Make your 2 balls here and collect.


Nah. It was a good lesson. Good idea though about no negative thoughts.

I would cut the 15 with a lot of inside english. I would hit it at a speed that would keep it below the 8 ball to hold it for a shot on the one . If you miss the 15 but leave it close to your pocket with no shot for him on the 8 you should still be in pretty good shape.

WWYD??



Other view (pocket still closest to the one ball)
I dont know what you decided to do here but I all I can say is..if the situation comes up at Derby...... Cut the 15 ball in!!!
P.S. Unless of course I am your opponent then please opt for one of your patented intentional fouls

I almost didn't post this bc the 15 seemed so obvious, but I sent the pics to a member here and he came up with 2 other options first, so I decided to post.



Well, to end the suspense..... of course I cut the 15!!! But as I mentioned earlier, I was concerned about babying it, so I opted to cut it and go four rails around the table back for the 1. I pocketed the ball, however, as Youngstownkid smartly anticipated, I did run into the 6 uptable which changed my plans.

Here was the result...



It's still your shot... I'm sure you would bank the 8 here right??? Well I did. I banked the 8 into the 1, bringing the cue back uptable, and ending my turn with the following layout.



I appreciate everyone's input. Thanks! I'll have to work on holding up those thin cuts so I don't have to go around the world so much heh.

Some people pocket better when shooting harder.
Just the opposite for me.

It's not that. I just hung a thin cut and wanted to err on the side of no doubt.

just shoot the shot allowing for the tables speed to determine what ball to play position for next and win the game.

if you start ducking when you have winning shots you are toast so be prepared to pay.

From the initial pics to me it also seemed like if you cut the 12 firm, you would open up a couple chances of scratching if you miss hit a little, whereas softly with a little inside, there was no chance of a scratch. I have to be an inveterate ducker cuz I miss so often lol, so I would definitely have played it soft. Soft was still going to gain shape if the ball dropped, so why add unnecessary risk by hitting it firm?

From the final layout, I'm banking the one into the eight and leaving the cue ball up table. You're mine now.
