Herre is a wwyd from a match I had with Cuban Joe about 40 years ago. As you look at the screen it's Joe's (your shot) score 7/5 me and he needs three balls right hand pocket. I'll have the answer on wednesday.
I like three-railing the 9 ball, crossing it. Looks like almost a natural path for Jojo to come off the long rail and roll on the 8 ball. Might be really good. Money shot.
I tried to set it up and shoot it on my 8 ft table, but I had to hit it too hard. I could hit the 8 ball, and even made it a couple of times, but nearly always left a straight shot on the 5. Cushions are pretty dead, but even so . . . Could not stiff it, either. Thinking now that I would have to bank the 9 at the 8 and take Jojo uptable.
If the 4 ball is even slightly off the rail, I’ll use a little left English and back cut the 5 to carom it into the pocket whilst sending the cue ball off the short rail and into a bank on the 9. My intent would be to catch just enough of the side of the 9 so that it banks, making sure I don’t cut it too thinly so that it goes into his pocket.
