If youíre in a tournament, Dean, your opponent is not of your choosing....
...you might in fact be a 5-1 underdog....but that means you should win one in six...
...in actuality, that underdog might lose 20 matches in a row because of timidity.
.....an underdog should play extra aggressive...he ainít gonna out move the guy.

In gambling, at 9-ball and snooker, I have given up some horrendous spots....and won.
...if the guy hadíve started blasting, I wouldíve had to quit.
..timidity has put a lotta money in my pocket.

Conversely, I have seen good players lose giving big weight, because they were too
anxious to get the balls off the table...when youíre the best player, you can force mistakes.

In reviewing this post.....I realize I sound like I know it all...
...could you lend me $4 for a sandwich?


Lionize your game.

Way too risky... if she's comfortable with that cut, then cut it absolutely. If she wasn't then she would have played safe. She's got some of the best safes in continuous.

The correct 14.1 play on this shot is a safety - unless you are not really serious about playing the game correctly. Every shot attempt or safety play in world class 14.1 MUST be in anticipation of a game closing run out by your opponent -if you miss the shot or play a bad safe. Your thought process is NOT that you are playing the present rack of balls on the table, like some other pool games; you really should be thinking that you are playing the entire match on each attempt in terms of strategy, simply because any world class 14.1 player has 150 point run ability at any given time. In this case, the shot % is probably 50% for a pro player, so you do NOT shoot it - especially with the rack breaking result if you miss! Two things to keep in mind- try to never leave the table to your opponent on a missed shot or bad safe, secondly, 14.1 is as much a game of " knowing what you don't do" as it is a game of shotmaking.

Of course in real life where the rest of us are not playing someone who is a threat to run out at any time, shots like this can be a good proposition. If I can run through two or three racks at any time and I know my opponent really can't get through one rack and on to the next, I'm more apt to go for it.

It's not the wrong play necessarily, only when you are playing TH.

It would depend on the score, also if it were in the beginning of the set and I had not hit many or not warmed up - I would probly play safe. Jeanette Lee is a great student of 14.1, I have seen her win several matches in a row against some of the best young talent there is today.

Been there and done that.
And no I would play a safe.
Not trying to nit pick ya here measureman but if hit with low spin on the white (possibly losing whitey up table) the stroke speed can be relatively medium to soft. I think I would rather play it with a firm stroke and top spin on white however, never know for sure till I'm at the table.

If I'm playing a weak player I might go for it.
If I'm playing you I'm playing safe.
I like my chances of out safeing you than give you a wide open table to run balls.

Russian Magic chalk is the nuts.
Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

I heard it's better to play the table than the opponent, I know that is easier said than done. I hope you would not want to lose to me and rather to another measureman. :-) I learned from Sigel that early on in a set if he had a 50/50 shot he would choose the conservative shot. Towards the end of set or tournament his idea was that he would play the shot, as if not ready to pocket that ball then - he would never be. It was good advice - imagine that a World Champion offering solid advice. (They left my $1,000.00 dollar cue and stole the Russian chalk) that IS strong and gave me a good laugh. Very good promo for the magic russian chalk Sir.

I started playing in 1961 in N.J. when straight pool was king.
There were tons of great and real good straight pool players around Jersey-N.Y. and Philly.
Most played a conservative type game.
I'm not going for a low percentage shot and you hit me with a 50 ball run was the thought.
If you want to run 50 then earn it by out safing me.
Then the straight pool game faded and 9 ball was the game.
As straight pool came back it was played by 9 ball players that would take more chances and played more wide open,at least thats the way I see it.
So learning to play that conservative style i had to get pretty good at safety play and still to this day believe I can play safe with anybody at straight pool.

And yes they really did still steal my last cube of Magic chalk,LOL.
