  • Wwyd late game

    CB is near your pocket. WWYD if you needed 1. WWYD if you needed 2.

    If I need 1 I am back cut banking that 10 once across.

    If I need 2 I am shooting the 10 at the headrail a 1/2 diamond from the farthest corner.

    Trying to leave whitey near the rail, all 3 balls in a line.

      Well, why should I lie about it? If I need one I will drive the two stripes together gently. If I need them both I will shoot the same shot, but with more speed, to leave both playable in the upper right quadrant. In each case I will try to leave Jojo as near as possible to where he is now. In other words I will give my man a chance to make an error. Sometime he do.
      If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

        I would just float the 10 into his long rail near the side pocket and try to get the 2 balls close together, with the 10 between me and the 12 ball.

            I always liked three railing this ball to my side pocket if I need 1 and the combo if I need two trying to make both and freeze one the low rail

              Chris, I like the 3 rail shot on the 10, especially if I can keep it off the long rail far enough that there is maybe only a tough 2 railer for my opponent when I leave the CB near his pocket, and I'd probably do it whether I need one or both, but I don't know what you mean about the combo and trying to make both balls. Can you give more detail about that shot?

                If I need two, I really don't want to move that 10, so if there is room to kick one rail at the 12 off opp's long rail just before the side pocket ( 2-3 tips left) to catch about 1/3 of the 12, that's what I'd do. I'll probably leave a 3-railer but I don't think he can shoot it with my 10 where it is.

                  The cue ball is near my pocket, the 10-ball is close to my pocket, and the 12-ball is near the side pocket on my opponent's side of the table.

                  Question #1: WWID if I needed one ball.
                  Question #2: WWID if I needed two balls.


                  I do not have a shot capable of working successfully to my pocket with either object ball remaining on the table. Consequently, I would play defensively whether I needed one ball or two balls.

                  In reference to both posted questions, I would shoot the same shot. I would select to roll the 10-ball before the side pocket to bounce off the long rail by the 12-ball and attempt to get them as close together as possible. The provided photo of where the cue ball is in relation to the 10-ball appears in the execution of my shot on the 10-ball that I can move the cue ball approximately 10 inches up table that would nullify any viable three cushion bank on the 12-ball by my opponent. Yes, I'm grinding. I would expect that my opponent's next shot will be equally as oppressive, tedious, and seemingly without end as mine.

                    If I didnt like that type bank I would agree.

                    If I need 2 I wouldnt shoot the bank that I like because I dont like the shot I am left after I pocket the 10.

                      looks to me like the angle is almost perfect to combo the ten into the 15 side and make the 10 in the top corner while controlling the cue ball on the low rail

                        Why would you want to make the 10 in the top corner? Your hole is the one nearest the cue ball. Maybe you're shooting at the wrong hole.

                            Michael (Unoperro), I like this option for both instances.
                            And, if you do happen to pocket the 10 ball in corner, the cue is in a very
                            good spot near the rail and the opponent's pocket.

                            When I saw your response, I was shocked, knowing your game and imagination. VERY conservative for you.

                              the person needing two wants to have both balls in play. so if you only need one you must be very careful about shooting a shot that can leave him a bank where he only has to get back up table to maybe get out.

                              so shooting at your pocket or towards it has to have a big chance of making it or hanging it to be viable.
