Plenty of room to comfortably draw back towards his pocket or maybe half a diamond up the long rail. Might be hard to not go a tad long and leave the two railer off the spot, but better than coming up short and leaving a cross.
I was 50/50 on deciding whether to shoot the billiard or to kick in the 11....I finally picked the billiard = pocketing the 11 with the cueball going 3 rails to end up above Ray's pocket - the shot turned out well...also...
Ray is primarily a rotation/straight pool player still learning One Pocket, so after the game he wanted me to show him how the kick shot into the 11 would have worked out, so I set the 11 up and shot it that way - that shot also produced a good result...here's pics of both shot results. >>>
the first result I would two rail the ball but short jst to my side pocket and play the cue ball froze to the first diamond on the short rail
the second result I think bank the ball to the cent diamond of the short rail and play speed to freeze the cue ball on the end rail. not sure which result feels stronger but both are way better than the 11 in the pocket where you where. Great wwd as usual ghost ty
