Default Ghost vs. Alex 4

How's your defensive game?

Alex's shot --- the ball score is 6-6, both going to 8 --- Alex's pocket is at the bottom left --- Alex is in a little trouble here - he's frozen on the foot rail and he needs to find a shot whereby he won't leave me either a cut shot, a one rail, a two rail, or a three rail bank.....wwyd? >>>

I like shooting straight at the 5 to move the 8 to my side and roll the cb on top of the 12. The only thing I can see! Lol

What about taking a foul and leaving you up by the corner pocket?

Trying to bank the spotted ball from there would be risky that thin.. the cue ball would be moving and may run into the 5 or 8.
Cutting it towards your hole i feel like you'd also be in danger of running two or three rails into those balls.
I feel like i'd definitely like my next shot from there better than the current one.

I can't tell if the angle is there, but I'd look at coming off the right side of the 5 ball, to the rail, and rolling the CB up against the 8. If it's there it's a killer shot.

But if the angle is wrong, I like Frank's shot.

I had the same basic idea, but bringing the cue farther down table. Your way could leave some sort of return combo or carom bank shot. For example, depending on where the 5 stops, it might be possible for the opponent to send the 5 and 8 toward his hole.
