Local pool hall has a rack that holds 45 balls. Break and run as many as you can. If you dry break you get one more try.

The practice record is 32. The challenge record is 26.
Monthly payout for top 3.

$5 per attempt. $3 to pot and $2 to House. House adds $100.

(pics upload upside down. I'll take new pics and upload another day.)

You end up with so much congestion at the foot of the table.

I like Efren doing this. Wouldn't be surprised if he ran over 35 his first try. Pretty cool idea.

I play with 2 racks sometimes. It is bizarre.

Never tried any ball/ any pocket, though i might now.

As the times change, it gets easier and easier :thumbup: I thought about 3 racks, but I'm afraid I would just become a 3rd wheel :D.

Looks like the 8 is on the spot......I'd like to see a "full rack" bank game with this.:eek:

Pretty tough.

The middle ball of the 3rd row is on the spot. At Paulie's Billiards, Hobart, IN.

Rack was made local by a very talented woodworker.

I think after you run the first 30 it's clear sailing.

We've been doing this for years in Lakeland, FL. We call it the "Big Rack". We pull it out during special events as a fundraiser, $10 a try. It's a fun gaf game. I've broke and run it a couple times, but it ain't easy. The first 20 balls or so determine whether you have a chance or not.

You guys used to do it at tourneys as a side deal.. I did it there a couple times.

We ran it for a while a Pro Billiards in Orlando and the pot got pretty high..
I ended up running the 45 balls and got the cash, but it dwindled after that..

No one seems interested in Straight Pool these days too much so its not that big of a hit anymore..
