I think the reason he scratched is that he had to cut the 10 slightly to the left to be sure it got under the 13 rather than coming off the 13 toward Red's pocket, which is what I would have been afraid of.

absolute disaster shot for bob there. as he gave up a real chance of winning for a shot that does little and a sellout that cost him the game.

You're right. I'm not sure why he chose that shot, although he might have believed that Red wouldn't shoot the 11 (by Red's hole) from the position of the upper pocket.

He also may have been afraid of leaving Red a bank if he tried a short table shot. My guess is that Bob was not a super experienced 1P player at that time, although I could be wrong. RA and Kelly had been tearing it up for quite awhile, and Cliff and then Efren were just coming into dominance in 1P.

yea doc, we give sometimes credit to great players for being more than great shooters. many of them werent good one pocket players or really smart enough to be good at it in the first place. that is not a reflection on bob as i never met him. but he must have come around to beat all of our world beater seniors.
