8 Ball, What Do You Do? - 11-21-2011, 10:27 PM

The bank might be 50% at best if you know the table really well, curious as to what you would do in this situation? You are the 8 ball here...it may be easier if you were the 3 ball since the jump over the 8 is relatively easy.



You could combo the 3 ball in and try to get the 8 ball to rest on the rail next to the side pocket...would need perfect speed.

How many times out of 10 do you think you could follow the 3 ball into the side instead!

What I would do is a 3-rails banks to the side pocket from where the cue ball starts. It is not as hard as it sounds, just try it, cut the object ball to the right, hitting the cue ball with right english and pretty hard, and the applied english + contact induced english will revert the object ball really spectacular.
I saw this shot in a trick shot event, and then I tried it on my table and I started to make it pretty often, it's an easy shot once you learn it.

I would cut it into a corner.
The bank works surprisingly well in your video. But I have never practiced that type of bank, so I would still try to cut it.


Professionals have standards:
Be polite.
Be efficient.
Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Yep same thing indeed...

On a side note - do you have any idea who the girl in your avatar is? I watched a short clip of her dressing up (she was wearing the same bra as in your picture), she's really gorgeous, but I have no idea who she is, model or something...

The 3 rail bank in the side was my first choice as well lol a buddy of mine showed me that trick years ago and I always wanted to pull it out in a game when the opponent was happy about where he left the balls.
