Good eye Johnny - that's the shot that I was thinking I would have probably shot, if it had been my shot in that game.

what happens if you hit the 12 a little full. maybe leave a cut shot on the 5 or if hit too hard the12 comes up enough for a cut shot on that.

if hit great you get an okay safe though.

Like Screwball said....I prefer clipping the 8, taking whitey up and back to the foot rail area.

I think you’d be hard pressed to even hit the 12 rail first. The cue ball is frozen to the point.

I'm kicking off the near long rail to approx half-ball hit on the 12.

I like, as already mentioned, the slow roll off the 5 cueball to the 8.
Not sure angle is right so just move whitey 2 inches to near pocket point. Spot 1 up and play on.

I think anyone who can reliably pull that off from that CB position and that tight an angle should have been in the tournament at Buffalo's.

This was my first thought and probably the best shot imo but I do not believe it is available.

The guys at Buff's might 3 rail kick to the bottom side of the 12, playing the ticky down the rail to just past the side pocket.
I like my 2 options better then anything else mentioned so far. Hence its WIWD

Default Ghost vs. Alex 4

I'm 2 railing the 5 to my hole, leaving cueball on the short rail. If I make it bank the stripe to my hole.
