    It is hard to pick the cb spot in these pics, but I might just pocket the 2 and leaving him doubled or tripled up on his hanger and on the rail. What id also be looking to shoot, maybe a shot or two down the line, is that 7 15 combo and dropping all the way down on the rail. I like that shot but he seems a little flat on it here.

      There is a good chance to come off the 8, just hard enough to make or nudge out that corner ball and leave the CB in the jaws

        If Parica can see enough of the 7 ball to play the 7-15 ball combination with a soft roll that's the shot I would shoot. All that's needed with this choice is to move the 15 ball close to his pocket and open up his side. There's a built in safety with this choice if hit any where near decent, plus you can pocket the 15 ball as a bonus. If available, any other shot would be uncivilized.

          One shot...

          .....would be to cross the two softly and hide the CB behind it by the top rail.....nice puzzle,cheers,Bob

            If that combo doesn't go, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't, Parica might billiard the one off the 5/9 and send the cue ball towards Grady's hole. He's gotta shoot at something here, even if it's straight up in the air. The balls are laying WAY too good for Grady to just try to double him up somewhere.

              I would not be interested in any shot that does not move the ball in the jaws of Grady's pocket. JTP's shot, a kiss off the 8 ball, looks like my first choice. If not, then it looks like I could kick behind it off the short rail, thinning the stripe and then hitting the 10 with the cueball. It would leave a bank, so it is only an emergency idea, but I'm not going to leave the hanger where it is.

              All Grady needs here is a place to start. This could be a short game if you let him have one.
              If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

                Finally, a voice of reason. If I was staking Parica and he didnt fire all out at the 1 ball, that would end my participation in this match. There is even a possibility that he could get safe by coming under the balls by Gradys pocket. Whether he can get safe or not is meaningless anyway. He must go for the 1 ball.

                I would shoot this myself, in my present condition even. What price do you think you could lay that Parica would miss the 1 ball? 7 to 5? 3 to 2? He would keep you broke with those odds.

                I keep leaking, what to me is on the last page of the Secret One Pocket Handbook and it usually gets vilified and ignored. No skin off my nose. I dont need to learn it.

                I learned this from watching great jail breakers like Bugs, Ronnie, Kelly, Artie B, and Eddie Taylor. One and all I am sure they would pop at the one in this spot. Seen 'em do it too many times.

                I should post the layout that Artie ran 8 and out on Jersey Red on. Red had 15 balls surrounding his hole. After that game Red was a cooked goose.

                I have naturally forgotten how to post a WEI table again. Here is the link, however.

                Artie sliced in the 15 and the cue ball worked its way through all the balls and ended up in front of Red's pocket with all the balls open and moved over to Artie's side.

                  Here's your layout Freddy. It doesn't look like a carom shot though?

                    Dennis, I only actually remember the exact postion of the 15 ball and the cue ball. If I left a carom option out there, ignore it. The point of the shot was the thin cut with the high powered cue ball working its way thru the balls on Red's side.

                      I'm finding....

                      ....it hard to go all out on a shot like the 1 ball.Its 75-25 at best Im guessing.Let me ask this.Would you rather be shooting or would you rather your opponent was shooting?I like the shot some but I'm surprised Freddie would much at all.I like surprises so thanks,Jack

                        The 1 off the five is a big carom, with a good chance of getting and staying close if it misses. Cueball can carom off the high ball on opponents side and take out the hanger.

                          I'm cutting in the 1 ball.

                          Any other shot is a give away.

                          Give yourself a chance to win.

                              You guys have me figured all wrong. I am only a super squeezer when the game is even, or if I am ahead. When I am behind I start looking for moon shots.
