I would push up to the same rail as the 8 ball. The jump shot doesn't help you much because you aren't guaranteed shape on the shot… and you certainly aren't guaranteed a good angle after the jump shot to play position.
Take it easy, buddy....I'm just trying to work my way through college.Crusty? Do you mean like a crustacean?

We know many in the poolrooms who were called one thing or another and that's the only way we knew them:wink:. For example "Plastic".
Draw with left english is what Buddy used. You can see it, and the commentators even said it. The shot can be made with draw or follow or middle cb. The reason for using draw is so that the cb has follow when it comes off the rail. If you use follow, the cb will have draw drag coming off the rail. Left spin is what causes the cb to curve back in. Using no english will only put follow or draw on the cb after contact with the bottom rail. It won't change the angle much at all.
I have shot shots like this many times. It looks very impressive, but really is not that hard at all. If you aren't familiar with this shot, work with it for ten minutes. You will add a new "escape" to your arsenal.
I don't think there is any follow, really. Definitely none by the time it travels 8.5 ft.
After the hook ,it is just rolling.
Pretty obvious that a lot of players on here don't know or understand the shot. I suggest trying it on a pool table and reporting back.
Calm down there, buddy. No need to bust out the Kung-fu English.. You are scaring the pro players. In fact, Kung fu English is the reason pro players don't post here for long. And it is why pool, as a sport is in the gutter. And it is why blownus ball failed, plus it is the cause if the well known and always sad thing that we
The pro way to shoot the shot would include draw ,IMO...though if you want the cb to stay near where it hits the 3, draw would probably not be the way to go.
So, the jump is definitely the best chance for the win.
I march no longer- I'm done with war.
How do you know?
My bad, sorry.
The pro way to shoot a shot?? How about the right way, your way.
I've never walk up to a shot and thought, how would a PRO shoot this. YOU?:smile:
The war is done.. you guys win. Bunch of bullies anyways.
Two quick thoughts
1. I wonder if you can rank individuals skill level based on reading their responses to these types of questions. In other words, can you read some posts and say… "thats definitely a C player"….
2. I wonder if the answers would read differently if the question was… "What would you do from here if you were hill-hill playing a race for 1000.00…"…. I think that is the best way to really find out what people think is the best way to play the shot…
Could you be as so kind to point them out, just wanna make sure were on the same page. I understand what Buddy done, all I said is, this isn't the only way it can be done.
Am I wrong? I have a table and yes its obvious some just don't get it.
To each there own, auf wiedersehen. :smile:
