I'm only about 6 months into playing one pocket but IMHO John hit the first 6 ball shot wrong. If he had rattled it Lou would have had the shot for the win.
To me, John should have rolled up a bit & taken that shot away in case he rattled the 6 ball.
If done properly he still would have had the shot on the 8.
Best Wishes 2 ALL.
These are 4.5 inch pockets, he's dead straight in (or close to it) and a short way away from the ball, not only is the shot easy, but he doesn't have any work to do with the position. Also he's shooting into the pocket diagonally (not close to the rail). In those circumstances, if you can't make the ball, then there is no way you can win the race. No need for any two way shots on that, IMO.
100% Agree with Straightpool.
