    I never even saw that shot as a possibility. But what are you going to do with the cue ball? And why shoot a trick shot when you're ahead 3-1? It looks to me like if the 6 didn't go, which it probably wouldn't, there's a good chance of selling out a return straight-back or cross-side.

    Are you sure you're not just being kind to Pittsburgh Billy because he was mindful of even mentioning that shot?

I would be betting my own.

      That was impressive, eloquently stated. But allow me to try interpret what you just said, if I may. The way I understand it is that we'll probably never play.(means that we're not going to play) But in the event that we ever do (but I know we're not)
      You will be betting your own. Are you sure?
      But if we do play, promise not to get too angry when I try to explain to you that the players that gave me the most problems were the players from Detroit. Plus, i'm old now and my consistency is gone, so would you like to play?

        Dr. Arthur, I promised you that if you came to Tunica I would improve your game a ball, i'll start here because you're from Pittsburgh.

        There are many shots that most players feel are trick shots, but their actually disguised as trick shots, which allows certain players to discreetly relieve you of your $$$$$ Don't be a hater.

          Ok i'm done f@@king with you, now i'll undress the disguise.

          In this situation what we know is that we cannot leave the cue ball at the foot end of the table, so ultimately what we would like to do is score a bank, but if missed leave the cue ball at the head end of the table, close to a cushion. Now that's when we need to start using our imagination, like I mentioned at first about banking the 6 ball two in the corner. Well the strength of banking the 6 ball two in the corner is that if hit with the right speed and with a good stroke, the cue ball will be drawn to the end rail and the 6 ball will be banked two cushions toward the top right pocket with the speed if missed to leave the area. That's playing the percentages. But there's a slight problem with that shot, but not enough of a problem to not shoot it. The problem with that shot is, that a certain % of the time the 6 ball will double the corners of the pocket and not leave the area. But like I said "not enough times not to shoot it" But lets now take this shot a step forward. If this shot is missed short, it will bounce off the end rail and go straight down table. But if this shot is missed long it will go 4 cushions toward the side pocket Now I think we're on to something here. Why don't we play it 4 cushions in the side? With playing it 4 cushions in the side your margin for error is greater, plus you'll lessen the percentages that the ball will stay up table. Now that may appear as a trick shot, which actually it kinda is, but who's tricked?

            On further review I have to concede that the 4 in the side is too tough a shot considering the depth and angle shown with the shot.. The angle demands a hard hit with a fairly deep cut that needs to be hit accurately, a little too much to ask even though the design of the shot is a good one. But I still believe the two in the corner is the right shot, much easier hit, based off of the speed needed to succeed with the shot is more controllable, bottom line.

            For the 4 in the side to be the better option you would need a straighter angle and a little closer shot. It's much easier and predictable to control the cue ball when you need speed with the shot, to be shooting at a straighter angle. With a straighter angle the speed needed to execute the shot is [B]much less[/B because you are going into the meat of the ball which will transfer more speed with the object ball. Less velocity, easier hit, more controllable.

            I promise I won't change my mind again.

              Freddy, if you will, tell me why you like the four railer better than two in the side. Thanks.
              Good question. You must first visualize all the possible results of both shots. Plus in this case you must visualize the results of a 2 in the corner attempt.
              You first start with the speed required to draw the cue ball 4 diamonds back to the head rail. Now you insert that speed into all 3 shots you are considering. 2 in the side, 2 in the corner and 4 in the side.

              You will first notice that applying that draw speed to a 2 in the side will cause the object ball to travel much too fast to control properly. Unless you make it or hit the point of the side, the object ball is going to be somewhere down table and close to the cue ball. Not safe.

              The 2 in the corner is a better option than the 2 in the side because you need to apply more speed to the 2inthecorner because the object ball has to travel further anyway. The downside is if you under hit it speed wise the object ball will stay on the wrong side of the table (near head rail), or worse yet, bobble in the corner and leave a cross side or cross corner. Possibly safe. The angle is running a little long also, so you need to put some "shortening" on the cue ball.

