Default Truman Hogue vs. "Piggy Bank" Rogers 2001 D.C.C.

You see the score. It's Piggy's shot. What would you do?

Default Wow!

It probably dont get no worse than this. Knowing Piggy he did not try to play safe. I mighta took a scratch here. Just touch the q ball.

Otherwise rail first, very thinly off of the 3?, 7?... ball and hopefully go 3-4 rails back to the head rail.

Not kidding about taking a scratch.

Default tough spot.

What would be wrong with shooting the 7 straight in and leaving the cue near the chalk on the near end rail. A tough shot for sure but there aren't a lot of good shots here.

That shot and all its ramifications are not something you leave for a bank player. Bankers are familiar with and very comfortable with that cross side. Bankers are not afraid of that shot, and you would do well not to leave it.

What I did do was realize how, while humanly possible, was an unreasonable choice. If you are going to try for something that difficult you might as well shoot the straight back.

Try and visualize all the horrible things that could happen if you dont hit the shot perfect, including perfect speed.
