it to yourself at least for a while.
It's kind of like cheating if you don't. JMO
I also enjoy these threads.I like firing the 10 into the 2 and floating forward off the 7. You just have to get rid of that 2 now I feel, or it will get real bad.

Rodney, it's been over three years that i've been waiting for you to put up a shot that I don't like. :sorry I don't like positioning the cue ball on the side of the 9ball it ended up in here. Imo you leave your opponent too many possible options to put you back in trouble. You can leak out the moved 15ball as an escape for him, or he can play off the 9ball and keep his advantage. Your side of the table is too naked to play the shot like that. Just my opinion.I'm gonna try to draw here and get the 15 ball on my side.
This was the first shot I saw also. I like it. There is another shot even more aggressive but also more risky. If i was at the table and confident I could hit it accurately I would go for it.... Banking the 6 ball 2 rails just missing the 13 ball and going into the 5 7 10 ball area. If you catch the 5 ball you might billiard the 10 ball in plus you will open up and push 3 or more balls to your side. I would spin my cueball 3 rails up table trying to leave him long and straight in on the 14 ball.Okay, here is the shot I see. Granted, it is very aggressive but if I have a good feel for the speed of the table the shot is not dangerous and can reap great rewards. It is very important that I have a good feel for the speed of the table so if this is my first shot of the match I may chose something else.
I like banking the fifteen past the thirteen if possible, and running the cue ball short, three rails back to the second diamond on Ochoa's side. As long as the object ball can be played past the nine (there appears to be plenty of room) and the focus be on the cue ball, the shot has great prospects. The cue ball should hit the first rail about one diamond above the side pocket. I might even make a ball in my pocket with this shot but even if I don't I should get a ball somewhere near my pocket and hide it as well. I just want to make certain I don't run the cue ball much past the second diamond on Ochoa's side.
