Default Newbees wwyd

So, I'm new to posting wwyd threads but here goes my first attempt. Helpful suggestions for posting images are most welcome.

I plan to post a variety of situations which I have manufactured on my own table. I will post them one at a time and you players new to the game can analyze each situation so as to learn to think out of the box so to speak. What I'm looking for is not necessarily shots which pocket balls but instead create moves which will result in strong positions for winning games.

Anyone can play of course but give the newcomers a chance to think about it before you experienced players chime in please.

Thanks,
Tom

Looks fantastic Tom. So crisp and clear. You can easily tell which ball is which. Obviously I know the correct solution to totally take charge of this game, but like you said, let's give the newer posters a chance first. Great job.

I like that too. I'd have to be sure not to shoot too hard and dislodge the pack enough to sell out.

Could also bank the 3 with low right. Drawing off the right rail and back into the pack that way.

The two railer is stronger and more of a game changer though.

Ok so I'm super new..but love this game. actually looking for someone to learn/coach me with this game. I'll be at DCC, actually ill start a thread about that later.

On with the newb,shot.

I like Trying to bank the 11 into the 3 sending(the 11) back into the stack. Hopefully running right into the 10,12, 15.. again hopefully sending the 15 right into my pocket and a chance to run some balls before I would have to play safe.

That was aggressive if I wanted to go for conservative play;

I would try to thin the 11 putting the cue into the stack to protect my advantageous position .

Now teach me what I should be doing here please.

I like crossing the 11 to my side and rolling the cue to the head rail.

I love this.....So many ideas.....Not all of them very good, but I like the imagination you guys are exhibiting. Keep it up, you might come up with something really special.

Could also cross the 11 with extreme right. Carom the 11 off of the 8 and know balls towards your hole and have the rock come back down the same rail. Tough to hold the rock on the same side but possible.
