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.
