11 off the 12 to the long rail and banks at my pocket, 12 goes up table.
I am sitting behind the 10 with a shot in case I make the 11 or as a blocker if I get close.
Pocket speed on the 11.

I like thinning the 11 and going two rails and trying to get to my opponents pocket. The 12 should block the view of the 11 and 10.

For those who advocate the 11-12 bank, the "sticking the CB on the 10 ball" is the good part. But a combo to either side of the 12 is very possibly a kiss, which would leave two balls by the opponent's hole. As long as the CB "sticks" on the 10, then it's safe, but the shot may not have accomplished much.

It might be smart to shoot the 10 straight ahead, banking it off the foot rail and bumping both the 12 and 10 balls uptable. Now with the 11 freed up, he can't leave you uptable.

There are several nice banks: the 2 straight back, and the 7 two-railer, but neither leave you in very good shape, and could sell out.

This looks like the best option for me. However if one wanted to get more aggressive the seven ball could be banked two rails while dragging the cue ball behind the twelve. If you do this you have to hit the seven hard enough to get out of the area for fear of leaving a bank on it.

Just because I want to point out something different (than the right shot), simply 2 rail the 7 and draw the cue ball back for perfect shape on the 12. Then proceed to run out.

Why do you guys make this game so difficult???? (joke - I wish I knew what you all knew).

Edit: dang it, I just now saw Frank's post - beat to the shot again. hahahaha

That 5-1 bank or kick combination is feeling lonely over there on the long rail, with no onepocket.org gofer picking him.......

Thats the bad thing about playing good players , they might shoot that {what I think is a goofy shot} and make it.
My opponents can get a 20% discount on the game if they shoot that particular shot.

the combo looks like it goes into the short rail not the pocket. and it can be a sellout shot if it doesnt go. and why shoot it as you can shoot it later maybe and right now you are the favorite in the game shooting and freezing him up.

Would kicking in the 12 qualify? Second shot would be the combo take out.
