I might try jacking up on the cue ball just enough to try to get it to jump the edge of the 6 ball and try to get the cue ball to power draw back up table, but this is a very aggressive shot that would require extreme accuracy, it would be hard to pull off. The safer play is probably trying a safe getting the 2 ball back to the other end of the table while holding the cue ball at the opposite end.

My thought exactly...2 way shot...You miss then 2 is around the bottom of table and cue is up table for the 3... hopefully behind the 6 or 9...

After seeing that the 2 ball is cuttable to the far corner I concur with the other guys.

Play the two-way shot. If you make it, great. If you miss, you're safe.

You can cut it on the pro side and play a 2 way.

Cut the 2 in the bottom left as mentioned. I would play straight top and should end up between the 9 and 3 for your fourth rail. Should end u safe on a miss short or long.

This looks like the shot to take. You might need a little bottom left for the cue ball to take the correct path. The only danger is the possible kiss after the cue ball travels off the second rail.

Looks automatic to me...

I like this idea. Though it's pretty on paper, the three railer considered by several takes a lot of skill to beat the kiss, even for a player with a three-cushion background, with the two ball, and the result could be disastrous if the kiss isn't beat. Ducking the two to the bottom rail and leaving it nine feet from the cue ball seems a wiser, if less aggressive, play.

Jump the corner of the 6 pocketing the 2, stop the cue ball dead or let it drift a little, bank the 3 towards the 4 & 5 balls hopefully in between sending the 3 up table a bit, park the CB behind the 6 & 9 about where it started out.

6 & 8 will block the long bank hit, the 4 & 5 will hopefully obstruct the short rail hit.

That's a viable option too. But, the problem I see with that is that you are quite likely to leave an open shot at the 2. Maybe not even a bank, but odds are he will be able to see it. And, if he can, he should have a good chance of hooking you again. So, is it really a better option? Also, remember, this is a bar table, so leaving your opponent 9 feet away is REALLY tricky to do! :D

Ah, yes Neil, you may have guessed that I don't play on bar tables. So if the object ball isn't that far away, I'll play the slight masse to make the two in the corner, which should allow me to play safe on the htree next. An overcut might well produce a safety if I miss.

I'm still not shooting a three-rail safety that I think is 50/50 to kiss, even for a strong player.

Why would you risk the possible scratch off the 4, and why move the 4 when it is out in the open now? You could very easily tie it up with the 6-9, or end up with a combo for the 3-4. I don't see any need to take that chance.

I don't think there's a risk of scratching off the 4 or much risk of getting bad off the 4 at all. But I wouldn't prefer to hit it; I only showed the possibility of hitting it to illustrate the boundaries of the shot.

If it was on I'd shoot it this way to avoid using sidespin.

If I can see enough of the 2, I'm banking it the length of the table with high inside... going 4 rails for shape. Especially on a bar box... it's very makeable.

Cue ball ends up not too far from where it is now, and if you miss the 2 ends up near the side rail. Hit it a little hard and maybe the 2 ends up near where it is now, and hooked by the same 6-9. Worst case scenario: you hit with just enough speed to leave the 2 hanging near the side, and the player must shoot it in the side and go down the table and back up again to get shape on the 3. That can be screwed up.
