you got a bunch of shots across table 3 rails, or around table 5 or 7 rails, that is my choice.

I got a feeling that someone like Jasper's is playing your three times across off the other white....
....those shots are hard on my head....:angry:

2 other shots. off left side of red and drop in behind the white. this way you get position if you are looking for more.

another is a simple off the white and 3 rails,, long short long for the point.

I am, and I bet your not, because anyone who's visited that forum knows it's 5 times more baren and less active than azbilliards carom,
Which makes it a ghost town

Just saying

I would play a 1/3 ball hit on the white with max left. Your ball hits around two 1/2 diamond on opposite long rail and "goochers" the top left corner for the point.

A few ideas that i see are: you could try and play two rails first into the white with a full hit and try and come out of the corner you are in with a fair amount of spin (two rails first-long then short ; and then short and long). Also, a very safe shot is to play short rail first into the white (leaving it on the rail or close to it) with a bit of hold up and try and come out of the top right corner with object ball speed. You could also play two rails first and try and catch the white thin on top and then long rail, red ball.

When i played three cushion and was left with difficult situations I would look for good leaves or to play off the ball could make the better hit on. Congrats on the new high run.

I agree...a basic shot that a good player rarely misses.i am about 20% on those 3rails variations :mad:

That's what worked for me, but I had already missed a shot I tried before that one

I'll make that elusive 6 soon enough

so did you shoot the different shots you could have made, you asked for advice on the shot.

me, personally, i'd be going off the left side of the white and go long, short, long for the hit. only other shot i see, since you can see the right portion of your cueball, if you're really comfortable hitting the red super thin from there you could clip the left side with max right spin and try to come in behind the white. i'd definitely shoot the first shot, though.

all I seee is a 7 railer thin off the left side of the red with a little right english and whack it for all your worth.
At least if you miss , you will look good doing it!
That seems to be the gist of the game anyway.
