Pat's shot --- his pocket is at the bottom left --- ball score is 3-2 Ghost ahead, Pat going to 7, Ghost going to 9 --- Pat has superb ball/table position here, but how can he keep, protect, or improve his position? --- wsPd/wwyd ----->
Damn Ghost, I thought you would lighten up on me, but they are getting tougher! I am kicking by doubling out of my corner and go up on the stripe farthest up table, try for a good hit if it is there. But, I want to protect my 6 ball. Whitey
I wouldn't be so concerned about getting under the 12, but it looks like there's a perfect path to go 2 rails between the 5 & 9 to actually come short enough to hit the 3rd rail short of the 12 to run into it or even pass it on the high side to end up on the rail with the cueball.might get your wish and get right behind the 12. straight in shot with easy position to run balls if you do for him.
besides i dont know if you can get there from where you are.
and if you dont get perfect he will hit the 9 into the 6 and magic, all your balls will disappear from your hole and reappear around his hole
