C = 15-30 balls

I've also seen C players run 14, make the break shot and have no shape. If they make it through the second rack, they choke on the second break shot. But like they say, even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

B = 30+ balls

Once you get into the next few racks, you will see where your 14.1 knowledge lies.

A = 80-100 balls+

I've seen A players run 60+ with ease.



But don't take my opinion as gospel. Ultimately, we are still trying to rank players' skill level with letter grades.

When I ran the 30+ as a D player (or what I'd consider myself), IIRC, it was 34 balls with two break shots. Starting the game with 14 in the stack and a setup break shot in the corner.
