cue bqck between 4 and 2.
2) Or, you could have just shot 4 caddy corner to where you shot the 1.
3) Or, you could have shot the 5, held the cue for the 7, or even followed
up for shape of the 7, this would put you in position for shape on the 6.
If you held the cue for the 7, you could always shoot the 2 if you missed shape on 6. After 2, you could either shoot the 4 or 6, 6 preferred because then you get shape on 4, and just follow a bit for the 8.

Don't 'lock' yourself into 1 sequence of running the balls, be flexible, evaluate after EACH shot what is best for the RUN.

Playing shape is 70% of the game - Jimmy Caras, 3 times World Champion, 1962.
Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, you do this all the time.

THEY'RE PLAYIN 9 BALL.
