I'll offer another shot here. Caveat is that I'm not playing Denis or Shane or anybody near that caliber.

The other consideration is that obviously I'm in the deep here, down 0-6, but the balls...

Another option

My choice would be to roll the 11 to the end rail, just to the left of the 14, softly letting the cue-ball freeze (or bump) on the underside/rightside of the 4 ball.

Even if the 4/1 open up...

It looks like the shot to bank in the 12 and carom into the 4 to make it may be available, in which case the 4 spots up for a shot at the win. Worst case is not pocketing the 4 and leaving a...

My unnecessary/redundant addition to this thread - is that Scott simply played much worse than his best a few years ago when he was beating up on the field.

He moved worse, pocketed worse, banked...

Thumbs up Knowledge nugget

Nugget alert!

Jerry, I think you've brought up this valuable principle in another thread as well. Crossing a ball and going uptable is a common shot. However, for me at least, I never thought...

Same pockets for both players

I think there is something to the notion that the poorer ball striker can get spooked by ultra tight pockets more easily, to his/her detriment. Which is the same as saying he's not comfortable...

I like thinning the one and going to the foot rail more than the aggressive shots in this spot.

An alternative shot that I like more is to pocket the 5 in the side and roll the cue to the long...

Bank the 3-6, with the 6 coming back into the 3 and pushing it and maybe more to your side. Drag the cue ball to the head rail doubled up.

Other than that, a soft bunt kick under the 7 to tie it...

What a room!

That is a fantastic pool room and table man, I'm with Cincy - overcome with extreme jealousy :)

Seems like this comes down to one question - did player B concede? If he did there is no debate. If he didn't, then player A is loser by raking. I don't think saying "I have three balls" is...

Give up?! it's not that bad ... soft kick behind the 1 and grind.

If the combo was a little tougher I'd make the 6 and try to roll the cue ball into the jaws of the upper right corner pocket.
