whenever this comes up good players always just leave the cb there and do the tap battle. hard to imagine they are all wrong.

That's the shot most good players would play.
Raphael Martinez might jack up and go off the rail above those 2 balls in his pocket and go over and hit that ball out of the opponents hole toward his and stick you on the pack.
When I think imagination at one pocket , he is right up there at the top .
His only problem was, he never thought he would miss anything.

Especially if the cue ball is not frozen, and you freeze it on your opening shot.

Playing tricky tack with the five ball will give him a chance to find a way to strike the five ball to advance both the 6 and 13 balls toward his pocket.

Give him the 7 ball and go from there.

To "go short" or to "go long." My initial shot would be to "go short." That is to nudge the cue ball off the 5-ball while attempting to freeze the cue ball to the rail. If the cue ball does not freeze on the rail but my opponent is successful in his attempt to freeze the cue ball on the rail then my second shot would be to "go long." Depending on the angle that the cue ball lays, I would either send the cue ball down table to the end rail and attempt to keep it as straight as possible to the 7-ball or go three rails toward the 13-ball. Most likely both shots to "go long" will carry the probable penalty of a scratch (not striking an object ball).
