Winner Announcement 07.02.2009

Video Origin
This contest layout was drawn from the 7th game in 2002 World Pool-Billiard Team Cup, Yang Chin-Shun Vs Hsia Hui-Kai (go to 5:20 of the 4th video). It's a race to 7 match. Prior to this game Yang had already done 6 break-n-runs from the lag and this could be his chance to shut out his opponent. Although there are occasions it might be better for him to play safeties. The idea of a complete shut out is too tempting and he had displayed some talents in this game he lost. He ended up losing the match as well

That's a hell of a run out if someone actually got out from there. The first big problem is making the 2 and falling on the 3. Neil's 2 shot look nearly impossible to execute, although the 2nd shot where he breaks up the 7-9 is very clever if it's available. I think I would play position for the 3 like this:
You could then cinch the 3 in the side. Cut the 4 and use a big draw stroke to break open the 7-9, and hopefully leave yourself a shot on the 7.
