I have seen this referenced before, I wonder why you want to scratch off the black?[/QUOTE]

The black spot on a 6x12 was the red-ball spot at English billiards...that game predates
snooker.......a red and two cue balls at that ......there were three ways of scoring....
...make a carom, make the red, or go in-off either ball..( called a losing hazard)....
....so that half ball angle was important for the cue ball also.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.
