Since nothing goes in the opponent's pocket, Ben's shot is a good one. In order to make the 1, a guy probably has to use pretty fair speed on the shot. It looks like the CB can miss the 2 ball, but...

There are a couple of other dink safeties, like coming off the right of the 5 ball with right spin to take out the 4 ball.

If I felt desperate I might cut the 7 into the 5-2 kiss shot. The 2...

I'd probably jack up and bump over the 3, 12 & 5 my way. None of those balls left lined up are makeable or able to be combo'd for the opponent, and now there are plenty of soldiers by my hole to...

That's the best shot because the safety puts the opponent into deep trouble, and, as others have pointed out, it breaks up that threatening 15-4 wired combo.

Never saw a set like that. There are 23 OBs. Even Baseball Pool uses only 21 balls. Wonder if it could be some combination of pool & snooker? I'm guessing the extra 8 balls are red, but there's...

I thought about coming off the 12 too-- so as to kick the 3 from behind and drive it over to disturb that useless 1-9 cluster.

But if the angle wasn't there, I might take a swing at the 10 ball...

Whitey, I think it's nice of you to take the time to make the videos that you post. Nothing like someone showing a shot in real time.

I'm glad that the Bank Pool forum keeps on ticking. I was...

Yeah, the shot is not ideal. I'd have to take it to the table to see. But discussing purely defensive shots, it has some merit. I like following the 8 ball too, but it looks to me aimed straight...

Update: I went back to the table last night, and was able to make the shot. I even made it twice in a row, then missed, then made it again. I think when missing it, I was shooting the OB too wide....

Right you are, my friend. I'd forgotten that you'd posted that. I'd try to hit it in such a way as to not leave a bank on the 10, but with the CB closest to the diagonal from the pocket to the foot...

Nice shots, Whitey. Try as I might I cannot make that "Grady twist-back bank" on my Diamond Pro Am. I'd be curious if there's anyone on the site who made that shot on a modern Diamond table. I can...

Another defensive shot which no one has mentioned is to simply roll the CB off the right of the 10 ball (probably about a 1/2 ball hit). The 10 rolls up to or near the cluster, while the CB stays in...

I don't know if the 5 & 9 (1?) are frozen, but if I were feeling frisky there are two kicks worth considering.

The first is the CB 2 rails out of your corner, which would be shot to contact the...

Tried that shot several times without much luck. I'm guessing the shot is more makeable on a Crown-- or on something other than a Diamond. I think Grady's tapes were all on Crowns. Haven't seen...

That's a strong second in a tough crowd, bro! But running out of gas is a real factor.

Mitch, a good shooter like you would probably have good success pocketing the 1 with high left, and getting shape on the 6.
