You're on 2 fouls. You have the bottom right hand corner pocket. WWYD? :frus

Try to not scratch in the side. :eek:
Rod.
P.S. I like the other choices if they're kinda safe.

California style>would be to bank the eight in your corner, moving the cue behind the five, nine. Then run out.:lol:lol

Seems a good shot, I wasn't sure it was available.

If it can be played pocket speed and mostly CB to the rail, I like it tactically, but unless it gets safe IMO it's no good... all you get offensively is a choice between two off-angle combinations that might be impossible to play safe off of.

Ronny, maybe. Humans, no. :D

I don't think it gets worse by nudging off the 7 toward the 2 just to get off two scratches. Once you are off the scratches other shots (at least kicks) will be available, and your general status in terms of where the balls are lying is not bad if you can survive to get some moves in yourself.

Even being on 2 fouls, I would consider the kick/tickie underneath the 7 in order to get the cue ball more on top of the 2-ball. Execution looks pretty easy.

I really don't want to leave him where he can shoot the 2 into the 10 into the 12 into the 3 (all while pulling the cueball behind the 7 or on the rail near my side pocket), at which point lots of bad things could happen for me.

Bank the 8 ball to my hole trying to get it in the first diamond from my pocket area but mainly focusing on sliding my cue ball in between the 5 and 9 getting towards the side rail.

Looks like California and Arizona have the same style

Good shot, Lenny. You must have my book,
"How to Lose Your Bankroll in One One Pocket Shot",
vol 1.
