A perfect break by R. Goud. notice how both pockets are blocked and he has a bomb shot at his disposal. Here Louis plays a defensive shot and Srinivas dumps his straight coin into a safe area Here Srinivas dumps Chamils straight coin into a safe area to earn an extra turn Here Chamil executes a perfect drag. Notice how he uses the opponents coin to free the pocket and drags the board along with a queen shot. Here another drag by R. Goud on a failed break. Same technique of freeing the pocket. Dual benefits. Here Fernando has to free the down pocket and also take advantage of the queen reverse shot. Here Fernando uses the same technique of freeing the top pocket using the opponents coin and drag the board. Srinivas dragging his difficult coin while taking advantage of a reverse shot. Here Srinivas using the same technique and dragging all the coins to his favour.He also manages to remove Ghufrans bomb shot. What do you do when you have a position like this and you need to finish to win the match. This must be done only in dire situations. Very often the most difficult coin could become the catalyst in finishing the board. In this shot the border white was meant to come to the lower base in order to be used as a bomb but it landed perfectly in the upper line. Hope to see you in the finals too. Cheers and good luck!
