Default S. Daulton vs. R. Saez 2012 D.C.C.

Score is 2-2 in games and Daulton just broke game 5 and made two balls. What would you do?

How did you stumble and fall into the Banks forum?

Shoot the 6 cross corner.

The 6 cross corner is the most conservative shot. Nothing wrong with it. You wont leave much if you miss. You also wont have much if you make it.

If the 7 ball was a 1/2 in. or 1 in. more over to the right, the 7 ball straight back would be an automatic pick. You would bank that ball and play position by either stopping for the 6 cross corner or roll forward toward the 3 ball cluster at the table head.

The aggressive choice, banking the 7 straight back right from where it sits, and rolling forward toward the cluster for a big chance to go all the way out, is not a bad option at all. Just a matter of how you might feel at the time.

Knowing Shannon, I would guess that he took the aggressive route, even tho he much prefers to bank straight backs to his left side.

Also, knowing the Kentucky bankers, if he did shoot the 7 he probably didnt follow it, but used either draw or center ball. Only top Chicago bankers are comfortable using follow on bank shots for position. Following the cue ball into a "death zone" requires a slight tensing of the jaw and a tightening of the old bung hole.

I like shooting the 7 here and coming down for the 8. I like hitting that bank with high because a high ball doesn't grab the ob very much. I think the angle will come off very natural. Those acute angles like that need to be pocketed I think, especially if you are right on top of it.

7's got enough room. Anything else appears to only make things more difficult. Based on his choices from other games, he may have gone ahead and done it 2 in the other side.. but I'll stick with the 7 one time.

Here is what I would try. None of the shots are overly difficult to pocket, and none of them require too much CB movement.

Missing here, should never enter your mind.There's two shots..the 6 cross corner which is what I would shoot or the 7 straight back to his right.Either one is about 60 to 70 % make for a good player,imo.With these easy type banks I don't think you should worry about missing and go all out to make the shot.Damn the torrpedos,full steam ahead.quote from some french dude,I think. Least that's the way I try to play in them short races and short rack.I think I was In with SD on this match and I think I watched this match Play well. John B.
