[8-Ball] What's the shot here? - 10-07-2012, 04:10 AM

This came up last night as we were playing scotch doubles with my teammates and as so often we had a minor argument about the correct shot:

I played position for the 4 to the upper right corner, succeeded, and we ran out. One of my teammates didn't like the shot and insisted that safety was clearly the only option. I did not want to give our opponents an opportunity on the table but I do see this is a great opportunity to make an easy safety.

What are your opinions?

If the safety if more difficult than taking the shot you should take the shot. The exception would be taking a shot that could lose the game but not win the game. One last (but important) consideration is how well you and your opponents play.
