Well, if you move the 12 and freeze on the 3, which Peter is capable of achieving (not 100% of course), then the answer is likely 2 opponent balls moved. Not bad for one shot.

Looks like you can play the 4 at the 8 with a little speed. Follow the cue to the long rail. If the 4 hits the 8 reasonably close to making it, then the 4 should come up and loosen up the 15/12/10....

Tough spot! Crossover bank the 9 playing 100% to leave the CB on the headrail (long rail then short rail). The 8-ball shot is not free and the 6 may not go. The 9 should end up in a helpful spot.

Looking at the 2-railer, I'm pretty sure that I can get the CB to the long rail but would have to be at the table to know for sure. And the 13 ball bank is pretty good.

Here's one more...

Doc and I were advocating shooting with right to get the CB to the long rail. That way, the 11 is not free.

This is 100% what I saw and why. I like banking the 13 into the 15, too, but the 2-rail cue ball path is a little fraught though it is there.

I'll go anywhere, and hope to be in better playing shape in 2020! 16 tables is a big plus, but we can make do as needed I'm sure.

I like this -- very reliable and especially tough if you pull the cueball back 4" to be besides the 7. Just don't overdraw it.

Mortals like me need another half inch off the rail to try that. Chip may not!

Tough one. I'd probably send the cue on the natural 3-rail path to my pocket, which is conveniently lined up with the back of the 5 ball. Go long/short/long and behind the 5. Reasonably large target...

This is simple and saves time. I'll join the crowd in voting for it! It's not what we did in Philly, but it makes a lot of sense. (Still with the option for the opponent to check the rack.)

Good point.

Also, when matching up, you need to worry about both the number of games played and the number that you win, since most people don't play till they drop and pool halls close. If you...
