  • 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....

    Sounds like you have played Bernie Pettipiece. He will put you behind those balls that don't go in your pocket, until most people shoot them away themselves in disgust....
