Starting to get much more into 9-ball and was wondering if there is an
optimal rack? Especially when you're giving an an opponent the 8.
I always rack in this pattern... just because it seems to distribute
the balls evenly.

I figure you often make the 6 or 8 depending on the side you're
breaking on, so if your giving the 8 you might as well let your
opponent make it off the break because it will either stay down or be
spotted. (in the rules I've played anyways)
