Default You vs. opponent 21

This is a wwyd that I put up a few years ago, and I thought I'd put it up again with all of the additional members that we have now...last time it was up we had some lively disagreeing on what was the right thing to do - especially between Dr. Billy and 'Freddy the Beard'

It's your shot --- your pocket is at the top left --- score is 7 to 4, you're ahead, and you're playing in a hill-hill tournament match against a strong player --- the pockets are 4-3/8" --- so wwyd - go for the win right now (shooting which ball?) or give him his 14ball? ----->

Against someone who moves about my speed I'm giving him his ball. Against someone that out-moves me (Ghost) I'm about 60/40 on rolling the 11 ball in so I shoot it and break Bruce's heart. 80% of the time if table is true I can put that in the jaws. With the 1 ball there it makes scratching behind my ball no good.

A good mover may never give me another better look.

I'm shooting the 11 straight in. I'm normally a B player at pocketing balls but for some odd reason long straight in shots off the rail i'm very confident in making

I'm shooting the straight-in, and not slow-rolling either. Comfortable stroke speed. I want it side-pocket high if I miss. I would love to make his ball for him, but I'm going to give up a nearly-free straight-back on the stripe in the middle if I do, so fire away!

Not a real big fan of any of the options here, so I'd have to shoot the 11 at pocket speed so if I missed it is sitting in my hole as a threat.

There is no need to shoot a tough shot here and lose if you miss. Make the 14 and go to the next inning.

I'm stroking the 11 straight in the hole for the cheese..if I miss, he is not winning from there so I still get another shot if I miss the 11.
