Angry Birds Poached Eggs 3 Star Walkthrough Level 2-9

Poached Eggs level 2-9 is difficult to earn 3 stars. Our strategy is to fire the Black bird just below the multitude of blocks, causing them to scatter. Then use the Blue and Yellow birds to drive your way through the remaining blocks until you reach the pig within. The score in the video below is 29,040.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

Has anyone been able to find out the method behind those highscores.
I’ve read the older comments about Level 2-9 without a clear answer.
Was it a platform discrepancy ?

The method above, with the pig popped on the first shot, can score a lot of points.

This one is ridiculous. With my phone I managed to 1-bird this ONCE in many many tries. And it only yielded me a score of 40k, which is still more than 11k behind #1. On Chrome I played this once and scored 47k+.

There are 3 1-bird solutions: on chrome I managed the score by high arcing into the two blue blocks. This is the method that gives the best scores.

The second method is the method that yielded my 40k, into the middle little woodblock.

Third method gives the lowest scoring (~35k): black bird over the ledge, detonate when you’re about 2/3rd downhill. The pig will roll to the left and come back to the right and sometimes pops.

On chrome: easy job. Phone: HARD.

Vaporizer,
Sitting on 40,410 on my droid. Played it so long ago, I can’t remember how I got it.
Fired up Chrome and got 48,460 in less than 5 minutes. Went back to my phone and played for 30 minutes and could not duplicate the 1 birder that I did in Chrome. Yes, it was the method you mentioned. I just did the high arch lob shot into the 2 blue blocks (ice, glass, whatever they are), black bird sat there, and blew the smitherines out of everything. On my phone I am having difficulty duplicating that shot.

I do not seem able to split both blocks, bottom & middle.

My tablet shut off in the middle of a different level and when it restarted ALL my scores for ABO were GONE! The levels I’d unlocked remained so and the golden eggs I’d collected were still there. Only my scores were gone. So I had to go re play each level. I used a diff method this time- I used the same as the first bird in video by @AMSlimfordy above. The only diff was I hit the structure only slightly further to the right. Poof! One birder! There was a lot of cubes left possible higher score in there…

if you fire the first black bird so it lands just above all the blocks, you could get the pig in one shot. I got 42,760 with that.

@kathy, just give it a couple of more tries. I’m replaying all the levels to improve my scores and stumbled upon this one last night. I must admit, this IS the hardest level in that respect. Been doing every imaginable methods all night long before checking in at the Nest & found another one. And what a brilliant one it was. @sunshine, you’re indeed my sunshine as morning comes. 41.800 by resting Black to the left-most woodblock (yes, the left one in the top row of three woodblocks). It took me about 20 tries in “flinging-frenzy mode” before something fell down and hit that annoying green one. Way better than spending the whole night staring at the same structure. Requires a lot of patience yes, but in AB impossible is nothing… ;)

Strategies for eagle destruction on Chrome:

– I think the best solution is to aim the bomb bird at the top of that north-west facing tower so it blows up a couple blocks without sending it flying. Next bird, clear the 3 wooden straight blocks, letting the rest of the debris fall in the space where the wooden blocks were. Then put the can at the bottom left side of the entire structure.

I was just about to give up on trying to score the average, when I hit the mythical 1-birder. Dropped the bomb from a high arc onto the square glass cubes on the upper side. When it blew, the concussion blasted the pig. Only 6,500 points from physical damage, but 5,000 for the pig and another 30,000 for the bird bonus totals up to a nice 41,550.

Hurray! I got a 1birder using the @sunshine strategy: aiming the bird at the bottom and middle wooden block in the first row. The pig was killed by the small stone block sitting above its head! It took me about 20/30 attempts only, which is nothing compared to the about 10000 shots I needed to get 3stars (with 29k) a long time ago. Thank you and good luck to everyone else trying to get over the average score!

On facebook on my laptop I found a sweet spot for aiming that gives me 1-bird succes every (!) time: after trying unsuccesfully for hundreds of times, I found that below the last step of the birds “launchpad ladder” there is a group of 4 grass straws; holding the mouse cursor at the rightmost edge of the rightmost grass just where the grass meets the ground, gives me around 45k every time.

I kept coming back day after day, flinging at the small wooden blocks with no luck. I decided to switch strategies & started arcing the bomb high over to the glass squares & nearly fell over when I got it on about my 10th try. Maybe there’s hope for you!

Same as I seem to have such a high score it would seem right to report a helpful strategy. Unfortunately I have none. Complete fluke: just opened the level, flung the BB (possibly just above horizontal) he went through the supporting struts, then tapped the screen by accident (at a very helpful some point or other) and kaboom went all the blocks and piggies. Tried to repeat it but no idea if it’s repeatable, so far all that’s happened is that the blocks clear very neatly level with the gap and the piggies grin merrily protected by their remaining wall of blocks.

Using iPad2, iOS 7.1 (HD angery birds), after reading all the struggles of prior players for the past years on this level, I didn’t think I stood a chance to get much above 41k (if lucky)….. I am replaying all AB for better scores on leaderboard hoping to hit at least in top 100.

But in “Poached Eggs”, I can see most of the higher scores might be next to impossible to get in top 100 with iPad using regular AB game with competing against some FB or chrome users (or some who might not know PU should not be used in this forum?). I figured if I can get out of the 1,000 standing and into at least top 500 I would be doing the best I can do with my platform.
With that said…..

I just kept lobbing the bomb bird into the top two glass blocks hoping for a good one bird score. I just kept repeating the first shot over and over again trying to get BB to break through the two glass/ice blocks, settle in and explode. I wouldn’t even bother with fling second bird, waste of time! ……. Final got 41k with one bird, but still only in the 300 level on leaderboard. Just kept at it, rapidly flinging BB for about 45 mins.. Then to my absolute surprise I got 48+! One bird, NO power ups, HD version of AB, on iPad2…..
