I like cutting in the 10 and playing position on the 7? in the middle of the table.
I'm thinking that the cut on the 10 ball is difficult (especially with the bridge) that's the reason I suggested to lay it up and play cue ball.
Playing position with the bridge on a thin cut like the 10 ball usually doesn't work out and you give up your position and allow your opponent to strengthen his. In this situation if you position the 10 ball where your opponent must deal with it, he not only has to deal with the 10 ball but he has to protect the ball in front of his pocket not to give up a bank on it as well.
Laying up the 10 ball you can do that 100% of the time, cutting in the 10 ball with the bridge and playing position???? I don't know.
