What makes you think he shot the 9?lll said:left corner nearer us as we look at the table
i think at bank players warp speed it would shorten up enough to go and miss the ball by the side pocket
i guess he chose the right corner
I like playing it close to pocket speed to the right, dropping the cue ball to the bottom rail -- you don't risk leaving much of a shot after, yet it is certainly easy enough to play safe if you happen to drop the 9. The other way looks like you would have to hit it harder to stiff it up and you could easily sell out if you miss.Cowboy Dennis said:You do have to call your pocket you know . Left or right?

john how would you compare your 2 shots in difficulty???John Brumback said:I think you have two shots here and there both just alike.The 7 (brown ball)
Straight back to the right or the 9 straight back to the left. Either one I'm going to kill my cball on the bottom rail down there.Just which one looks the best from being right there at the table. 7 ball center right...9 ball center left.

there is more distance from object ball to the rail and you have to hit it alittl harder i think to make the 9
the 7 being closer to the rail but more distance to it
how should those factors be considered
or after experience like yours the answer is
7 ball center right...9 ball center left
thanks for the reply johnJohn Brumback said:I think the 9 Is a little less diffucult just because It's farther from the rail.But not by much.You really don't have to hit either one real hard.Medium speed
should work for both of these shots.Center cball (stun shot) Is the trick with just a small bit of english.I can show better than I can tell,however.Good luck,

Cowboy Dennis said:Dear Duckhead,
I don't really appreciate going to work in this heat for two days (84 today, whew) and coming home to 34 e-mails, 72 pm's, 9 letters in the mailbox and 63 voicemails all asking the same thing "WHAT DID IKE SHOOT?". You just have to wait like everybody else. Here's what he shot.
P.S. The cueball barely nudged the 8 ball but I figured extra lines would confuse the Duck and he'd want to call a foul or something.

One of the things that makes playing banks so difficult, there is much more strategy involved than it first appears on the surface. Knowing what to shoot at and when and why is a hard-learned lesson, just as in one-pocket.fred bentivegna said:Never, unless you are forced to do so, shoot at a shot that will leave an easier shot than the one you are attempting! Very simple advice.

Dear Easily Predictable Breath,SJDinPHX said:Dear "I have to say nice things about 'bank pool' now", Breath,
Gosh, here you are, over here, comparing the strategies of 'Banks', to 'One Pocket'...It behooves me, to inform you, it is nothing like comparing apples and oranges, (which may be a little tough for you anyway)... It is more like comparing a NASA rocket, to a very small firecracker...Nice try though..
PS..Please leave the complex issues to the older forum members, as MOST of them are much more qualified then a young PR man...

You've gotta know I wrote that so you would respond in the manner that you did. You are so f@@kin' easy this isn't any fun at all .
You are easier to predict than Santino Corleone was and you know what happened to him, don't you?
