There you go. That's how we played Ring Ten Ball for years, with the same rules as 9-Ball. Adding one ball made running the rack about 20% harder imo.
By the way, it's MUCH harder to make the 10 on the break than it is to make the 9 ball. It may only happen once out of forty or fifty racks, if that.
