Aggressive - bank the 3.....mover - thin the 4 or kick the 1...

Bailiff, call in the next case...

Kick softly at the 1 ball (or is it the 5?).

Soft kick on the 1-ball for sure! Good reward and simple execution.

I don't see a way to bank the 3 without selling out a return shot on at least one of the 6, 15, 7, or 4. Unless I make the 3, of course, but even then the next shot won't be trivial.

Since I have the lead here, I am sending balls up table by shooting the 4 into the 7 and putting my cb on his side rail by his pocket.

Now that I see Ghost's kick at the 1, I like it as well, ns ghost ~

The kick to the 1ball is only good if you can hide at least half of the 4ball. If you allow your opponent to see the 4ball where all he needs to do is shoot it to the bottom rail then the kick is useless. Understanding this choosing the 4ball by brushing it softly enough to not move it much and send the cue ball to the side rail and hiding and protecting the 4ball and 13ball will be the better choice.

You have the better position by far, playing an up table game from here is not correct providing you have a 100% safe shot that will force your opponent to come back with a defensive move where he could make a mistake, would be correct.

As a rule of thumb, never give up the stronger position if you have a free safe shot that will force your opponent to answer with a defensive shot, you never know what he might do to enhance your chances of winning.

Absolutely, and your reasoning is flawless. You are definitely on a roll today, Dr. Bill.

Well worth the price of admission, thanks again Dr. Bill for another great nugget!

(I think this came up in another thread a while back but I always try to play the ball count so if I need a few and they need more than me, I am pushing stuff up table automatically. Now, I am going to reconsider my position when the current lay of the balls is in my favor and first see if I have an easy safe shot that could cause my opponent to mess up ...I really didn't look to hard for these options in the past but I will now!)

Putting my opponent on the bottom rail off the 4 into 7 with a nice little draw stroke is best for me.
