BANK THE 5. ROLL CB BEHIND 15
Watch Evan Lunda vs Chip Compton at Herb and Dees one pocket tournament.this is very interesting to me
so my questions are for comments more on strategy thinking than best shot
early after the break i look to eliminate his threats
so moving the 5 or 15 and leaving the cue ball safe is my first shot
dans shot ...putting a ball as threat and hiding whitey
puts more pressure on your opponent
i know someone will come up with other shots
but what are your thoughts on these strategically different shots?
Thin the one ball and leave the cueball on the side rail by the fifteen ball. Its a very common one pocket shot.
No, not quite Doc...this common one pocket shot was not an option in this particular situation = the 1ball is a little too far from my pocket = the speed of the object ball and the cueball don't quite match up for an optimum result.Good classic 1P shot. And has the added bonus of opening up the shooter's 9 ball.
It looks like you could roll thin off the 1 ball two rails to behind the 15 or 3. But I'll defer to your judgement, since you were at the live table.No, not quite Doc...this common one pocket shot was not an option in this particular situation = the 1ball is a little too far from my pocket = the speed of the object ball and the cueball don't quite match up for an optimum result.
It looks like you'd have to get about a half-ball hit on the 15 for that shot, which I'm not sure is doable here. But even if you just stick the CB where the 15 lays, it's not a bad shot.If I can get to the 15, I'm knocking it out of the way and taking the cue off the long rail back to the stack. It looks to me like the angle is there. 15 should two rail back towards the stack. I might get lucky and move some furniture to my side in the process.
