The 1-ball bank is possible. But if it's hit thin enough to make, then the CB won't be able to contact the 8.

If you draw enough off the 3 to protect against the 1 ball, and miss, you'll give up a bank on the 12, and the 3 will go back up table. That's one of the other reasons I like banking the 1 and nip drawing the CB into the 8, which seems almost automatic the way I read the pictures. A little inside draw off the 1 would ensure a good hit on the 8. Even if I miss, I'll have the 1 near my hole, the 12 is not a threat, and the 3 is still there on my side for a future bank shot after my opponent has to deal with the 1 ball right away.

Beatle nailed it. Anything else would be uncivilized.

Why would you consider drawing the CB back that far? There's a good sized area for the CB where the 1 is out of play, and the 12 can't be banked (but it can be cut if the 3 pockets).

Very clever that the Ghost put one up with so many options. You have a shot on every ball except the eight ball. All have a bit of risk involved and the one ball has the least risk. The two rail bank on the ball by the corner has the most risk.
I like the shot on the one ball and with this the eight ball does serve some purpose.

if you shoot the one it looks like it will come up short most times and then it will not be a threat to him and he may get an easy bank on the 8 or 13.

plus it isnt a game winning shot. you give up your best chance of winning the game on this inning.

Bank the 3 with just straight draw using the 3 to 1 rule.
play position on the 10 ball, cut it in and get position on the 1 to bank.

Naturally Steve is going to bank the 3 and play shape for the stripe

Steve would know lol.

The only question is, at the table, how do you feel about using draw, given the degree of stretch on the 3 ball bank? I might follow instead based on the stretch involved....

Banking the three ball seems to be the best shot at first glance but I'm not so sure that its the correct shot. You both need three and I think banking the one ball and dragging the cueball into the eight ball is better suited to ball control and game management.
