The balls are not touching the other when they're sitting on top of a racking aid. There's no friction to interfere with the balls moving on the break, it's not pool anymore whe. You can predict the break shot!!

First I'll talk about Kaci.

If this guy did this on an hour sleep and with a 5 hour after having a night of fun with the girl he is not only the player I envy the most but let's face it. He could beat us all in his sleep. He's that good! He is among the very few players I am looking forward to seeing in the future. I would drive and pay to watch him play.

10 ball
Nope never played it. Thanks for the comments. They have helped me better understand the game and it looks more appealing to me now. I now see a game that I should have a good shot on the 1,2,3 to get started in most cases with the expectation that I should be able to run out. I like that and I'm going to start practicing it. Should be fun.

And Mr. Snake under the table. I was trying to form this more as a question then a statement of cheating by the players. I have never played the game and I am trying to learn about pattern racking for fun. I don't gamble but I do want to have fun on dates and with friends, etc. It's my understanding and belief that ball placement and inspecting the rack is part of the game.

BTW. the internet is worldwide which means people of all English skill levels can communicate and do on various levels. I'm sorry my language skills don't meet up to your approval but perhaps you can be a little more sympathetic to others who's lives you might effect in the global thing we call the internet.

The every 2 year stress days are over and I will check out fricking grammerly now. I hate background apps like this burning up cpu, memory, and so on. But let's see what I can do.

Ain't it special my word check now thinks Ain't is a word.

Thanks for your comments everyone.

One would think it would be to their advantage to know a little more about the subject they're about to comment on before blindly doing so, as to avoid ones own foot in their mouth. And just a thought, when I was Kaci's age, I use to play non stop from after work on Friday until I we t to bed Sunday night, every weekend!! But adding another 4 year + years on your life will make those days just a memory!!!

Snake under the table!!!!

There is a special character in the English language to accomplish this and prevent misunderstandings. It looks like this ?

Nice try though.

So in other words, you want to know if there's a way to cheat when racking so that you'll have an advantage playing your friends for......fun, because winning is fun, anyway you can.....AIN'T that about right??😂

I think the 2 and 3 on the corners make runouts a little tougher most of the time. When you smash the rack hard enough to really spread the balls then the 2 and 3 will wrap around the top corners and head back towards opposite foot corners, sometimes one goes in, sometimes they meet at the head rail and clash (usually with a center table break), but a lot of times for me they end up in the foot area of the table, where there is more likely to be traffic and they’re about 3/4 table away from the 1 ball, possibly giving a tough route.

Of course when you’re breaking and playing well none of that seems to happen, or matter much, but I don’t think the 2-3 on the corners necessarily helps to get a run started.

Actually she was. But it was intentional, to give both players an equal chance, theoretically.

Alex never gets a shot and well that's because the hot chick was pattern racking for the hot guy. Assuming they are hot. idk but take a look yourself and watch her picking the balls for certain places and then always ending up with the 2 and three in the corners and the 10 in the middle. 9 never makes it to the back row, she seems to like that five in the back row, etc, over and over. but you guys are the experts, take a look!

Oh and at the start of the video they mention how he didn't get much sleep last night and then at the end he says how he only got an hour. Then he played like a champ. so you might wonder if that was also due to a boost of you know it.. 5 hour energy!

Please leave the tin foil hats on for 30 minutes or until you forget this.

Way I learned 10 ball it was always 1, 2, and 3 on the corners.
No biggie.

I liked what he said to a guy that was talking to him about all those 10 Ball racks he ran. He said he has run more before and so has a lot of the guys that he plays against.

He tipped his hat to other players and did not boast on him self and wins and looses with class. I like his style of play, even though it can be slow.

Unfortunately, this produces the same layouts far too often, removing some of the game's skill, and it's also boring for the viewer. Pattern racking is a serious problem, but thanks to the continuing change to neutral racker in the most significant events (neutral racker already used in the International 9-ball, US Open 9-ball, World 9-ball, World 10-ball, and the Mosconi Cup), it is, at last, being addressed.

I do favor neutral racker with a triangle.
