Default John vs. Steve 1 wwyd?

Looks a little slow on here, so here's another wwyd...

John's shot --- his pocket is at the bottom left --- John is ahead in balls 5-4 --- several good offensive shot choices available here --- wwyd? ----->

P.S. And hey Billy...try not to mistakenly get the order of the best two choices reversed like you did in the last wwyd...


P.S. I apologize for this slight brag...of a shooting trifecta that I've never done before...

Against Ike on Sunday, in the course of our session, I had a total of three 2-rail banks that I shot - they were all long rail to short rail banks - all were at a distance, and one was way off-angle...I made all three don't remember ever going 3 for 3 on 2-railers before.

Well I dont see a good kick so....
Bank the 5 to make it at a little more then pocket speed so it doesnt hang around if you miss.
Whitey should be blocked from 2 railing the 1 if you do miss.

2 rail the 12 stopping the cue ball right there. If yo play the correct speed and you miss the 12 should be hidden. Simple, safe and effective. K

Straight bank the 11 in, draw cb back to foot cushion and out parallel with the 5. If bank does not go then with the cb in this position the 5 will not bank past the 10 and the 10 can not be banked, and if you get the cb position just right then 13 can not be seen either! Whitey

its a diamond you should be able to flatten out that 11 and make it and run out.

if you cant then bank the 5 like said and give up the easier bank for it.

or 2 rail the ball up table if you have no heart and would rather leave safe than take a small chance for a loss and a big chance for a win.

looks like it sits perfect to bank the 11, stop right there and if you miss, its protected and if you make it you run out and win.

You're hill-hill in your Derby City match in this scenario - you are ahead 5-4 - does that make your choice here any different than if you were behind 5-4?
