Score is 0-0, Efren to shoot.

WWYD? Any mistake and you lose outright.

kick at the 14ball, I'd be more likely to do this than shoot jacked up at the 10ball. Of course I doubt it's what he'll do.

Efren probably banked the 10 cross side into the wired 3 ball combo, hitting the 4 ball first to pocket the stripe.

I don't see the one rail kick to the jawed ball. Looks too off angle to me. I do think jacking up and a carom off the ten ball is the correct shot.

I would ave to be at the table but I dont think you even have ot jack up that much...a lot of RHE hit the ball half full...

I like this shot Rod. I practice this shot from table to table. With the cue ball located in your own corner it is pretty easy to straighten it toward your opponent's pocket using follow and one tip of left while aiming at the first diamond. The corner becomes big because the side rail offers more margin. It is a shot that should be in every One Pocket players arsenal. This shot is illustrated in one of Grady's videos from many years ago.

I also like the draw shot off the ten but as close as the cue ball is to the rail that shot becomes far more difficult.

I would take a foul by pushing to the stripe(?) closest to the one ball. I think this has less risk and could cause my opponent to make a mistake.

I would kick at the 14 ball but using the natural angle. It looks like you could have the Q ball go rail first(side rail) and make the 14 while leaving whitey on the rail afterward.

Efren came off the 8 with perfect touch to end up here:



Jose tried to get out of this but failed and Efren won the game. He ended up winning this match 3-0 without any problem.
