    I agree with you Keith that you can overcome being down and be patient hoping they mess up or leave you an easier shot but thing is, in this layout, i am not sure what that would be?

    They old saying is, if the saftey is just as hard as the shot, shoot the shot!

    It doesn't look like from the picture you can get on or behind the 10 ball or sure, that would be the shot for sure, but looks like you come up short. Best you can do from there is get to the long rail and hope to not sell out a cross corner.

    Rod's 1 railer and Jimmy's 2 railer are both good 2 way shots if are confident you can control the CB speed, but other than that, I don't see a real good defensive options that I like.

    I am a pretty defensive player I think but here imma shootin!

    EDIT - looking at this puzzle a little more another option I may try to to shoot the 14 kind of straight ahead, cutting it a little bit into the 6, playing the 14 towards my pocket and follow the CB up table to long rail then rest on head and leave him straight in on 8 and long. I like these shots as well (banking balls off of caroms)

      With the ball count advantage that my opponent has he will try to protect that lead and not take a chance with a long shot if I can position that bank shot near my hole. He will most like play off that ball. Maybe on my next turn I will have a better opportunity. This might be my choice using right English.

        you can masse around that 5-3 here and get behind the 10. you may even knock in the 10. cb takes off so much to the right off the rail it is not even a hard hit to accomplish, big buffer there.

        or, you can bunt around with your thumb up your ass and lose the game (to a good player anyway).

          It's early in the game..no reason to panic. Hope/wait for an unforced error by your opponent.

          The balls are laying such that you can run a bunch if he messes up.
          Absolutely, if you can get there. Looks like the green ball is in the way though.

            There is a good 3/4 rail kick to end under the 10.

            A's long rail-head rail-B's long rail. Hit the 10 or go under it.

            Yes I think I can walk to the table and do this 1st try.
            Nuke has seen me kick. Tx One Pocket has seen it. Pilot has seen it.

            When you play poor position , you learn to kick and fullcue jump

              This is Tony Chohan's shot. Bank the stripe and go four rails under the balls along the foot rail.

                  the 5 off the three to make the 12 seems so good here it would be hard to turn down . I don't think it is one of those shots you can follow behind the balls in opponents corner but you could draw the ball to the end rail

                    I would shoot the stripe straight on and wedge the cue ball between the 3 & 5.

                          I don't know how to diagram maybe someone will put it up but here's my shot. I don't know what ball it is, its the blueish/greenish ball im hitting it into the 1 ball and then the 1 ball into the 8 ball. Im hitting into the ball thickly sending those three balls toward the side rail and im playing the cue ball to the side rail at or just above the 1st diamond. The three balls that I sent toward the side rail make them pretty much unbankable because the banking lane is now blocked by the other 2 balls. My opponent has no good offensive shot and Im hoping when I get back to the table Ill have a better position that will let me begin to get out of the trap.

                            If I could thin off the 10? stripe in front of me and roll over on his rail I might get the 10 in the way of the 8 ball bank return and be ok.
                            I hate to shoot give up shots at a blocked hole, if anything went I would be shooting .
                            The cut carom someone suggested might be a real option here . But it would have to have a chance of going in , not just getting close to the hole. I used to shoot those 2 rail banks and take the cueball around 3 rails , but if you aren't in dead punch they usually go awry.
