  • WWYD - Need 3 in bottom right

    It’s -1 degrees outside and you haven’t showered yet and you need 3 in bottom right.

    WWYD?

    WWYD - Need 3 in bottom right

    Wait.. I’m over banking the 14 with inside to straighten it out and get the cue heading uptable in the right direction.
    Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

      Whether before or after my shower....if I'm playing for $10-$20 a game, I bank the 14...If I'm playing for $50-$100 a game, or at the DCC tournament, I play safe off the 8ball fo-sure...bailiff - call the next case...

          I prefer bank on orange stripe and shoot the 8 next but that is because I that cross over bank is a hanger with shape for me

            I think much preferable to the 14 bank, which I would be concerned would not let me get the CB clear and into the upper left corner, I would look at banking the 13 straight back with high left english which is likely to carry the CB above all the other ball and into the upper left corner.

            And as Ghost has said, if I don't shoot that shot I will two rail the 8 leaving the CB near the side pocket.

                I kinda like banking the 13 with a stun shot and play shape on the 14 or combo bank the 7-5 next.

                  If I felt that I could beat the kiss then I might consider this and then shoot the eight ball next.

                    If you need 3 and there are 11 on the table , I'm going to take a wag he needs at least 8.

                      my shot also , I prefer this to playing shape on the 8 from the 13 because the 13 ball will still be near my pocket if I miss.

                        I like playing off the 8 - it's way safe, easy to control, and could pocket with bonus shots.

                        I might try to play the cue ball a little higher than shown to avoid giving up the 2 ball bank. It doesn't look like any of the cross corner banks go.

                              It is difficult to judge from the photos but from the perceived table layout of balls, I will bank the 14-ball back to my pocket so long as my cue ball passes between the 2-ball and the 10-ball.

                              The same situation with the 8-ball. Once again it is difficult to judge from the photos, but from the perceived table layout of balls, the 1-ball being two railed back to my pocket is another option with the cue ball following down to the upper left hand (opponent's) long rail.
