I didnt even consider caroming his ball in. It wasn't hanging but you opened my eyes up to this shot... smart thinking.

shouldnt there be more balls on the table.
I was wondering about this too. I am assuming with a 12-6 game, that is a long count, so Fats would have spotted his first two balls, effectively playing 10-6 from there on out, correct? So if he did that and factored that in, then the score Fats said, 5-3 his favor, leaves him needing 5 and Ray needing 3 which does add up right looking at the seven balls left on the table. That is not a bad score situation for Fats, but obviously the table situation favors Ray a lot.

Given that, I might kick softly to the bottom rail over near the 14, aiming between the 8 and the side pocket basically. It looks too dangerous to me to try to kick out the 14 from there, but I'd like to lol.

You guys are really coming up with some good options. I normally shoot really fast regardless of safe or offense, but I obviously took some time here even to capture pictures.

It's always nice tah see ones perspective compared to others.

My choice would be determined First by what I could or could Not do, safely with the 8 using inside spin. If I could shoot the 8 and, come long rail/short rail & drop to about the middle of the foot rail, then that's a go. And if I missed the 8 , my ball speed would not leave it near my pocket for a return bank. If I can get whitey correctly to the foot rail and pocket that 8, I will bank that ball by his hole into my pocket.

Anyone brazen enough to cut the 6 in and z the cue ball down to end rail? Or is that too touchy?

yea i was writing 12 to 6 and thinking 14 to 6, so the ball count is right. my blip.

still giving someone that spot i dont think its the right spot if he can run 3 from that spot 85% of the time, and looking at the ball positions he seems to move well. thats just a comment.

it seems you can cut the 6 and keep him doubled or trippled up well enough so I don't dis like that at all

Come on, Fats. I used to know a girl who behaved like this - I finally had to stop calling her.

This would be my choice as well. No need to gamble from this position, especially considering how the ball are positioned. Floating down to the bottom rail and positioning the 9ball on your side will offer you the best chance of getting away from this threatening situation. IMO
