What Happened Too Good Ole 9-Ball??
1.Break from the box: what happened to break behind the head string?
2. No soft breaks: drive 5 balls to the rail.... right?
3. the 9 Ball is racked on the spot: what happened to the 1 being on
4. We're using the Sardo rack: is that why we have to rack the 9 on
5. No jump cues: I agree there should be limits on a jump cue.... but,
the reason there is no money is pool..... is because it is really
boring to watch... unless you know a lot about pool... like in
golf.... if someone hits the ball from 175 yards out.... and gets it
10 feet from the hole.... everyone knows ..... that was a good
The jump cue adds e***ment to the game.....
From what I have noticed, the only time the crowd gets e***d is when
the 9 goes on the break, someone shits a ball in and when someone
makes a good jump shot....
I was sitting in the stands at a pro event .... and a player missed a
relative easy shot, trying to play position... the guy sitting near me
said "damn, I could have made that shot" .... oh well..
In a few months I will be old enough to play.... I will give it a
shot... any tournaments planned for Oct. ?
