Hello I’m Richard on behalf of expertvillage.com
we just completed a legal break in the game of nine ball and what I’m going to go over
now is a little bit of the strategies on the push out between what we talked about earlier.
This situation here the one ball was pocketed on the break, the two ball is the next object
ball on the table, the three ball is in the way. My options are either kick at the two
ball and try to make a legal hit on the two ball or I can push out. If I chose to push
out the strategies begin with …push out I go push out to anywhere on this area here
where I want to leave myself a shot on the two if my opponent passes the shot back to
me. But, at the same time if I do push out into here I’m leaving him a pretty good shot
and he probably would pass on it he would probably take the shot and he would roll.
So in this particular case I’m looking at possible pushing out to this part of the table.
If I push out somewhere between the four and the nine ball and I leave him a shot at the
two ball he is going he may pass it back to me. He may take it but the thing of it is
if he passes it back to me at less I do have a shot on the two ball. The one place I do
not want to push out is somewhere in this area. If I were to shoot this cue ball and
push out in here then obviously I’m not going to leave myself a shot I’m going to be hooked
by the eight or the four and then my opponent would pass the shot back to me and in that
case I will be required to execute a legal shot on the two ball or forfeit the ball and
hand it to my opponent. So I will attempt to try to push the cue ball back down into
this area and then see what my opponent has to do after that.
