6 into the 3, or bank the 14 cross-corner...

Slow rolling the 6 to make the 3. You got 6 open balls. You make the 3 and you are knock knock knocking on heavens door.

I would shoot the 2 into the 3 and roll up to where the 6 doubles up the 15. You gotta be lickin you chops in spots like this and going after the game, especially since you can win and itís really hard to lose. A big mistake in my opinion is moving from here... 80% of the time you start moving and in about 5 shots from now the game looks even and your position has dwindled. You gotta shoot these balls in the hole when youíre staring at them imo.

In the mindset of trying my best to protect the 3-ball that is nearest my pocket, I would bank the 14-ball toward the middle of the table which would be another blocker.

The 6-3 ball combination seems viable except that the 13-12 ball combination is headed to my opponent's pocket should I miss. Then the game could easily change in my opponent's favor.

Yep, shoot the 6 ball at the 3, if you feel certain Jojo will pass between the 15 and 13. Banking the 14 is okay also, and you might be able to make a better stroke for that. Better than being on the rail.

I have been playing pretty good lately so I probably shoot the 6 3 but a month ago I was all over the place because of health so I would have probably played the bank or kick on the 14 trying to block the 3 from him..
If you don't learn to adjust your game you will lose a lot of times when you could have won, even when you were not supposed to.
There is another shot here if you have practiced it enough to hit it confidently and well.. Go rail first to the 2 and play the combination on the 3 , that keeps hitting the 15 or 13 12 combo to his hole out of the equation, and leaves probable blockers between him and any balls near your hole, if you miss.

Instead of banking directly at the 14, what I see is to kick the 14 across, getting under it enough that the cue ball naturally slides down the rail a little. Looks like an easier way to control the cue ball than banking to me...

I do like the bank/kick on the 14 but also if I am hitting them good I love the 6/3 combo.

As another option, you could bank the 7 ball 3 rails long and roll the CB forward to the bottom rail and then back up behind the stack to protect the 3 ball.
