    One thing I see a lot of beginning players do is rack the balls in order (1, 2-3, 4-9-5, 6-7, 8) this is a big mistake. When a good shooter breaks He would be likely to leave the 1, 2, and 3 at the same end of the table making the run-out easier. if you make him have to travel from one end of the table to the other for the 2 or the 3 you are more likely that he will get out of line and miss a shot.

  13. bhavingandhi1 says:

    u r so wrong when it comes to racking the balls

  14. djg0490 says:

    completely wrong. on 8 and 9. your an idiot

  15. runoutman says:

    he racked both 8 and 9 correctly. you are the idiots

  16. MrAdamkennedy says:

    he did correctly rack. the rules only specify that the three corners must have 2 of one and one of the other. random everything else. and nine ball is random accept the 1 and 9

    curiosity to our opponent and ourselves? you mean courtesy?? FAIL

    @DumbestCrayon your a smart crayon

  19. culotta23 says:

    i like to rack according to colors…starting at 1 on spot and following left of rack as 1-9, 2-10,3-11, 4-12, 5-13, 6-14, 8 in center 7-15 below 8……This gives u 8 in center 1 on spot, alternating hi-low’s, and looks sexy….although base corners are both solids whatever……

    Pool is a easy game.

  23. VincentLauria6 says:

    @gtq838 ….. Maybe you should play more tournaments as well as crack open the rule book….. This is in PERFECT accordance with the rules…..

  24. gtq838 says:

    @VincentLauria6 for beginner tourneys maybe. watch any pro level game and you wil see…

    the universal rack that is accepted at every tourney and league except bca of course. is 1 ball in front, eight in middle, solid strip all the way around and then the last two ball, numbers 14 and 15 swaped everybody accepts that rack and thats why everybody uses it.
