View Full Version : What's Worse

Breaking and running to the 9 and missing, or completing a run out and scratching while making the 9?

Oh well - I'll be sure to get better shape on the money ball next time. :/

It was one of those thin cuts across the foot rail that sends the cb up-table. I opted to not complicate the shot with any sort of "insurance safety" english and just use speed control. I probably should've used the english to get away from the pocket.

Scratching is the worst you can always get lucky if you miss and leave a hard shot. But i have done both to many times

It's always worse to make the 9 and scratch.

At least when you miss the 9, there is a chance to leave your opponent difficult and get back to the table.

Oh, absolutely there's a chance of leaving it tough. I was speaking more from the heart-break side of things. Is it harder to handle one over the other, mentally?

I so very rarely make it to the 9 (I usually miss the 7, lol) so they're both a kick in the face for me. I was just curious what other players think.

Which ever costs you the match is worst. :)
