  • It has taken me this long to figure out how to reply to a post, I don't mind change but I don't see any benefit to this other than it is different, maybe if I knew the problems it solved I would be more inclined to adapt....

    I also think the 7 can be banked past the 13 , but it takes a perfect hit, on any shot like that ,you should ask yourself , whats the worst thing that could happen , because if you are playing for more than 20 a game , it is usually what happens to most people. Those of you with a bouquet of 4 leaf...

    If I can't get to the bottom rail off the nine 1 combo I would use a half ball hit on the 7 and go down there, I don't like the shot , but I'm not shooting a shot that might cost me the game . He has no real great shots at his pocket , even if he comes off the balls and freezes me on the 14 or the b...

    Rail first and thin off the 3 to over near the nine if you can naturally get past the 11. If you can't, then ghosts shot. I like shooting the 3 into the 4 and making it, if you can draw over and miss the 11 and put him near his long rail . I would not use follow because you can either hit the 11 ...

    I would shoot straight at the head rail with however many tips of english it takes to come up behind those 3 balls with a 2 rail kick. But I practice these shots all the time , if you don't practice ,then " splash them".

  • I would bank the 8 ball just short of my side pocket 2 rails and come out so that he has no natural bank on the 1 but can back bank the 11 but the 8 ball is in play by my side pocket if he does. He can draw back and not leave me a cut, but the 8 being repositioned there is something to contend with,...

    replied to How today’s action went
    Seems to me you are learning how to play the game! I would certainly rather have 7 pennies up there, to indicate my opponent made a good shot and forced me to take a scratch , a few times, than to not have any pennies there , and he needs 1. Also, when you win a game like this, it affects most people...

    i would bank the 12 into the 14 and move the 3 to my side with 7 o clock not a draw stroke just rolling the ball thru the 3 and the cueball needs to be up a diamond or so to keep from leaving a good bank on the 2

  • Don't anybody open this thread except kentucky Bill

    So far we have 132 "Peekers" I bet you guys all got the same note on your report card every time, that I did . "Does not follow instructions well" My dad told me in the 10th grade, if he ever saw that note on a report card again, I would get the beating of my life, so being the clever chap I was,...

    This would be my shot also. The carom behind his balls from Miller is great , but I hate leaving dead balls to my opponents pocket.
    I almost always move them the first chance I get....

    This is a great wwyd but you are a little too far from the table , we can't see if he can just dink the 11 or 3 or even the 12 and freeze on something, which is usually what people do in a situation like this, I saw the shot off the 4 or 2 or whatever that ball is but it's too tough for me to shoot....
