Default WWYD from gambling match last night

Ok. It's your shot. The score is 6-5 you. You are playing a set and this is the hill game. The guy you are playing hasn't missed a shot all night. Your pocket is CLOSEST to the ONE BALL. There are pictures from two angles.

WWYD??



Other view (pocket still closest to the one ball)

I would cut the 15 in with left english and play the cue ball to the right side rail for a decent shot on the 8. Especially like this shot on a gold crown with looser pockets, as this table appears to be.

I'm banking the six with pocket speed trying to freeze the cue ball to the top rail by that chalk

I second this ^^^^. I was going to write it then saw it was already suggested.

I'd kill it more hit it slower and cut the one ball in next. There's enough spin on the cue ball, to easily motivate the obj. ball too the hole.

That's my shot on any table.

You state that he hasnt missed a shot all night, but your both on the hill and you are ahead 6-5.
Now to the shot. Since you havent missed a shot all night, cut the fifteen. But how much are the stakes? How much are you behind, ahead? Banking the 8 is probably the safest shot. Banking the six is the most gratifying for the rail birds.

Now that's funny, good point Bill.

Of course you cut the 15ball in, anything else would be uncivilized.

Good WWYD. My first thought was to just make the 15 and hold it for the 8 using left, but then I thought of 3 other shots, and I need time to think it over. I'm thirsty. My wife just called. I need to use the bathroom. Is the kitchen still open?

I just don't see how I could pass up the cut....

Heh. That is funny. He hasn't missed, but I haven't let him see many shots either. Also, earlier this week, I hung a thin cut trying to baby it to hold up for shape. So... if I was going to cut the 15, I would not baby it. I would make the ball solidly and try to take the natural path around the table and come back for the 1 next. Not saying what I shot yet, just adding some color.
