When you're between a rock and a hard place, in jail, hooped or otherwise just plain snookered, are there some favorite escape routes you look for?

Here are a couple of mine.http://CueTable.com/B/?@2AYho4BIet4CahL3DAqy1EYNq3FSwp3GJHc4HDTl1JBOI3PB aa1Sglt1eBOI2ecpq3kBaa3kbRs3kSjk4kbPc4kCdJ@2AYho4B Iet4CahL3DAqy1EYNq3FSwp3GJHc4HDTl1JBOI3PBaa1Sglt1e BOI2ecpq3kBaa3kbRs3kSjk4kbPc4kCdJ@3AbJM4BWrM1CKBL1 DAbi3EUfd1FKnF4GJXH2HCBy2IQdN3PQni1Sglt3UbJM3UbKg3 kQni3kbNi2kTpl3kars@

I like to do things the hard way, it looks more impressive.

Just out of curiosity, how were you planning on getting past the 4 and the 8 to get to the 10?

Oh, you mean the single kick to the 10..... I forgot to put a blocking ball there.

If there is no blocker like you say, then I like kicking it to the upper side pocket because it has the one as a helper. Plus if you do make it then you have a better chance of getting a fair shot at the eight. Kicking to the bottom side pocket will probably leave you with a difficult shot on the eight because the cue ball will travel to the bottom right part of the table.

Kicking at it using multiple rails would only be for show. However I do know you said to be creative and this is not, It's just the simplest.

Here's a memorable escape I made from a position that looked absolutely hopeless.
