Great solution. I wish I had thought of it...RiverCity said:
If the 7-ball goes, then the only crucial item is to leave an angle on the 6-ball so that you can slide across the table for the 7-ball up table.sjm said:

I wouldn't play the combination (5-8-7) because the angle to get to the 6-ball IMO is dicey if you let that 5-ball go.

I would just shoot the 5, then the 6, and then the 7, then the 8 and then the 9 last !!!!
Jimmy I like your out the best. Pretty simple and not much to do but to get fair shape on the six. I would be careful not to draw the first shot like RiverCity suggests because I might lose the 5 ball by it taking some forward roll.Jimmy M. said:I'd shoot the 5 into the left-hand side of the 8, pocketing the 7, pushing the 8 down the rail toward the corner pocket, and leaving the 5 in front of the side. Then I'd think it's pretty routine. It does leave it where you have to go back and forth because you'll end up with the 6 and 8 on opposite rails, but it should be easy enough. From the 5, you just need to get back to around the middle of the table so you can pocket the six, then come off the rail and get relatively straight on the 8. I'd diagram it but I don't have time right now.
