Thumbs up WWYD vs WMCB

What Would You Do....vs....Whys My Choice Bad

I think this aspect of shot choice is of Equal importance.

Personally, I'd enjoy hearing others viewpoints from this perspective as much as....what I should of done.

Many on here think 4, 5 or more shots ahead.

Knowing this, would help myself and others immensely.

Ghost vs. John 44 wwyd? Thread

My post, thread #20

Bank the five to the foot rail, my side, juice cue ball with high... l/s 9 o'clock spin, killing/following and freezing whitey on the head rail. 5 should land close to my pocket

....if I can bank the 5 to the foot rail, why would this not be a good shot?

1. How do you get the 5 to the foot rail?

2. Banking the 4 one rail into the 12 doesnít do much except open a bank lane for your opponent.

3. Make the 5, get the cue ball on the head rail. The 5 spots up and is now makable. I welcome anyone to shoot the 8 from there. Your in a little bit of a bind from there.

4. Try not to shoot stupid shot that donít accomplish much, or put pressure on your opponent.

Not sure how you can do this, Bill, unless.....are you maybe shooting at the wrong hole?

Looks like a really good move to me , you might even rub the {2 or 4 }balls and make it!

Frozen on the rail cueball would be number 1 in case he wants to take a whack at something and
pocket speed would be my second goal.

Unless we are shooting at the wrong hole , which on my part, would not surprise me in the least .

With l/d shafts, adding allot of 9'oclock gearing to the 5, allows the cue ball to move slowly too the rail and the gearing forward speed hitting the 5 would have it completely miss the pocket tit and bank down table. Being so close to the 5, and with the 5 Off the rail, I could easily miss the 5 with the cue ball. Your not cutting the 5, the gearing transfer to the five causes the 5 to cut....ie widen it's outward angle. Try it I dare you, you might learn something.
So if I do get the 5 to the foot rail, with the cue ball frozen to the head rail, would my position be Better than the shot that was chosen to be the preferred one? If not Why NOT? WMCB
That's what I want to know.
