2 in the corner, medium soft hit, low left @7:30...

Highball, no english just judge that speed to get back above the 6 ball.

The temptation to play for the five is understandable but realize that trying to get perfect on the 5 ball next might have left the cueball short...

Which could make this runout difficult, the 3 ball is sitting too good to get on the 5 and there's no since wasting a good key ball...


Playing for a runout, this is the way for me...

Cut the 4 in with a high ball and no english, the rail will put a little right english on the cueball...

Stroke the cue while standing in the air addressing this shot, feel the grip pressure required for the speed desired...

Trying to runout with red is not a viable option
with red you'll have to kiss some balls which
should be avoided if possible...   

Do you see my pattern from here? 

There can be more than 1 pattern but w all of them Saving the 3 as the key ball for the 5 or last before the 8 is my only thought... 3 is Key...

Before scrolling down study this table, don't cheat...

Tables Open. Your turn. What balls do you choose?What's your first shot?

  1/2 to 1 tip of right center medium firm is perfect...                           1/2 tip of right center medium, perfect...                                  High ball no english, excellent runout...
