Beatle,

I agree. This is a dangerous position.

I think I would take a different approach and try to get out safely.

I would hit the left side of the 7 ball with Low Left English attempting to spin the 7 as far over to my side as possible. At the same time killing the cue ball as close to the middle of the end rail as I could.

That's it. You give up some positional advantage but you avoid scratching and make it difficult for your opponent in the next inning.

Still a tough shot.

depending how much toward the middle diamond the cue ball goes
the cut for the bank is pretty thin and for me not a gimme
the cueball will be hot off the thin hit and the 10 ball is still makeable
might want to think twice about shooting it

Funny thing, i like that little thin cut bank on the 7 a lot. Thats why it was my first choice here. I'm playing in the Memphis my first match and its hill hill i need one and he needs three. Two of the balls are out of play and the ball is laying by his hole just like this one from just about the same exact position with the cue ball. I think half the room is watching our match..I shoot it and hit it bad and make it right in his hole...lol I don't think i've ever done that.Those tight pockets seemed to get much tighter after that and i ended up losing...lol I guess i'll never learn because i would shoot it again. Just call me tin cup..
