I am 2 railing the 12 to my hole. I am going to drift down nice and easy.
My focus is on speed of the object ball and trying to double him up on the 14 and 12.
No one is ever shooting the 11 from there and he now has to defend against me.
i like this shot but you HAVE to get the 12 close to the pocket. If it creeps up the long rail Mike will have a free shot on the 15.

Yeah that does look good -- sticking right there.It's hard to see an exact line from a picture, but it looks to me like the 12 ball will two-rail toward my pocket, as Chicago Fats said it would. However, if I shoot that shot I won't send Jojo uptable. I will park it right there on top of the 14 ball. A two-railer like this one, as a lag, is hard to butcher.
Makes a lot of sense for a good banker! I find it interesting to see how different players choose different shots, based on their strengths and weaknesses. Is there a game that invites that anywhere near as much as One Pocket?? I don't think so!!I'm banking the 8 ball straight back and leaving the cb around the 1st diamond by the 8 ball. I've got 2 blockers in the stripes and I may leave the 15 ball, but I'm gonna let em shoot it from there.
I was considering that shot too, because it's a pretty makeable bank. The problem is if you make it, there's no good follow up shot.I'm banking the 8 ball straight back and leaving the cb around the 1st diamond by the 8 ball. I've got 2 blockers in the stripes and I may leave the 15 ball, but I'm gonna let em shoot it from there.
