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

Anyone who cannot bank the 1 in, and get shape on the 3 from there...should never wager a dime on 1P. There is NO kiss...Any decent banker could actually hold it up too much, even on a dry table.(sorry Greg...right John ?)

And the correct phraseology is "egomaniacAL" contrarion. If you look up that word in Webster's...you will see three pictures. Miriam just could not decide between the three gentlemen [sic] he portrayed...I however, have my personal favorite.. (clue; they all reside in Chicago)

I am waiting to respond to this ego challenge until after I am sure that Ghost will not move the balls. He has already edited the original text once.

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.

So ...... just how many cows has your cat beaten you out of, 1 cut at a time, over the years? Does it play better than King?

Well there may have been a cuestick laying on the table and a piece of chalk might have been blocking a good shot at one of the balls. Other than that, the table was as depicted. Obviously the three is the shot .

Ok Skin, Papie, and the rest of the 'post police'......as Dennis confirmed, no balls were rearranged...the edit that I made was just to correct my naming of a ball...since the colors are similar, I accidentally called the 3 ball the 5 ball in my initial post and had to change that.
