Default Trolling For Egomaniac-Contrarians

Had this situation come up the other day....I had pocket A and needed 3 balls to win...

I first banked the 1 cross-corner, played shape for the 3, then got on the 13, and I was out...

Should I maybe have played this differently?...I'm sure there are a couple of posters on the forum (not mentioning any names) that see a better plan here, that they can show me...looking forward to your valued input......


...Ghost...

PS, I have a side-bet with my cat, as to who will be the first jokester to post that I was supposed to have three-railed the 3ball, for my first shot, and then banked the 1 cross-corner....fair gambler that I am, I let my cat have first pick......I'll disclose who we both picked later.

Ghost -- you mean banked the 1 and played shape for the 3, right?

Hell... Tom Cruise could tell you that the 1 ball bank has more kiss written all over it, then Gene Simmons has had groupies.

So, I fired up my ole one pocket brain and instantly came up with your run out on Page 1 and Page 2 of this here WEI table.

I don't know what I might win for giving you guys insight into one of the greatest one pocket minds of all time, but let's just say this one is a freebie for ya"ll.

Clearly the 3 ball is cut-able into your hole Why bank one in when you can shoot one straight in

My cat is anxiously waiting to see all replies...he keeps bugging me to check the replies every 5 minutes...

Could be because if he wins, he gets a large chunk of the New York strip steak that I'm cooking for dinner tonight...and also he made me agrree that if he wins, I'll go to the animal shelter and bring home a very young (he's kinda like the Beard in this respect), gorgeous, fluffy, girl-cat, for him (preferably in heat, but like his master, he feels that he can sweet-talk her even if she's not in heat)......

PS, And he requested, if possible, a Siamese....just like all of us guys - he likes those asian girls....

Wasn't this posted by an Egomanic/Contrarian?

I'm confused. Even I could get out 50% of the time on this one. Prop bet?

Ghost, i kind of like the way you played the table. I would offer a possible different solution, how about banking the 1 with some speed and draw. I want the cue ball to get up around the top 1/4 of the table this way if i missed the bank i would not sell out the simple bank on the 3 ball. From there i would play the 13 down the rail and come across for the 3. Again as i said i did like your pattern but i think this has some merits also. Sappo
