If you want to work on your stun shots, you could allow all six pockets. Or maybe require all six.:grin-devilish: That would help with drop-pocket tables.

Well, no. The shot can be made lots of ways. Inside, outside, nothing, follow, draw.

I still see no reason to believe he played it with any left side spin.

Well, the original rules from about 1920 used reds, yellows and a black ball, so 1 and 15 would have been tough to figure out.

As for the rules at the senior center, you have to ask the other...

A much better detailed pool stats system already exists and has for about 40 years.

And if you simply want to know match odds between two players, it's hard to do better than FargoRate.

Ronnie was being slightly disingenuous, I think. Sometimes he seems to make the white ball go where he might have a good chance with the next try. Or maybe he just gets lucky a lot.;)
