Break Stats -- 2016 US Open 10-Ball Championship, July 2016 - 07-22-2016, 09:35 PM

Here are some aggregate break statistics from the 2016 US Open 10-Ball Championship, played the past three days at the Rio Las Vegas Resort & Casino. The promoter, CueSports International, provided pay-per-view streaming.

Conditions -- The conditions for this call-shot 10-Ball event included:
- Diamond 7-foot table with 4" pro-cut corner pockets;
- Simonis 860 Tournament Blue cloth;
- Cyclop TV balls, including the red-spot cue ball;
- jump cues allowed;
- breaker racks using the Magic Rack template with the 2- and 3-balls on the back corners;
- alternating breaks from anywhere behind the head string;
- cue-ball fouls only;
- opponent has choice to shoot or return the shot if a called ball goes in the wrong pocket or a ball is made on a safety; and
- spot any 10-ball made on the break.

These stats are for all 14 streamed matches, which were 14% of the event's 102 total matches:

Wednesday, July 20
  • Danny Smith defeated Mike Dechaine 10-1 (stats exclude last two games, which were conceded)
  • Oscar Dominguez d. Donny Mills 10-3
  • Corey Deuel d. Ernesto Dominguez 10-6
  • Jason Klatt d. Justin Bergman 10-9
  • Billy Thorpe d. Thorsten Hohmann 10-8

Thursday, July 21
  • Shane Van Boening d. Skyler Woodward 10-5
  • O. Dominguez d. Alex Pagulayan 10-9
  • Rodrigo Geronimo d. Thorpe 10-5
  • Rodney Morris d. Van Boening 10-7
  • Woodward d. O. Dominguez 10-9

Friday, July 22
  • John Morra d. Geronimo 10-8
  • Morra d. Woodward 10-7
  • Van Boening d. Morra 10-6 (semifinals)
  • Van Boening d. Morris 13-8 (finals)

Overall results -- The breaker made at least one ball and did not foul 79% of the time (183 of 232), won 59% of the games (138 of 232), and broke and ran 38% of the games (89 of 232).

Here's a more detailed breakdown of the 232 games.

Breaker made at least one ball and did not foul:
  • • Breaker won the game: 127 (55% of the 232 games)
  • • Breaker lost the game: 56 (24%)

Breaker fouled on the break:
  • • Breaker won the game: 3 (1%)
  • • Breaker lost the game: 16 (7%)

Breaker broke dry (without fouling):
  • • Breaker won the game: 8 (3%)
  • • Breaker lost the game: 22 (9%)

Therefore, whereas the breaker won 59% (138) of all 232 games,
  • • He won 69% (127 of 183) of the games in which he made at least one ball on the break and did not foul.
  • • He won 16% (3 of 19) of the games in which he fouled on the break.
  • • He won 27% (8 of 30) of the games in which he broke dry but did not foul.
  • • He won 22% (11 of 49) of the games in which he either fouled on the break or broke dry without fouling.

Break-and-run games: The 89 break-and-run games represented 38% of all 232 games, 64% of the 138 games won by the breaker, and 49% of the 183 games in which the break was successful (made a ball and didn't foul).

With alternating breaks, B&R "packages" of the normal type are not possible. But we can still look at the breaks of a given player and see how many he ran on his own successive breaks, and we can call these "alternate-break packages." The 89 break-and-run games consisted of 1 alternate-break 6-pack (by Morris in the hot-seat match against Van Boening), 6 alternate-break 3-packs, 10 alternate-break 2-packs, and 45 singles.

10-balls on the break: The 10-ball was made on the break only once (0.4% of the 232 breaks), and it was spotted rather than counting as a game win. With the Magic Rack, the 10-ball tends to remain close to its original position.
