    If you thin the ball now , it's probably going to disturb the 15 or leave a bank and that's no good. The kick bank is real fun, but I have to believe the odds are more than 4 to 1 you lose instead of win, if you shoot it.
    I say that, because anything besides hanging the ball up or making it should leave a bank ,unless you really whack it to make it go back up table if you miss , then the power of the hit comes into play.
    This strategy is ok if you've decided that it is too dangerous to move any of those balls from here, although you could be accused of being a slow player for lengthening the game like that.

    Myself, after we've lined up four more balls on the spot, so now there are six there, I will shoot the two rail kick out of his corner moving most of those balls to my side and putting him up table on his side where he could be in big trouble.

      ive found for me anyway that the two rail kick out of the side is a great shot. but i personally need three or more balls to shoot it effectively..

      but whatever you do it is going to have a chance of risk.

          If the balls are only a 16th of an inch apart.
          If you hit them hard enough to get to the side rail you will probably hit the 15 with the one, hit them hard enough to get to the bottom rail and the 1 has a real good chance of having caromed over toward his pocket !
          How would you like them apples?
          For comparison a 16th of an inch is really close to the width of a toothpick.
          If you can do, all you say you can with the shot, and not disturb that 15 ball , I wasted all that time in ninth grade for nothing.

            I am kicking at the 15 ball with medium speed. My percentages of catching the left side of the 15 ball are pretty good and dont have to sell out anything offensive for my opponent. There is no way that I am opening up the 2 balls on the spot from here.

                Side note: this is the first time someone has selected my shot in years 😂
                Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

                  I also, prefer being on the l/s of the 15 ball.

                    Good thing I had a good night sleep to spot the right solution.

                      Now Im not criticizing anyone, but its amazing how good so many players are that they can kick the length of the table, come off the bottom rail and hit the correct side of an object ball at the speed need to the combo a ball 2 lengths of the table. On top of that they only gt a single try at it. There is also the risk of losing the game if you don't hit that correct side of the object ball. Great shooting! K

                          If that kick combo bank on the 5 is on,at least its far enough from the cushion that throw shouldnt be a issue.

                          I am 1 rail kicking the 15 at about the speed to lag 3 rails to the side pocket. If you hit it right whitey should stay on the good side of the 1 and 5.

                                Your right, but the way Hendy put it, kicking at the 15 softly. I may end up owing a ball, but will still be in the game. __________________

                                Any player here can lag Near the foot rail ball and guarantee they will be on the l/s of that ball.

                                What I heard John really say was this...."table position is waaaaaaaaaaaaay more important than spotting a ball". l
