Opponent pockets the 4 but goes around the rack without breaking a ball out, then plays safe on the rack.

My only shot is the 10 to get out of jail.
Then use the 8 to break the rack some more.
And get more breakage with the 9, drawing into the 13, but that's the start of my trouble...
I use the 15 in a botched attempt to break the cluster, and only make it worse.

In the next shot, on the 3 ball, I try to get short side shape on the 13-14 cluster,
but fall too high on the 13 and I get so frustrated I poke the 5 ball with a one-handed air shot instead of using the bridge. Totally stupid, but it went in, only to leave me with a low percentage combination 11 into the 7 in the side.
Then the 11 in the side to drop down on the 2 so I can break the cluster but I gave it too much right hand english.

In my last attempt to get the cluster, I abandon the idea of breaking them up and decide to use my break ball, the 6, to go three rails using inside (right) english, and it works like a charm. Finally!! What an absolutely pretty shot, even if I do have to say so myself. And fun, too!!

Now, sinking the trouble balls is easy, but unfortunately, I get a little too straight on the 1 ball so I have to really smack it in order to get shape on the final ball, the 12, for the break shot, and to continue my run.

As with all great runs, it ends badly.
