Bank pool stategy is not so much different than one pocket. One of the main things you want to do in both games is have enough balls in play in order to get out, and conversely, if you are ahead you want to make sure there are not enough balls in play in order for your oppo to get out.

This situation is an automatic.

Quit while you are behind, Hacker. You're swimming out to deep water. Remember, I am watching. There is no "professor" capable of marking my grades.

I have to make this brief. I used up a little too much brainpower responding to my old pal, SJD, who impugned my integrity again.

Briefly, you need 4 balls to win. There are only 3 make able balls on the table. He only needs 2 balls to win. He can win and you cant. Case closed. Therefore, the only shot is rail first on the pink (4?) ball with speed. The cue ball goes 4 rails and back to the head rail. Ball gets spotted, now you can win too. At worst you will leave a 2 in the side or a tricky straight back on those balls on the head rail. I would address more issues, your choice, etc. but Dickbrain drained my creative juices.

Now you are learning, with that Master Beard stuff.

You are right, I thought I had the lead.

Tis' true OPH...I thought about that as well but this hypothetical situation (all 5 balls on the spot & you up table) would probably become a long shot as the caliber of your opponent rises...main reason would be Fred's opening line regarding strategy. If I'm Tony after dropping the 4 ball, I am not even considering putting more balls back in play or opening another pocket. However, there is certainly a contingent of players that would oblige you and continue 'ducking' by placing more bullets on the spot.

To address the 3 straight back - in either pocket - certainly does appear free if hit well but man oh man, lord knows I've attempted this shot a multitude of times but unfortunately, with a multitude of results as well. If hit with any firmness, I could foresee either a scratch, pocketing the 1 or 4, or disturbing the 6 - 8...you'd just pray that it wasn't a combination of 2 or all 3 of these game changing scenarios!!! I personally would be a bit too concerned with the accuracy of the hit, with the score & layout as it sits, to undertake this option.

-Dave

This is the layout just before Fargo spotted up the 3 ball that he just pocketed. I should've posted this with the other pic. It's the only other pic of the 6 & 8.

I can't believe no one has picked the right shot yet.I saw the shot even before Dennis put up the second pic.As soon as i got to the table i wouldn't be looking at anything else but shooting that 6 into the 8 and knocking them both down table and sticking the cball right there on the rail.
Best shot by far in this situation with the score as it is.

PS: I hate to brag but.. I have won every single full rack bank tourny since the late 80's... and still counting. Just thought i would throw this out there
