I'll go first. I put a bunch a left on it to bring the cue back uptable. Just trying to leave him long.

Bank for your hole expecting a combination. Concentrate on dragging CB 2 rails out of your own corner. Just enough speed to make sure the CB gets past side pocket/up table will give object ball enough speed to go. 1 or 2 balls should end up being close. If opponent shoots balls away, chances are you will have a cross bank.

i would go forward if banking the pink ball and up table.

but i would draw off the 7 and into the ten for the billiard softly. gets one up table and likely makes or hangs the ten. hard for him to get it out of there especially if real close to it.

I believe I would try to make the 10 by taking the 7 uptable. I want to get a ball up table anyway. I'd expect to at least leave the 10 close enough to my hole that he can't take a risky bank on the 7 or the 4. And the risk of selling a short-rail bank on the 10 seems pretty low.

Update: well, Beatle got there before me though I hadn't seen his post at the time.

Thin the r/s of the pink with 9 o'clock med speed, go four rails leaving both the white and the pink laying near the same long rail.

Both Beatle and Cory like the billiard on the ten ball. I like it as well

Looks makable.

7 ball goes up table on your side and very unlikely you'd sell out hitting it pocket speed

I'd shoot it immediately

I will cross the pink ball, banking it toward my pocket, pocket speed, hoping to end the game right here. No kiss involved. If I have to under-bank it to avoid the 7 ball, I will still cross it to my side. I like the 7 ball where it is. It limits what he can do about the 10 ball.

I'm close to that, but I don't think it has to be particularly thin, just a little overcut toward my pocket to avoid the kiss.
