    Very clever that the Ghost put one up with so many options. You have a shot on every ball except the eight ball. All have a bit of risk involved and the one ball has the least risk. The two rail bank on the ball by the corner has the most risk.
    I like the shot on the one ball and with this the eight ball does serve some purpose.

      if you shoot the one it looks like it will come up short most times and then it will not be a threat to him and he may get an easy bank on the 8 or 13.

      plus it isnt a game winning shot. you give up your best chance of winning the game on this inning.

        Bank the 3 with just straight draw using the 3 to 1 rule.
        play position on the 10 ball, cut it in and get position on the 1 to bank.

          Naturally Steve is going to bank the 3 and play shape for the stripe

          Steve would know lol.

          The only question is, at the table, how do you feel about using draw, given the degree of stretch on the 3 ball bank? I might follow instead based on the stretch involved....

            Banking the three ball seems to be the best shot at first glance but I'm not so sure that its the correct shot. You both need three and I think banking the one ball and dragging the cueball into the eight ball is better suited to ball control and game management.

              As my first post I"m firing at my hole!
              Absolutely! Bank the 3 and draw back for the ball near the foot rail.

              It's a hanger!

                  Well like a lot of youse guys also chose, Steve decided to bank the 3 - but differently...instead of heading toward the 8, he loaded up with inside english so as to leave me tough on the one ball if he missed...his speed was good, but he didn't cut it quite enough and it ended up like this >>>

                    Since I'm real tall, I look at the bank shot of the three ball from a different perspective. Two diamonds off the head rail and one off the long rail, is a Difficult Shot To Reach for almost anyone, you will most likely need an extension.

                      Yeah Bill...I should have added the fact that Steve had to use the bridge to bank the 3...for a lefty that bank would have been the nutz - a lefty could comfortably bank it and draw back to shape up the 12.

                        I assumed he was a righty.....saw a ton of lefties at this yrs US Open Mandalay. Must of been 30 guys who played left handed.

                          I liked banking the 1ball hitting it thinly avoiding the 8ball with right spin sending the cue ball around the 3ball for shape on the 12ball.

                              I like being close to the OB so I would first look at the 3, but I think I'm in the camp with the 1 ball bankers, CB into the 8. Even if I dont hit the 8 full, I shouldn't sell out a shot and hopefully have 2 balls near my hole and let him shoot next.
