Ghost: how did you come to leave the guy on the wrong side of the stack? Going all out to make a ball and get out behind it? Errant cue ball? Nasty lie of balls?

Just curious.

I do not believe you can get behind the 10 two rails of the six. What's more, try to spin that ball when you are jacked up is tough.

I would have a look at pocketing the 5 and goes three rails to get behind the 10 and protect my 6. Getting there off the 2 one rail in another possibility.

Thanks for your explanation, Bill. I have a tendency to sometimes duck these shots in favor of a shot where I can put a decent stroke down. I bank well, but due to my height, I also shoot over balls...

Hi, John. We had one of your boys in our room recently. I've forgotten his name, but he had just got off a month's service on a barge or boat. Nice gentleman.

With the score as it was, it is hard to believe he was going for that shot as a less risky bank would've been to one-rail that ball with the a loaded right CB.

I like your shot but the bridging is mighty awkward over three balls. The hit on the three is full enough that it looks like you'd have to get a pretty stiff punch on the CB to both walk it to the...

I'd probably look at banking the 13 and tripling him up on his pocketed ball, with emphasis on the CB.

First thing I'd do is walk to the head of the table and see where my "triple up zone" was...

I would have a look at kicking in the hanging ball and stacking the guy. Alternatively, depending on the score, I might kick it in and power up the stack.

2-railing the 5 and then billiarding in...

Well, technically, a "Dixie whistler" can be any straightback that is hit with speed. It needn't be the "Grady" bank. At least that's the meaning here in lil' ol' Western Kentucky.

Power shot on the 8, 3 rails around with the CB is one possibility. Hard to tell if the three-rail route is on.
