I might like to one rail the 4 into the 8 drawing the cue ball to the long rail plus a bit of the short rail. Low right english.

There’s a big wall to hide behind, so the three ball combo might be good. 1-2-5

Three rail the four and drag the cueball back...hopefully avoiding the kiss.

This is my first and most likely selected shot from your WWGD series.

I would back-cut the 4 ball using pocket speed, but plenty of draw and a bit of left on the cue ball. My two main objectives with this shot would be to put another ball down by my hole and leave my opponent with hopefully a game losing decision.

I've left a very low percentage back cut for the other player, he also has to decide if he just going to slow roll it and hope to duck behind my up rail cluster, or hit the one ball firmly with confidence and barrel though my cluster.

That simple 4 ball shot should lead to 3-5 balls on anything he does aggressively and fails.

Bank the 4 just above the side pocket and then to the 5 ball that's by your pocket to make the 4. Draw the cue ball to the side rail and back out even with the one.

Cut the 4 directly to your pocket with your best soft left draw to return the cue ball to about where it is. It looks like it might actually fit, but just avoid hitting the 13.

Larry, you don't like hitting it a bit harder and letting the 4 go three more rails toward your pocket??

I like cutting the 4 ball towards the 9 ball here. Looks like a lot of good things can happen with little downside. Load the cb up with low left hand spin and pinch draw your cb.
