I'm banking the 9 up/down. Power draw, to the foot rail and back out. All the balls (14,12,8/15 combo) are lined up for your hole. Juice up whitey apply some r/h gearing spin to the obj. ball and bank out....it's a free shot. If missed, no return cross corner bank available.

This might be a case where an up table game is imminent; and may be preferable. However, I'd like to leave the CB in the upper right corner, but it's not possible with the 7 sitting there.

Therefore I'd take a look at shooting the CB through the 14, banking it to my side, while either: 1. trying to roll the CB between the rail and the 7, or, 2. bumping the 7 up table with the CB. Now there's no offensive return shot for the opponent, and there will likely be a better opportunity next inning.

Get the 14 to my side and stick on the 12, as JTom described.

Cory

P.S. I fight against uptable games not because I *can't* play them, but because it's less fun (less fun to me, not to Grampa) than playing with the pressure/opportunity of real threats of multi-ball runs.
Cory,

I take this to mean that you, like all experienced one pocket players, seek to play to your advantage, when you perceive you have one. As there are several legitimate strategies to winning one pocket, let's not besmirch the elderly for the enjoyment they get from one-balling you into a coma.

One pocket, like basketball, football, even tennis is quite often about making your opponent play your game. We all are gonna get there some day, unless we quit playing.

I would look at the 12\14 carom bank.

Eye-balled this when I first saw it, only I'd thought about some follow. See
where that might be a problem. Just hope the "Power draw" doesn't put
to much spin on the 9 causing it to contact the rail with to much force on
it's way to the pocket.

It's a 9 ball shot, that Cole Dixon or Ether....would Shoot in a heartbeat. Ask Hendy.

I'm not either one of those fellas, so I still tend to over think sometimes.

Shooting the 9 ball bank would be a very low percentage and likely suicidal choice that neither Ether nor Cole would make imho, and I've played them both. To draw the CB back to the short rail and then high enough to get to another shot would require enough speed that the 9 ball, if/when it misses will rebound and push balls away from our pocket, possibly over to our opponent's side, and leaving him something to shoot straight into his hole. Even if that didn't occur, there would still be some kind of safe bank available. But the real risk is that the 9 ball is going to hit something on the way down or back and cause a ball to leak over and become available to our opponent.

I'm going with the 14 bank to my side and freeze him by the 12.

For the most part, I'm with jtompilot:

It looks like the only safe shot and there's not a whole lot you can do to prevent this from going uptable. Another version of the same shot would be cut the 14 softly uptable to try to freeze the cue ball to the bottom rail by the right corner pocket. Use a little draw and right english leave the 7 and the 14 uptable.