              The 4 in the side is the nuts, because the angle is right on anyway, to hit the long rail on the 3rd cushion. You can put a full draw on the cue ball. Since you need plenty of speed to get the 4 cushions, there is no speed control issue. Hit it hard. The direction off of the final cushion is AWAY from the cue ball and headed into the correct direction, which is uptable to the foot rail. If you miss, the object ball runs back up table safe.

              The only possible bad thing that can happen is if you totally blast the shot and off of the 4th rail the object ball slams into the titty of the side pocket and returns back toward the head rail. You need to really crush the shot to do that. Very unlikely. Difficult shot to make, but mostly all upsides.

                Not hardly. Right is right. Refer to my post #21 for a definitive explanation of the value of the 4 in the side.

                  For such a short time there you flirted with being correct. Unfortunately, that experience didnt last very long.

                  The four in the side is a dead on angle. Refer to my book please for these 4 in the side systems. You might learn something.

                    Admittedly the four rails in the side would be beautiful shot to see made-- a real crowd pleaser. Of course the average decent player is not even going to see the possibility of the shot. And in this layout the shot would naturally need to be hit hard, not "firm", as in your book, due to the leave.

                    But if the shot is missed too short, or not quite long enough (5 rail speed), then there will be a makeable shot left for the opponent. The shot itself may not be that difficult for one who has practiced it, but it's a poor choice for the average player. One can't shoot a shot simply because it's "on line" to the pocket.

                      Doc, Doc, no wonder Col Bille is pounding on you. What is the shot that you are going to leave? The cue ball is going to be on the head rail. The object ball is traveling up and away from the cue ball off of the 4th rail. As is indicated in the diagram, all you have to do it hit it in the face and draw your ball-- and hit it with speed. If you cant hit it hard enough to do that, then this bank forum is much too advanced for anyone with that low of a skill level.

                        I'm not questioning your understanding of angles, and the kind of angles that are conducive to play certain shots, but what is in question is our understanding of how the balls are actually positioned. I'm certain that the way I see the balls positioned that you need to cut the 6 ball quite a bit to the right in order for the shot to be executed correctly. If i'm correct then you'll have to hit the shot with more speed to execute the shot the way it needs to be executed, and when you need to do that, that's when you start running into problems such as controlling the cue ball, and also the object ball. In addition to that, on this particular shot, once again if i'm correct about needing to cut the 6 ball because of the angle offered, the cue ball will go directly to the left side rail and then toward the bottom rail in the direction of the bottom right pocket (about a diamond short of the pocket) which increases the possibility of the balls running into one another. Below is an insert that I took from my post #20, in case you didn't read it.



                        For the 4 in the side to be the better option you would need a straighter angle and a little closer shot. It's much easier and predictable to control the cue ball when you need speed with the shot, to be shooting at a straighter angle.

Less velocity, easier hit, more controllable.


                        Now I do have a very good understanding of the angle needed to make this shot a viable option, and like I said..the way I see this shot...the angle isn't there. So what we have here is not a difference in understanding the playability of the shot, but a difference in how we see the angle.

                        Oh by the way i'm almost certain that i'm correct about how the balls are positioned.
                        Whenever we differ i'm right about 92% of the time, in case you haven't noticed. I'm a percentage man.

                            The reason for not banking the 6 ball 1 rail is the risk of the 6 ball doubling the corners of the intended pocket and leaving a return bank. From the angle shown it's too tough of an angle to gamble with the shot. I believe that if you shoot this shot you will sell out just about as many times as you will pocket the bank, considering the score at 3 -1 in your favor it's not a good gamble. If i'm correct about the risk, then i'm sure you'll agree with the bad gamble part.

                              Your guess is as good as mine as to what Saez intended here but he banked the 9 into the 5 and almost drew the cueball in to the side.

                                Saez is one of the players that Freddie challenged with his, "i'm the best thinker mover" in the game challenge in Cincinatti.

                                Does that help you with understanding what he was shooting?
