I've played people who will get the thin hit on the spotted ball and now they have five balls on their side and I'm stuck to the far bumper. Or they make the ball.

I like rolling through the 12 to leave the cue ball stuck on the back of the 3. It looks like that might also move the 5 away. He has all the playable balls near his pocket and that makes me nervous....
