You bank it into the combo that looks to be wired bank to your hole.
If you make it, you are in a position to run out.
If you miss it, your opponents cross corner bank is locked up because the 13 is blocking the 14 from banking.

Ingenious.. brilliant.. That's what I'm talking about!!!

If I miss the 4 railer bad, I may open up all the balls near my hole.
If I make it and stick the cue. I can bank the 2 after and run out.

I know everyone will say this is too risky blah blah blah, but I don't see this as being too hard to shoot and get a good outcome.
To hard to control cue ball. Depending on score and ball count

Clever shot there Mr Fats.

I donít think you can hit the 8 full face to stop it. Then you leave a shot on the 14 if you can hit it full face. A little nudge on the stripe leaves the table open.

Kudos Ghost! Being able to recognize such a thought provoking layout is a true talent! Iíve read through all the responses and as usual the members have dissected most of the available options...

The two rail bank on the 8 was the 1st shot I saw, but it looked dangerous because of the possibility of bumping the 15 and opening up the table for my opponent, so I moved on.

I looked at the different ways to weld the cb to the back of the 10/2, but decided that anything I came off of would not sufficiently add to the repositioning of balls in my favor, so I continued to look em over...

As Beatle stated in an earlier post, he realizes heís in a bad way in this game, and rather than bump and grind his way to a loss he believes is inevitable, heís shooting the 7/3 combo and trying to turn the game around right now... IMO, not a terrible choice at all, especially if you are playing a tough opponent...

There is a shot here with a lot of moving parts, but it looks like it could work out very well, and it looks like it lays perfect for execution. Shoot the 15 with draw the left side of the 12, medium speed.... the cb draws into the side of the 8, pushing it towards my pocket,then the cb draws back off the side of the 8 and settles into the 9/10/5 catchers mitt. The 12 is not a problem, it will bank across and the 15 will also bank off the foot rail and quite possibly open up some of the stack in my favor... The only real concern is the 2 ball, but the way it lays, it looks like it will jaw outta there..

Could turn the table around

Thanks for sayin' brother Jeff.

As Beatle stated in an earlier post, he realizes heís in a bad way in this game, and rather than bump and grind his way to a loss he believes is inevitable, heís shooting the 7/3 combo and trying to turn the game around right now...

Well, imo every possible move here (including all the choices that have been posted up) are either unavailable , unproductive, or very "fraught with peril" ... that said, if it was my shot, since there's no good move available, like my pal beatle, I believe I would also shoot the 7-3 combination - it's not laying all that tough...

And now, having said that...what happened was...

Steve felt the same way, and shooting the 7-3 combination is what he chose to do...he didn't quite make it though = the 3 rattled into the two pocket points and came back to end up to the right of the pocket - he left me the cut on the 13, but he's at least glad that I am totally jacked up...here's how it turned out ----->

I disagree with a 0 0 score that you think this game is over with the layout... but nevertheless....



If this was my turn, I wouldn't even shoot the 13 jacked up. No reward. I would bank the 3 and take out the 6 on the same shot. Now let's play.
