    I will try to depopulate Joe Blow's side of the table, shooting the 14 at the 7 and bringing Jojo off the long rail to rest on the foot rail, near Joe's pocket. With all balls on my side, Joe will have a long tough hill to climb from a tough position.
    If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

      Just pay up or bank the 14 to your side draw to freeze to the 12. Go ahead and let him Bank the 6 and hope he misses and you can run a few afterwards. Tony might be able to stiff the 9 or maybe the 11 is available

        If the three does not go past the six then this is my choice. Nice slow roller. Guaranteed to leave both balls very near to your hole. If you don't make the ten most likely he will not shoot at the seven or the three six combo. So I think it's a free shot to win the game.

          Frank I think your hole is the one closest to the cue ball.
          Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

              I usually fight against an uptable game, but sometimes the table leaves me no choice. This is one of those times, for me at least.

              Get the 14 to my side and stick on the 12, as JTom described.

              P.S. I fight against uptable games not because I *can't* play them, but because it's less fun (less fun to me, not to Grampa) than playing with the pressure/opportunity of real threats of multi-ball runs.

                seems like the 11 is available and you could tree top cue ball over 10

                  I would shoot "jtompilot's" very uncomplicated but very effective shot of banking the 14-ball to my side of the table while playing the cue ball to nudge up against the 12-ball. From that position my opponent doesn't have any effective return shots when compared to... the shot that "vapros" elected. That shot is "to depopulate Joe Blow's side of the table, (by) shooting the 14 at the 7 and bringing Jojo off the long rail to rest on the foot rail, near Joe's pocket. With all balls on my side, Joe will have a long tough hill to climb from a tough position." A quick analysis of "vapros's" shot and it becomes evident that you will quickly lose your current dominant position on the 1, 8, 9, 12 and 15-balls. It further seems evident that Joe Blow will have an easy time knocking those balls from my side of the table to the upper table by picking either the 12, 15 or 9 balls depending on his angle from the back rail. This is now an up table game and how a tactical error can quickly change the game.

                    that's the shot.

                      I'm banking the 9 up/down. Power draw, to the foot rail and back out. All the balls (14,12,8/15 combo) are lined up for your hole. Juice up whitey apply some r/h gearing spin to the obj. ball and bank out....it's a free shot. If missed, no return cross corner bank available.

                          This might be a case where an up table game is imminent; and may be preferable. However, I'd like to leave the CB in the upper right corner, but it's not possible with the 7 sitting there.

                          Therefore I'd take a look at shooting the CB through the 14, banking it to my side, while either: 1. trying to roll the CB between the rail and the 7, or, 2. bumping the 7 up table with the CB. Now there's no offensive return shot for the opponent, and there will likely be a better opportunity next inning.

                            Cory,

                            I take this to mean that you, like all experienced one pocket players, seek to play to your advantage, when you perceive you have one. As there are several legitimate strategies to winning one pocket, let's not besmirch the elderly for the enjoyment they get from one-balling you into a coma.

                            One pocket, like basketball, football, even tennis is quite often about making your opponent play your game. We all are gonna get there some day, unless we quit playing.

                              I would look at the 12\14 carom bank.
