  • Ghost vs. Steve 1

    Steve's shot --- the ball score is 5-5, both going to 8 --- Steve's pocket is at the bottom right --- Steve is a very aggressive player, a good rotation player more than One Pocket.....wwyd?

          bank the 3 in thats an easy shot, play position for the 14, make it and then play to make the one or bank the 13 and out.

            Bank the 1 and hit the 8 - final answer.
            If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

              Exactly. Use low right, pocket speed on the 1, and try to hit the 8 as full as possible to stop the cue ball right there, leaving a follow up bank shot if the 1 goes in.


              The 3 bank is an easy shot but you'd have to hit it harder than pocket speed to move the cue ball to a safe spot.

                Bank the 3 pocket speed with top left moving the CB just below 8 for shape on the 1.

                  I'd bank the 3 straight-back with draw. If I miss, he's got nothing. If I make it, cut the 12 in, play shape for the 1 or 13.

                  Some guys couldn't reach the 3 straight-back. If so, slice the 12 to (or in) the hole, bringing the CB up inside the 1 ball.

                  The 1-ball bank is possible. But if it's hit thin enough to make, then the CB won't be able to contact the 8.

                    The 3 is a straight in bank and with follow you shoot the 12 then the 0ne. Ghost is broke again.

                      If you draw enough off the 3 to protect against the 1 ball, and miss, you'll give up a bank on the 12, and the 3 will go back up table. That's one of the other reasons I like banking the 1 and nip drawing the CB into the 8, which seems almost automatic the way I read the pictures. A little inside draw off the 1 would ensure a good hit on the 8. Even if I miss, I'll have the 1 near my hole, the 12 is not a threat, and the 3 is still there on my side for a future bank shot after my opponent has to deal with the 1 ball right away.

                        Beatle nailed it. Anything else would be uncivilized.
                        Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

                              Why would you consider drawing the CB back that far? There's a good sized area for the CB where the 1 is out of play, and the 12 can't be banked (but it can be cut if the 3 pockets).
