Default Wwyd late game

CB is near your pocket. WWYD if you needed 1. WWYD if you needed 2.

If I need 1 I am back cut banking that 10 once across.

If I need 2 I am shooting the 10 at the headrail a 1/2 diamond from the farthest corner.

Trying to leave whitey near the rail, all 3 balls in a line.

Well, why should I lie about it? If I need one I will drive the two stripes together gently. If I need them both I will shoot the same shot, but with more speed, to leave both playable in the upper right quadrant. In each case I will try to leave Jojo as near as possible to where he is now. In other words I will give my man a chance to make an error. Sometime he do.

Michael (Unoperro), I like this option for both instances.
And, if you do happen to pocket the 10 ball in corner, the cue is in a very
good spot near the rail and the opponent's pocket.

When I saw your response, I was shocked, knowing your game and imagination. VERY conservative for you.

the person needing two wants to have both balls in play. so if you only need one you must be very careful about shooting a shot that can leave him a bank where he only has to get back up table to maybe get out.

so shooting at your pocket or towards it has to have a big chance of making it or hanging it to be viable.

I would just float the 10 into his long rail near the side pocket and try to get the 2 balls close together, with the 10 between me and the 12 ball.

If I didnt like that type bank I would agree.

If I need 2 I wouldnt shoot the bank that I like because I dont like the shot I am left after I pocket the 10.

I always liked three railing this ball to my side pocket if I need 1 and the combo if I need two trying to make both and freeze one the low rail

Chris, I like the 3 rail shot on the 10, especially if I can keep it off the long rail far enough that there is maybe only a tough 2 railer for my opponent when I leave the CB near his pocket, and I'd probably do it whether I need one or both, but I don't know what you mean about the combo and trying to make both balls. Can you give more detail about that shot?
