This is from the video post about the Artie commentary.

Scott is up 3-0 in balls this game and its still his shot, I saw a few good things he could have done here, WWYD?

(If you already watched it wait to comment until the others chime in)

This is what I'd do. I haven't watched it.

nice shot ...good eye rod
my first thought was to bank the 5 with alittle draw to hide behind the stack
and be sure there is no cut on the 4

Isn't the obvious shot bank the 5 ball to your hole and float the cue ball over to the side rail?

He could also 3 rail the 4 ball and jar loose the 7 to the foot rail and leave the CB stuck in the stack.

I thought about shooting the 9 off of the 3 and stick the CB to the 7...it may get close to your hole and put him into some trouble:





However, that is not what he did...

My shot would be to bank the 5 with pocket speed. Use a stop shot and the rack will be blocking any return shot.

He did 3 rail the 4 ball but just kind of stuck the cue ball in the same general vicinity instead of jarring loose the 7 ball.

The 4 ball went 3 rails and into the head ball of the stack breaking a few loose on his side.

Ended up like this for Alex:

I watched it, but I get special dispensation because I can't remember what I had for breakfast. I remember this layout, but can't figure out what he did. Anyway, there's no doubt in my mind I would bank the 5 pocket speed with a half tip of low center, and if that's what he did this WWYD wouldn't be here. :heh

... thin the 12 and back up against the 1; 9 off the 2 and stick; 10 into the 3; 4 ball 3 rails, etc.

He made a real nice shot, although I'm sure he'd rather have had the 4 miss the stack, and get near his hole. The upside is that he jiggled a couple of balls loose. Alex, of course is in no trouble here. If he wants to use the bridge he can come off the left side of the 14, bringing the CB up Scott's side rail with the stack as a blocker. That might put Scott into jeopardy.

Okay if the crazy shots are coming out, here is another one lol. Lot's of balls will be moving my way.
Now that's a Scott-Shot (and isn't bad either, especially if there weren't other really good options.) Good eye.

:)..Cincy already gave us Scott's shot. I was extending the WWYD from post #10. Actually I believe that Alex is in the stronger position here.
