    Let's see, there is the 8ball combo fly the qb around the table and try to get it behind the 10 or draw the qb to the 9.

    Or the 9-6 combo freezing the qb to the pink ball.

    Not sure if the three rail kick behind the 10 is open.

      I will kick off the foot rail into the 2 ball, sending the cb from there to the long rail on Ike's side. Easy as rice krispies - snack, popple, crap! Much better than what Earl is about to do.
      If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

        V-Man,

        It's extremely rare that I comment in the shot choice threads that I post but I'll tell you one thing; You ain't shooting that shot!!! Cueball goes right into the 14 or 10.

          Yeah, CD, I guess you're right. To make it work, I had to move the 2 ball away from the rail by a ball width plus about 2 inches, more than in the picture. But it was a nice thought. I guess this means no cookie for me, but I can get to a good place by kicking off the head rail, so that's what I will do. It's a natural, off the center diamond.

            It looks like Earl might have a little window to kick behind the stripe by Ike's pocket. If so, ideally a little left english to drop behind those two stripes.

              The 10 ball is Ikes main threat, I like kicking to the side rail and then into the 10 ball. Not to hard but enough to move it on your side. With a good hit on the 10 you might even leave the cue ball behind the 14 ball. Keith

                I would do a simple kick through the gap into a combo tiki to make a ball, run out, rack em up and play anuthern. No problems. Easy shot...

                  I want to kick and leave him on/under/behind the 10. I'm not convinced there is enough room betwen the balls to do that off the long rail, but if there is then I will go that way. If not, then 2-3 rails off the head rail. Even if I foul that looks like the best place to leave the cb, especially if I can nuzzle it under the 10.

                    I would shoot at the 1 ball and draw the cue ball down near his pocket.

                    Not a difficult shot for a 9 ball player like Earl.

                      if the lane is open i would shoot steves shot
                      if not
                      i think the lanes for the standard 3-4 rail kick are not available or really low margin for error so i would come off the head rail
                      first if i were earl id fix my collar............

                        since this is the weii table i would probably take a scratch and leave him like this frozen and underneath the 10 so he cant see the 1 or fourteen or anything else but foot rail and side rail....

                          I would rate that as the most powerful shot, but also the one that requires the most execution.

                          Not as hard as it might look, but still touchy.

                            I think he needs to do something simple here. I like the soft kick on the 10 (I know he wont do that though lol).

                            I also kinda like just hitting the one and pulling up on the rail a diamond. I'd shoot the kick above though.

                              That was my first thought. And I agree (for me at least) it would be a bit "touchy". I'd shoot it anyway.
