I guess I have a vivid imagination, Dennis. You do too if you think getting past the point of the side pocket is difficult. And to imagine your chances of freezing on the six so tight as to prevent Efren from seeing the three ball requires drugs.
Dennis, the shot I have described is a staple shot in One Pocket. You've been around the block enough to know that. Don't play dumb.
First of all, the six will hit the one and come off the headrail in front of the cueball if I execute properly. If it doesn't and I leave a shot at the 3 ball, then yes, I do think it's a tough enough shot to make us rethink it. This is the only pic available from this match of this layout and we all see things differently. I think the 3 is close enough to the siderail to cause a problem for the cueball on a return shot. Passing this shot up when it's deemed dangerous is also a "staple shot" in one-pocket.
P.S. I'm not playing
