I would play the 6ball into the 15ball to hit the high side of the 10ball with the 15ball while pocketing the 3ball in my pocket in the process. The cue ball will carom slightly into the 11ball sending the cue ball to the short rail approximately 2" from the corner pocket.

Now that's "moving" I'm hoping.

Nice, might just clear the 10 and the 2. Hopefully everything clears before the cue ball goes to the corner.....

thanks for all the replies guys
the cue ball being so close to the rail would make me nervous trying to draw off the 7
the 5 bank and its variations i considered and i think was a viable choice for me
brlongarm suggestion of a danny smith shot in post 26 was one i would not have seen or considered...thank you for opening my eyes to that
i really mainly thought to go to the head rail doubling him up on everything
as pointed out with nothing on my side i would probably just be making myself suffer longer
again thanks for all your approaches to a tough break

Larry,
It’s hard to tell not being at the table, but it looks like the 7 could be hit full, or very nearly full, with no draw applied... Using a lot of left English should deliver the cb into the 10 ball quite nicely... However this choice would only be successful if the 10 ball rebounded off the foot rail enough to block access to the lower balls in the stack, ( 3 ball specifically) thus preventing the opponent from coming off one of them and burying the cb behind the balls located along the foot rail...

Enjoyed looking over the options Larry, thank you for putting it up...

I like the spinning off of the seven ball approach. Bad ass break though....

Dr. Bill
If you get a chance, watch Cohan after his opponent just broke ''when he walks up to the table for the first time'', especially if it's a good break, he always seems to check the natural line of the cue ball going forward off the first ball hit.
This shot Billy describes is exactly that shot, seems to come up maybe 1 outta 5 breaks. The old switcheroo.....

Howdy All;

Been awhile, still the new guy on the block, but I feel the need to ask
what happens after the 15 contacts the 10 in Mr. wincardona's suggestion?
10 hit the rail? 15 goes in the pocket or stop against the 2? Not trying to be
argumentative or difficult, just curious is all. Trying to learn. After all one
would need to hit the 6 hard enough to give the 3 the speed to travel to your
own pocket and that inertia would also be with the 6 going to the 15 presumably.

My beginners thought is to bank the 5 as has been mentioned several times
and attempt to get the cue ball above the 1 ball so there is a double between
the 2 and the cue ball. Closer to the 1 the better.

Thanks for y'all's patience with me. All constructive criticism welcomed.

hank
