I am banking the 2 ball straight up and back down with no angle... I am following the cue ball to the first diamond on top right.
I want to add the 2 ball to the area of my pocket and protect the 8 and 6 behind the 7.
I am leaving him the 5 11 combo all day long.

I think it will get worse from there.
He will billiard those balls by my hole his way and draw cue ball back a little to protect the ball by his pocket.

I agree with your idea of leaving him doubled up uptable. I would rather take a foul and roll the cue to a spot very close to the rail (if not frozen) at the first diamond near the top corner on the long rail) This protects your pocket and hampers his offensive opportunities. The 11 ball now becomes a liability for him in that he has to keep you off of it to avoid you banking it to your hole. I like making him come downtable with a shot.

If I got the speed down I’m thinning the 8 and bringing the cueball across to the rail on the other side of the 11
Might take some inside spin

You could freeze him to the 9 and possibly end up with a bank on the 11. Bank the 7 and leave the cue ball at the top left corner. Or 3 rail kick the 11. There's plenty of options that could work out in your favor.

i was typing while you posted jimmy
i dont know if my thinking is correct on this but from my limited experience
if i dont deal with a trouble ball for me sooner rather than later usually i regret that decision because i only delay getting into more trouble
getting by the 7 ball doesnt deal with the 11
getting behind it he may have to move it for you and it is a tougher spot for him
jmho
icbw
i would appreciate your opinions
in general and in this specific example
ghost if you dont want to say too much now you can pm me your thoughts
thanks in advance
