I cut fairly well, so I would make the 8 ball.
Welcome to the home for degenerate One Pocket players Sherm...I like your style - you didn't tip toe in with your first post...:heh

PS, Since you can cut that 8 in - I'll need a little spot if we ever play...:)

This would be my shot as well, pocketing the ball could be possible but making sure you get the ball close to your pocket is good enough. I would like to position the 1ball in a place where it would be a threat to be able to be pocketed from up table, if you can do that you can leave the cue ball around 1/2 diamond short of the center diamond on the top rail.

I like that shot as well. I have seen too many times where the angle the cue ball comes off the rail from a thin cut, makes finding the corner pocket at the opposite end of the table with the cue ball very likely....

Obviously the right shot. About 1-3/16" of left English should do it.

You sir, can get 2-1 on the money shooting first here every game, slicing merrily away at that 8...

Because of my height, I can reach this shot, so I'll bank the 15 at speed. You short guys, ''deal with it'' :heh

This is my shot as well. However, I wish the 15 was closer to the CB so I could bridge up over it.
Dan....Now that I know you can make shots like this 8ball - I'm a little scared re. our upcoming scheduled match playing even at the DCC...:eek:

I was really just kidding. In the words of our dearly departed brother: "That shot ain't worth a quarter." You should, if anything, start selecting your entree - I hope my opponents (with whom I'm playing even) like that shot!
