I like this option the best. Good shot

I took all of these shots to the table, its very humbling, and sure brings one down to earth. All the kick shots were very hard for me, and some I could not get the cb to go as drawn up. Franks shot of banking the 7 with right english, I could not do at all, for I could not control the cb to hit the 7 properly.

I had the best luck with either cross banking the 7 with straight center, made a couple of times out of 6 tries. And one rail kicking the 7 coming off the long side rail with right english work very well, for the cue ball just goes naturally back to the long rail where it was stroked from. But man just being a little off and you hit either to thick or miss it altogether, and I sure missed it altogether a lot. LOL.

But, if the opponent needs only 1 ball then I would think it is important to either make the ball or really improve your position, for the ball off the 3 diamond can be shot right in the hole from where the cb is now. Thanks for the thread.

Iím not that confident of hitting it well either - it just looks worth trying. 🙂

Finally got a chance to take it to a table. I had the best results playing the side rail kick to my hole with inside. Made it several times. If you miss the whole ball the cue ball goes three rails safe. The bank was a lot tougher than it looks from where the cue ball is and the carom might be ok but if you don't make it or hang it you sell out. The 1 ball is also a lot closer to the hole than it looks in the photo so the carom is possible. Jmo. John

Default Personal Preference

After it's all said and done, some of us bank the thin cut to be the shot....others look at other options. In Reality, OVER banking the 2 and playing ALL cue ball to the top rail/starboard site, whitey to the head rail/corner....that's what's really going on for the WIN.
If your a player than cannot overbank this shot 100% of the time, then other options must be considered.

Based on the score, based on the table layout, and based on the fact the the ball is not frozen to the rail which allows the space necessary to get a good hit for a controlled spinning cue ball, I am shooting the shot diagrammed in Frank Almanza's post 100% of the time. I would also shoot this shot if it were the last ball on the table.

Who wrote about the 99 critical shots in pool? Well, someone should write about the 99 critical shots in one pocket. This would be one of them.

Jeff; here is how the shot can be played here.

It's a, 'standard 4 cushion' shot in 3 cushion to play safe off the opponents CB! The 7 ball would be my opponents CB in 3C.
