OK, Billy,

I'm confused. When you first brought up banking the 4 ball, you were gonna draw your rock back to the side rail then up to the opposite corner.Now, you seem to wanna go top left english to cross over the 4 ball.

Are you gonna decide just before you pull the trigger?

If hit too hard, you may not end up with anything in front of your pocket, worse a ball could bank to the opponents side.

That said, based on what I see in the pic, I am thinning off the 7 and leaving the cb just below the corner pocket. This will open the 7 and 6. I expect the return shot will be coming off the 2 and trying to duck under the 2 balls on the foot rail. If this shot comes up short, you will have a nice 2 rail shot on the 11 with the potential to duck behind the 2 balls.

This is one of those wwyd where you really need to be at the table.
Ben,

Just curious. Coming off that 2 ball and getting under the 3 ball isn't that hard. But I think i might roll the 11 ball at my hole and come off that 5 ball to get behind those two balls on the bottom rail. If I make the 11 ball I'm off to the races, if not, my opponent is blocked from the 11 ball hanging in my hole. Do you see it differently?

Your sending the 4 ball thru the same opening as the cue ball. Iíd be shocked if there was no kiss.

My first post..... was banking it off the other long rail into the stripe with draw, the one Chicago Mike also liked, second post was a RA 4 ball bank shot he would of taken every time in the sixties.

The 11 ball definitely looms large. if the cb is left below the corner, on or very near the rail, the cut on the 11 is not free. To move the 11 close to the pocket the CB needs some pace and it will retain most of the energy and could get away from the shooter hitting the 5 or 13 and selling out. I don't think you can play this shot soft enough to come off those balls and settle behind 3/15 and get the 11 close.

Again, I would need to be at the table decide how difficult this shot would be. If I am playing a solid player with strong cuing skills, I might just take the 13 cross bank to avoid the whole situation with the 11 because you are right Darmoose, if struck well I would be in trouble.

Well, Darrel & Robert agreed with Paul (yeah Cory, "Mexican Paul")....Paul, being the careful player that I said he is, did in fact shoot the shot of coming off of the 6ball and then back against the 3/15...and being the approx. .800 3cushion player that he is, he hit it almost perfectly (leaving the cueball froze between/against the 15-3 would have been perfect) ...he left it like this >>>

I liked you better when you had cookies to give out.

So, Ghostie, did you use those balls you were behind to fire at the cluster around the spot to move everything to your side of the table, or did you bank the 11 ball and get natural position and run out?

Thanks for the WWYD.

I’m surprised Paul didn’t hit the 6 fuller banking it to his side and still getting safe. I guess the angle wasn’t there for that. Maybe the 6 went back and forth
