That's why he gets 11-7/10-7 from me.

What's the point in 5-railing the 4-ball when you can achieve at least as good a result by controlling the speed of the shot? As suggested by a couple of folks, cutting the 4-ball into the 9/11 with a center low CB to bring it back to its original area seems like the simple way to go. The 4 will kiss of the 9 or 11 and head towards the shooter's pocket.

The five railer was never my real option, as I stated in a later post. In reality you described what I would shoot. (I posted that later as well). Good call. Heh

True enough. I executed my shot really well on the very first attempt, but the following ones were... let's say less convincing

the 5 railer looked to be laying good but I also would not have pulled the trigger on it in a real game. My shot would have been the 3 ball combo drawing the CB to side rail and back into stack or just some follow and follow down behind it, depending on what felt right at the table.

Cutting the 4 is a good shot too IMO, and one that doesn't naturally jump out to me because of the CB having to be let loose a little.

and welcome back Peter ~
