8-ball on the big table. League race to one. I'm solids. The other player ran from the break to the 8 and left me here.

START(
%AU4Z7%B[5B3%CS5W8%DD6Z4%ET3Y1%FD9W2%GG2Y5%HW0Z4%I[4]3%J[7B4
%KB8[8%L[5B4%M\0\6%NB6B9%O[1B1%PX0Z9
)END

I think I did the right shot but I am interested to hear what others think.

Cheers,
Regas

I'd safe him... Something like this

START(
%AU4Z7%B[5B3%CS5W8%DD6Z4%ET3Y1%FD9W2%GG2Y5%HW0Z4%I[4]3%J[7B4
%KB8[8%L[5B4%M\0\6%NB6B9%O[1B1%PX0Z9%Wr6I6%XX8Z7%Yn8D1%Zs3H3
%[H5Y0%\m4C5
)END


I'd call safe incase I dropped a ball though :)

Yeah, 2 rails, big target should be pretty easy to hit. May want to keep it a lil tighter (lil closer to the pocket) about 1/8 of a diamond. Don't want the cue ball to hit the second rail open up and essentially miss it all. Safe is a OK call, probably wouldn't call it though. Even if you make a ball, there are plenty of other safe opportunities afterwards. Should be able to get an even tighter safe on a followup shot. Possibly even make a couple of balls first, depending on layout of balls after the 2 rail kick.

I like the two rail safe as well, if it wasn't ball in hand eight I might even roll the ball down to the end rail with very little angle

I like the two rail kick, but I also agree that you have more options if it isn't ball in hand 8-ball. You could even scratch on purpose and be in a decent spot.

For the benefit of those who don't have the Wei Table or don't know how to use it:

That's why I like this forum. I think your solution was better than the one I did. :cool:

I did call safe in case something weird happened, but I actually kicked it 3 rails off the 3&5 and behind the one. After looking at your shot now, which I didn't even see at the time, yours was probably higher percentage. But I executed this one perfectly, got ball in hand and ran out. One of my teammates made the comment that I always look for the hardest shot. He might be right. :)


This is the shot I played (approximately).

I should figure out how to do it.

I won't go into the details, but the basic idea is that a) you use shift and print screen together to capture a screen including a wei image, b) you then use paintbrush to trim it down to size and save it as a .jpg and c) then you use the manage attachments feature offered when you post to include your .jpg file in your post.

Let's see if this works:

If you upload the pic to another server, you can use the img tags and link to it. It will still show up in the post but the other server will get their bandwith used instead. This is benificial to the owner of this site, I'm sure.

I usually use webshots to host pics.
