Have a merry christmas!! I thought that your contributions to the thread were pretty good. I learned a lot from your replies.Wow, you big time boys really need to get over yourselves. If your going to reply, at least read the post. I clearly stated, playing safe behind the twelve, was the best option. I originally found this thread intriguing, now it’s just become tiresome BS, later. Merry Christmas
I apologized once already for the misunderstanding. I skimmed through the thread and you mention playing the 15 in the side, the 10 bank, and the safety options. I hope you can see why I was off track.Wow, you big time boys really need to get over yourselves. If your going to reply, at least read the post.

The ticky doesn't look makeable and you're all exposed if it hangs.
There are far more treacherous cuts in an average snooker break. I think moving the 10 ball into position is the challenge. It has to stop where the 6 ball won't obstruct breaking out the 14.You aren't going to make the 11 in the side, but let's just say you did, you have nothing left. As most others have said, ducking is the only option.
Then I wouldn’t shoot it. But if it lays right that close to the pocket it can be a high percentage shot with natural shape for the other trouble ball. The wild card is the 5 - what will it screw up when it’s kicked out of there?The ticky doesn't look makeable
Looks froze but even with some air there's not enough apparent angle for the diagrammed speed. If you're like me you'd hit it harder to make sure. That gives the five a chance to disappear but just as likely, hang or worse come back out and tie up the 10, 11. Positive thing-king you know.
Safety for me. Thin the 14 , opening it up. Go 3 rails with cue ball passing the one. Then to back rail then side rail. Leaving the cue ball possibly behind the 12 - safe either way if you get it to the side rail.Looks like some people need better screens...lol 1 ball is clearly by itself up the long rail. The cue ball is near the foot spot.
Stripes are screwed from where the CB lays. You could try the miracle 10 bank carom off the 5, but I'd bet against Alex or Efren on making that the first try.
Smart shot is a safe. Glance off the 15 one rail between the side pocket and the 1 ball. Leave it top rail in the corner. The only available shot for solids would be the cut on the 6. Everything else is covered or un-makeable from there.
If the opponent is world class or making everything then I'd probably swing for the very low percentage 15 in the side, and pray that I get perfect on the 10 to break out the 14.
