  • A WWYD from day 1 of the SSOPC

    This came up in Casey Killian's match with Buddy Hall. The score is 3-3 in balls. It is Buddy's shot. Buddy must either be corner-hooked on the combination or it does not pass the 8-ball because otherwise he would have shot that I am pretty certain.

              Yes, I just looked it up and read through it. Well this situation did not work out well for Buddy either...

              I think the object ball is a hair farther out of the pocket in this example, but the cue ball further in, and also there are blockers to prevent the short cross corner kick (plus maybe even corner hooked). So yes the situation is very similar, but...!!!

                If I understand you, and the situation, you have Buddy shooting at the wrong hole.

                    I knew the shot he was callin' I misunderstood earlier comments.

                    Were those pocket designations there from the get-go? Doh!

                      You have no choice here, you have to slowly work out the ball in the opponents corner and be patient as hell. Bump and stay behind it, bump and stay behind it, until you can shoot it out and pull back to the bottom rail.

                        Well that looked like what Buddy tried to do -- jacking up and giving a little nudge to the 2-ball. I don't have a screen shot of the result, but neither the 2 nor the cue ball moved very far, but it was not a foul.

                        Casey promptly got up and came off the right side of one of the balls at the bottom of what remained of the stack and stuck Billy pretty badly on the bottom rail. This was the result from Casey's shot -- deep trouble for Billy!

                          Oh, well damn, maybe there's no way out then!

                            what about shooting gently into the bottom rail and freezing the cue ball
                            to the upper half of the 4 ball. leaves a kick on the 6 but not much else

                              Here’s another shot if one was really desperate Shoot straight up table
                              paralel to the long rails, hit down on the cue ball at 11 o'clock to kick the
                              ball in the pocket in. Silly as it sounds I made it on my first try. Second,
                              missed it high by a diamond. 3rd missed inside by about the same. 4th, &
                              5th made it. 6th, hit it and moved it and quit while I was doing so well.

                              I’m not advocating the shot if there is any other way to get out of the
                              inning. It’s something I picked up from one of Freddys books many years
                              ago and it has gotten me out of alot of jams. 1 tip = 1 diamond cross table,
                              1/2 diamond length ways. I’m sure most know it. this is for those that
                              dont. Try it just for fun.
