You need to shoot them when it's your best option.

When they come up, at least for me, it's usually a variant of this position, which offers a natural stop shot, blockers, and a next shot if I make it!

unless of course you may want to send all three balls over to your pocket

but yea you shoot all kinds of shots if you learn to see them.

the big thing is to shoot enough to learn and learn how to keep your ball from getting to close to a side pocket as thats disaster.

I was just trying to draw the basic concept -- I also didn't draw it quite straight enough to play the stop shot.

this one seems to come up a fair amount. I shot it 2 weekends ago in one of my sets. I hit it as good as any human can. CB stopped perfectly behind blockers and the ball hung in the jaws.

My opponent tried to 1 rail long kick it in and missed the whole ball completely.
