Hey AZB, I always put input into others polls, so I wanted to start one of my own...

What game do YOU personally enjoy watching more at top caliber play AND why?

8-Ball
9-Ball
10-Ball
14.1 Straight Pool
One Pocket
Banks

I know I didn't include them ALL, so if you pick "other" please leave which game your would choose.

Thanks for your input
Carl

Just voted and got to see the results. 40% for one pocket(including me). I guess it must be all the diffrent type of shots you see. But for the less serious players I think it would have to be 9-ball or 8-ball cause thats what they know.

I still love watching top-caliber 8-ball the most, as long as the conditions are tough. Nothing still has beaten the enjoyment I've had watching 8-ball matches on the IPT.

Rotation games are too darn predictable. 14.1 is too mechanical for my tastes. I would vote one pocket only if it was Efren playing.

Ima hafta go with 10b or 1p.

Scratch that, 3c billiards crushes them both. Watching the CB travel a path 30'+ and then slow roll/ spin into the score is badass...

3C, then 14.1.

10b because the break is less a factor (unless you're SVB) because we make less balls so it requires trickier runouts.

14.1 too for the decision making

I voted other because football is the best game to watch. Now if I was wanting to watch a game of POOL, I would prefer to watch a game of Banks.

14.1 without question. Best game to play and best game to watch, especially if a true champion of the game is running balls. Love to see the patterns and strategy unfold, right before your eyes. :thumbup:

10 ball since it has all the necessary components, break, position and safes without most of the luck factor, 14.1 next for pure position, shooting and strategy.

I voted "other", because 3 cushion was not listed.

Favorite pocket games would be 14.1 followed by 8 ball on a 7 ft. Diamond.

Thanks to Fast Lenny, I am now a fan of 1 pocket and it ranks above 9 & 10 ball.

Least favorite? Anything on a bar box.

Yeah I agree, I voted for 8-ball as well. It needs to be played on a tight pocketed and bigger table. The 10-foot tables people are thinking might be a good switch for pro play would be awesome for 8-ball at the pro level as long as the pockets are cut fairly tight. On a table like that pattern play and position would be critical as Earl and Shane were both scared to shoot longer and tougher shots.

8-ball on that exact 10-foot table Shane and Earl did battle on would be a tough game with alot less chances to duck. It would be awesome.
