Please excuse this inane post. I just learned to use the wei table and I want to try it out.

Playing race to 4 last night I lost 4-2. Two of the games I lost thusly:

Pocketed the 3-ball in pocket A, cue ball kicked 8-ball in pocket B

START(
%CN2D2%HO1M6%PT2N4%QB0A8%RA6[6%UD8Z0%VN3N6

)END

--------------------------------

Pocketed 8-ball in pocket A while drawing the CB to avoid scratch in side. CB somehow got by the 3-ball and caromed off 1-ball into pocket B.

START(
%An1E4%Cg4E8%HX6F6%P^9L8%QA6B3%Rs3B5%UD4D5%VV6F2%_ Y8G7%`[6I8
%a^4L8%bq4C9%c^2D4%dY6F1
)END

Bad rolls? More like sloppy execution. It was late.

Thanks for listening.

Hey man tell me about it...I was playing APA last night. I am a 7 and I was playing a 7..so 5-5 race. It is tied 1-1. Then this happens:

START(
%A[2]3%B[6]1%C[6]3%DZ8J4%EZ8\8%F[3\4%G[5\2%HE3V5%I_9G7%Jf8L0
%KG8H8%LK3Q5%MR8X2%Ni1P8%OM7F8%P_9U5%U[4M1%V_2T0%W[0D4%XZ9H7
%YN1H3%ZZ7L0%[J3H2%\L5H1%]D5E0%^H5G9%eB1`6
)END

make the 4 and then scratch perfectly by glancing off both his other balls. He runs the table.

The very next game:
I am running the table out and trying to break one of my remaining out I knock the 8 in:

START(
%Ah0L2%BI9J6%C[4\4%DJ2M8%E_6E9%Fm0S5%GP9G7%HH8Q2%I\3K2%J[5B1
%KF0M1%LB9B8%M[3\3%NH7I7%OC1[9%Pg9V9%U\9M5%Vf6V2%WL1K7%X[9L9
%YJ9L4%ZK0K7%[I5O7%\J1N6%]D9Y3%^H4R4%_[9D0%`\0F3%a\2I9
)END

So I was down 3-1. I did regroup and end up winning 5-4 after being down 4-2. Had to run the last two racks out to take it. But man was I frustrated by giving him two games.

Now all you have left to learn is how to post a link to the wei table when you use it! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Congrats on figuring out how to use those arrows ... that should be one of my new year's resolutions.

Too bad about those miserable shots ... I take it they were on a bar table? First one looks like the price you pay for small green and hungry pockets.

On the second, I was wondering, did you hit that with straight draw or did you throw it some with low-right? Guess you could get burned either way. Maybe it was possible to try it high-left? Not my favorite shot, either.

Thanks Sid.

Did you ever get your bridge head back? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

<font color="blue">Just left click on either end of the arrow (or in the middle) hold your mouse button down and drag it to where you want it. </font color>

<font color="blue">Yep. Bar table /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif </font color>

<font color="blue">Straight draw </font color>

<font color="blue">Perhaps my diagram doesn't show it properly but it hit the long rail before it hit the 1-ball. Had the 1-ball not been there I would not have scratched.

I've gotten some good rolls lately so this is obviously payback /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif </font color>

Thanks for tip on arrow ... and on that shot, yeah, I realized you nicked the 1 ... just was thinking that maybe by throwing it with low-right you'd have taken a bigger bite on the ball and gone to the rail a tad sooner or at least at a slightly sharper angle. Of course, cb would be spinning right toward the pocket ... just idle speculation. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
