You just made 4 ball on the break... Do you see any interesting shots or move in this layout?

This is a toughie with a few answers the most aggressive is trying the 2-9 kick combo with left english trying to leave the 2 up table and holding the CB down table. If I were playing a top player I would do this because the push option up or down table gives any great player too many options.

If I am playing a weaker player I would push up table. A down table push toward the bottom rail is another option if playing against a weaker player most of them will miss that long thin cut by a mile but will usually try it.

I think I would rather push in this situation...it is somehow risky to try..but I didnt know where is the best position to push.It has a high chance to try on 9 if the push is inappropriate :smile:

if the 2-9 is a dead straight to the pocket.. I will bank. if not push out at lower end where he would have thin opening at the 2.
placement of the push-out is critical... it's do or die, rest of the balls is rather easy.

I would go two rails for a kick on the two ball hitting the two ball short taking it toward the Head of the table near the center - leaving the two ball at the foot hopefully hidden.

I'd go for a push at the far end rail. The 2-9 looks dead on but risky.
tsk tsk tsk....

If trying for a kick shot combo cross corner is what you're looking for, it's pretty risky. Going right of the 9 and 2 ball is the only possibility. This is what it'd look like:



Judging by the angle, it might be extremely difficult to do. Going the other way is probably as difficult because you have to hit it very thin to have it hit the 9 correctly. Like this:



Neither looks like a good idea to try.

I agree I think the 2 rail kick is the right shot here. :clap:
