Default Rob and Tyler are so easy to fool, lol

Tyler, for an intelligent guy, as I already said, you keep posting clueless, opinions re. my game, when in actuality, you know nothing of my game...you keep saying that I just want to play safety's and don't want to shoot at my hole.....well, it's reality check time once again...

You either don't read all the wwyd's,,, or you have a bad memory,,, or you have a selective memory,,, or like Rob, you just want to puff your chest up like a macho aggressive shooter and moronically knock moving in One Pocket - I don't know which of these 4 apply to you...that said, here's one last clue for you - just a few examples to display how disingenuous your posts re. my game have been...

There were two shot choice threads that I posted up in the last coupla months where the choice was to either go for the aggressive shot at your hole, or play the conservative safety - in both of them I chose the aggressive shot - I'll re-post up pics of those shots with my text....and also, John Henderson and I played out and gambled at a prop bet a few years back - what were our choices in this prop bet? - I bet on shooting the aggressive shot at my pocket, and John bet on shooting a conservative safety instead.

The past threads ----->

"In this scenario, your pocket is at the top-farthest-to-the-left - the pocket that is not in the picture --- you need one ball to win, your opponent needs two...

You can play a safety, or you could go for the win and bank the 12 ball cross-corner...if you bank it at pocket speed with mucho inside english, you should be able to leave your cueball by your long rail, approx. halfway between the side pocket and that piece of chalk on the rail, leaving your opponent a very tough cut if you miss the bank...

As for my choice here..I like and am very comfortable with this type of pocket speed bank using inside english, so I am going for the win here and banking the 12ball fo-sure...here's the layout ----->"

And ------>


We had some good debating with this wwyd - especially between Freddy and Billy I......

The situation is: You need one ball to win, your opponent needs all four balls - you're playing a good player - you're playing with fairly tight, but not super tight, 4-3/8" pockets - your pocket is at the top left...

If you cut the 3 in you win the match...you also have the conservative option of giving your opponent the 4ball - sorry, my bad - the 4 was inside the jaws in the original thread - I took this current picture incorrectly - so make your choice as if the 4 was inside the jaws, wher you can't remove it...

Last time this wwyd was up we had a pretty even split on choices...the funny debate was..myself and Freddy opted for going for the win..then Billy I. said he's giving up the 4ball, and not going to take a chance of missing the 3, leaving a cross-corner, and having the score get to 7-6..then Freddy said to Billy "get the fuk out of here - you're just saying that to disagree with me - I've known you for 45 yrs. and I know you're shooting the 3ball every time" )...well, Billy wouldn't change his story, and they went back and forth for a coupla days......

So then... wwyd?

PS, When I was in this actual game situation, I shot the 3ball, and would every time in this spot.

Are you that smart Ghosty.... So the Ghostly scenario on this wwyd he would have everybody's name on his list including the newbies and if you chose to cut the eight instead of banking the ten he would write next to your name...can't pinch bank... C player....lol


C'mon now John, the Ghost isn't a devious guy.. ...

But then again, over the years, I have connected with/gambled with, 50 different members of this site - don't ask what my won/loss record is in those meet-ups.....

PS, I'd love to add Tyler to that list...

I learned something here: If I REALLY want to get under Ghostie's skin, I won't bother challenging his moving, I'll go straight for the throat and call him a Pussy.

For those who may be interested I have another perspective that you can apply to this situation to help you make an informed decision. I can assure you what I have has never been discussed, not now, nor not then when we originally had this debate.

Maybe your 'Matching Up' moving is even better than your moving in the game.

Bill, coyness doesn't suit you. You've got to avoid the Ghost's influence!...

I can't get away from work, but if you can meet up at hard times, bellflower, I will play you. Scouts honor. I figure with all the travel the set would have to be pumped into the range of 1000 at least?

This will be great, you can finally prove you are right about something, and redeem yourself for missing that case ball against John. We can bill this the squeezer vs the shooter and finally put a solid cap on the 8 ball vs 10 ball thread.
