Nothing but champions in the thread.
I think the differentiation factor is how you see the table for your stroke and abilities. I shot the out to “C” a few times with no issue. That’s how I play. You may be able to get out more times than me in that situation, but we each need to get out once to win.Right! I might not be the greatest shooter on the planet but, after 40 years of playing I know a thing or two about pool and playing. Going for that seven in the lower corner is a mistake. Of course you can get on it but you certainly limited on options if you don’t. You only take shots like that if you have no other option.

It‘s 50/50 “C” or “E’. If you get out, you win. Play for your stroke.

Well 'pots', this kettle isn't a champion of anything, but like everyone else on this forum I have an opinion. Mine happens to differ from yours. Like I said earlier in this thread, I think there's value to including the level at which one plays to their opinion.Right!
Totally agree.... and although they usually end in some type of divide and snide comments, these threads imo are the best conversations on the forum.When someone posts a "what would you do here?" shot, we each have our own preferences based on our habits and strengths. Trying what others suggest can often lead to learning something about your specific preferences. So I always shoot these shots several times for each option, just to see if my initial option actually does work best for me, or if there's a better option I could start using.
Ya, I can't say for certain if I'd go to E if I were playing on a Valley table.I suppose on a valley barbox, or a table with 5" buckets, playing for C would be a lot more forgiving.
There are a ton of statements made by various people on this thread that I could have commented on.With this shot, I went for pocket E 10 times, and then pocket C 10 times. Then I did each option again 10 more times. I got out 19 out of 20 times with pocket E, despite a couple of times getting straight in or on the wrong side of the 7.
With pocket C my results were poor, 12 out of 20. If the position wasn't just right, I'd find myself having to force the cb to get a shot on the 8, and this caused me to rattle the 7 a few times. I never missed the 7 going to E. The margin for error is just so much bigger for pocket E.
User detected!Not really. When you lay it out on a real table like I did you do not have enough angle to drive the cue ball off the end rail and straight up table with high english without really pounding it. Move it one ball closer to the end rail where it would have to be in order for the line to point to below the 2nd diamond and it's just a smooth natural stroke like Sharivari does in his video.
So we are here debating the shot like the ten blind men and the elephant. All the while Sharivari started the thread never to be seen again.
I've seen some of your videos and you aint the JVWell 'pots', this kettle isn't a champion of anything, but like everyone else on this forum I have an opinion. Mine happens to differ from yours.

There's only two senarios.
1: You have the ability to use natural paths and control the CB with follow
E = confident play
C = scared play
2: You don't have the ability to navigate with natural paths and struggle with CB follow
E = scared play
C = safe play
Note 'confident' only shows up once in the above. If you want to play scared, that's your right.
I thought of this thread yesterday morning while playing the 9b ghost. I was shooting the 8 to reach the nine, and the two balls were pretty close to the same locations to the 6 and 7 in the OP's pattern. Never guess what I did... ...I played the same two rails and came out great on the nine to the E pocket... No big whoop really. No different than the vast majority would play the last two balls on the table. I just got a chuckle of how some here are so terrified of that 9 ball snooker.
I like pocket E drawing off the side rail and out, pockets A and B are fraught with peril unless stroked with precise draw off the sixHello guys,
I am doing some research for a possible future video. Could you give me your vote on the pocket of your choice for the seven ball? I allowed to choose multiple pockets, in case you are trying to have multiple options depending on your accuracy in cue ball control.
This is the 9 Ball situation you're facing:
