The masse off the short rail first is very workable for me. I don't see any kicks available. Three rail kick is highly dangerous. The up and down one rail has a very small ball to hit because of the position of the eight ball.
Since there's not really much of a shot anywhere this might be worth a whack. Enough follow could make that 1 ball.
I can't wait to see what an expert 3 cushion player would do here or maybe even a one pocket hacker. I'm sure players of their talent levels would have expert opinions to give here.
