Great shot if you can confidently handle the limited access to the CB. Too tough for me.

You cant leave ike that kick on the 5 8.
When I looked at the photos thats exactly what I was going to suggest. Keith

I feel like jacked up... this might come off at a 90 degree tangent. I will have to take it to the table.
If the 8 ball is not there, I think I shoot this all day long.

I am coming thin off the five, opening those three balls up and going two rails into the stack. Much easier than the bank.

I honestly like Frank's shot but I also don't mind firing the 1 ball 3 rails and putting the cue ball up table.

I'm in agreement with Frank on this one. Looks like a enough room to get a good hit on whitey.

In this situation with that score Iím shooting my shot no matter whom Iím playing. As much as I admire Ike and his abilities Iím still shooting. Ike and I are no strangers in competition. I donít see much of a down side to the shot.
