I'm not a fan having three balls on legal breaks having to settle on the top half of the table, but at least have them break the center string on the break to insure against soft breaks. They enforced this rule at the US Open and it voided some borderline breaks when the player was trying to cut break a hair too softly in order to make one ball and get position.

As for the racking, the reason why I said 4 and 5 on the wings is because those are the easiest made balls on the break.

If you allow the 2 and 3 on the wings, the player could just make one of those balls, then set up another low ball and the one ball up by the head of the table. Or, they could set up a low ball on the footspot near the nine for a quick combo.

If you put the 7 or 8 on the wings, they would be also be able to have the end balls all huddled near the foot of the table for the end of the racks. Hence, I figured the middle balls on the wings would be the most neutral.

Breaker shoots after a legal break.

Recognize a 1/2 ball 30 degree cut, and the 1/8 ball angles.
Paralysis by aiming analysis happens by thinking too much.

To play at top speed.. You must own the stop shot line.
