Default WWYD: Mid-Game Situation #1

The shooter is up 4-2 in this game, but his opponent has been making some moves to gain the advantage. With a clear view of his opponent's pocket, what can the shooter (you) do here to regain control and stay ahead in the game?

Bank the 8 to across to your side, while taking the cue uptable and leaving it on his long rail, hopefully hiding him behind the one.

If you make the ball currently by your hole thatís fine.. shoot the one next. Otherwise you should have two balls by your hole and he is hidden and in trouble.

As long as you get him on his long rail itís a good shot even if he is not hidden by the one. He is more than doubled up. Even if he can see your hole.. he needs to clear your balls and you should be able to gain a better advantage from there.

After your shot, he could kick one rail at the balls in his hole but with balls by your hole that is not a good move since itís possible that he could only get one anyway or sell out based on how the balls are laying by his hole.

I like this shot if I'm able to shot it with a high right CB, sending it into the chalk on the upper rail and back down towards the 2 and 1.

The 1-15-3 looms large also depending where the cue ball lands. You could also fram the heck out of all 5 balls by his hole...lol

Are you concerned about leaving a cross bank ?
I dont think many players look for or have confidence in that 3 railer
I like how you think kybanks

Not if heís under the one . Or if you make a ball. Also if he does that itís easy enough to kick back to his long rail and try to get under the 1 again. Worth the risk.

It's actually laying really good, the only trouble will be where the cb and 7 end up. 1 of those balls could get in the path of the 15 heading to the 3rd rail. Don't really see anything else I like that clears the pocket.
