This is the last one from this match and also the one I am most interested to see what you guys would do here.

Gabe's shot this time, his hole is bottom left

Gabe only needs 2, Corey needs 4.

WWYD?

Have to move the green ball... laying behind it is tough, so I would just kick it with a high cb and with some speed... Trying to 2/3 rail it near my side pocket... just keep it simple here, don’t see much else...

That's the shot I like.
If he can cross the 6, it's a distant possibility, but it's a tough CB track after the hit.

I like playing a 2 rail kick. Kicking he 6 towards my hole leaving the cue ball behind the other balls protecting the ball by my hole.

I don't think I could shoot it but the 15 looks so good on the carom and the 8 goes to your pocket as well. I believe I would just cross the 6 out up table and leave the cue ball on the foot rail

This is 100% what I saw *for me*.

The kick off the long rail to push the 6 over to Gabe's pocket doesn't look close to a scratch, so long as he can hit it close to correct to making it. So I could see a great player shooting that, too. Chohan probably would. One risk is that the stack protects the 6 too well and you force Duel to shoot and make the 4-ball bank. But the goal on the kick is to leave the cue ball up towards the 3rd diamond where the kiss is in play.

nobody likes shooting the 8, carom off the 6 to your hole, CB goes behind green ball and kicks it toward your hole?

Not saying that;s what Gabe did, just surprised no one has mentioned that one yet.

well, I agree with Jeff and everyone who posted the kick and stick...it seemed kind of obvious to me. The main reason I posted this one was because I feel that Gabe has a lot of one pocket knowledge and moves very well, so maybe he just made the wrong decision here or played a bad shot like we all do sometimes.

Take a look at what he did. He is supposed to lose the entire match on that shot (and almost did), take a look at Corey's inning after Gabe's shot too...
