    How long before a home table pays off?

    When we play a race to 100, playing league rule 8 ball, I save $22 in table fees plus I can drink a $ can of budwiser(off sale price) as opposed to tree-fiddy up the block at the VFW.Love my MAN CAVE

    What's the rule?

    VNEA rule from the vnea rule book: 2. If the cue ball is pocketed or driven off the table,or the requirements of the Break are not met,it is a foul and the incoming player has cue ball in hand anywhere on the table.

    Marking the Long String ?

    Life of a cue ball
