Default Ghost vs. John 47 wwyd?

My shot --- my pocket is at the bottom right --- score is Ghost ahead 7 to 4, both going to 8 --- I'm corner-hooked and can't see the 10ball --- there's about 5 choices here - wwyd ----->

Iím coming off the 5 and sinking his 12. Moving the 5 updatable on my side so even if I miss, it will be tough for him to get multiple balls.

Are you serious this must be a trick question there is only one option that I can think of, anything else would be uncivilized. I hate to come on so critical but come on Ghosty you surely can think of a better wwyd then this one.

No trick here partner - I believe there's a good lesson to be learned here - and if you don't realize that then you had better turn in your teaching credentials .....imo there's one shot that is the best choice, but it isn't necessarily the choice that most players would choose .

The ONLY choice I see, and I assume is the one Dr Bill is referring to is to bank the 5 ball to the upper corner near those other two balls at pocket speed. He can have the 10 ball, but that is all. Score is now 7-5.

I would not take a chance trying to make the 10 ball coming off the 5 ball.You'd have to hit it pretty hard to execute that, and the 5 ball could come out leaving him a shot. And, there is absolutely no point in kicking the 10 ball in and taking any chance of coming off the hill

(Sure hope Ghost has some cookies on hand for this one)

I would just punt the 5 ball off the long rail short of the corner , and roll up near the stripe at the top of the table and let him try to get out from there . I would just give him the 10 rather than take a chance of drawing into it scratching and making a ball up in the top corner or some other goofy thing that usually happens when I turn a ball loose.

my gut reaction was kick the 10 ball in
but based on the score
i like the idea of put the 5 out of play and play from 7-5
i am here to learn so
lets see how the posts progress
