    Hey Nostradamus....While you're at it, would you mind giving me some lotto numbers for todays game?....

        Hanging the seven will make the bank on the ten to the seven an easy shot. After that I would make the ten and try to open up the stack, making sure that I don't hook myself on the 15 ball.
        That's the way I like it too, unless Ghost's shot is on.

            I like this shot allot,

            It hits the better side of the lined up balls to make the nine.

            Hey, if you're gonna play to get out do it 100%.

            Definitely worth taking a look at this option.

            If you played into the other side of the 6-13 with the 7 or the cue ball you might throw the ball into the rail and miss the 9... that would suck.

              Come on Ghost, this shot comes up regularly. After I posted this shot I set it up and made the 9 on the first attempt, took out the 15 and life is good

                And by the way Ghost, that 2 rail kick at those 3 balls in that other thread is the second worst shot, next to the one Efren shot. I set that one up and banked the 10 ball into the 5 and ran out

                  I think I like tsk7878's shot better.
                  Rod.
                  P.S. I'm definitely shooting it from my keyboard.

                    lets get serious.

                    Lets not forget what we have learned about playing the score, and playing a somewhat controlled game. Providing there aren't any wired balls in the stack, which is hard to determine from my computer screen, we need to get a better grasp on the situation that presents itself. If I see it right Nick should play the combination 7 into the 9 ball. But how he plays it is the question, allow me to give you a possible perspective on how he may be thinking. He leads in the score one to zero, so there is no urgency to try and force something that is risky. He sees that if he plays the combo and controls the 7 ball he will be leading three to zero and will have an opportunity to do something from there.It looks like if he rolls the 7 ball the cue ball will strike the 14 ball, or narrowly miss it. If he feels that the cue ball will strike the 14 ball he could possibly loosen the 5 ball for another ball that he may be able to pocket on a later shot. But still he must play a controlled game by rolling at the 7 ball combo, ensuring himself of controlling the 7 ball

                    Playing with this understanding you not only are playing the score, but you're applying pressure on your opponent, sending the message that you're not going to give anything away. All along building confidence in your ability to play a solid game.

                    As I have obviously stated, the important part of Nicks shot is controlling the 7 ball. Doing that will allow Nick to either further his run, or clear Fusco's pocket leading three to zero.

                      The 7-9 combo makes sense. The QB will open up those two balls below the 7 and put them in play for opponent.

                            There's a chance of that happening, can't really tell for sure, but if not he could possibly roll softly into the 10 ball for some good soft action. Must be mindful of not scratching after contacting the 10 ball, which is a possibility.

                              If you can soft roll into the ten after the seven nine combo then you'll have a twelve seven combo and the game. However it does not appear that you can hit the ten nor the 14 ball after striking the seven ball. Good to see you back and posting.

                                It looks to be going in that direction, could possibly go in between the 10 and 15 balls If so Nick may have to elevate to avoid the possible scratch. By doing that he may lose control of the 7 ball, but then he could possibly make them both (7 and 9 balls) on the same shot, using draw on the cue ball.
