10 Ball Last - 08-26-2019, 08:51 AM

I like the 10 Ball Last rule for the pro game. It was a cool thing to see the pro's have to run the entire rack by plan.

Of these three i'd take TS 9ball. My favorite game is modified-WPA 10ball. Same rules with one exception: you can carom/combo the 10b(called of course) to win. IMO its more fun to play and watch. 10b last might be a tad tougher but its not as good to watch. Just my $.02, nothin' else.

Out of the 3 options given by the OP, I would say 10ball WC.

IMO it would be good to the same rules used for more comps.

I much prefer Zuglanís 9-ball rules.
To me, call shots and no early money balls reeks of Ďbar rulesí thinking.

If were voting then i would go with 10 ball rules, not last ball. I like the TS rules for everything else.
Edit. Hmm looks like i agree with the cigar czar

What's wrong with called shots at the pro level? I know they don't s%^t too many in but it still happens.

There is skill in playing for multiple outcomes when youíre in a trap.

One of many examples
9-ball....7-8-9 are left...7-ball in middle of end rail...one inch off rail.
..8-ball...one diamond away on same rail
9-ball near the pocket on the other side of the same same rail
Cue-ball...other end of the table...3 inches off the rail..just gotta cut the 7 a bit for long bank.

From that distance, I donít feel like a favorite to make the bank
..and I donít feel like a favorite to carom the 8...(.9-ball to far up for carom)
So I jacked up with a hair of low left english
...if I play the bank AND the carom I feel Iím much closer to even money to get out

I made both...and cut the 9-ball in for the match...

3-cushion is rife with these situations...so itís more obvious that calling everything would
take skill OUT of the game.

Tomorrow Iíll take a pic of the situation

Zuglanís rules for me are the best of these three. Iíd put the WPA World 10-ball as the worst.

In the end, the rulesets didnít effect the outcome. The best playing players won the respective events.

I prefer the US Open 9 ball rules to any others. Winner breaks loser racks. You did not have a 4th choice. If any of those events have winner break loser rack, that would be the event I would choose.

Any of your 3 event choices....do it this way?

Having played and beaten almost every top player in winner break rotation pool tournaments, I will never change my position on this point of view.

In rotation pool, it's the job of the winner to break, as its the job of the loser of the last rack to legally rack the balls in such an order/manner, to NOT allow the breaker to make a ball.

It' the ONLY defense you have when it's played in this correct manner. There's nothing better than seeing large packages in a match and the fight back. The breaker racking their own is too much ''letting the fox'' in the henhouse.

Winner break matches are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay faster....while ones racking the others preparing their break and rolling the balls from the upper pockets to you, good use of time.

Was very enjoyable watching Neils at Mandalay, break and run a 6 pack on Orcullo outta the gate

Turning Stone is Winner Breaks from the box, loser racks. There was very little rack checking. I don't know if Zuglan was enforcing that.

I was also wondering if any actual matches would have turned out differently, had they been played by one of the other rule sets.

The best player wins if you turned a fire hose on the table...
..and had to shoot odd-numbered balls jacked up one-hand...
...but it would make the game ugly
