Yes, he did....in Grady's Legends tournament, which I played in, that was held in Columbia, South Carolina in, I think 2002, we used the 'Grady rule'.

Its basically one group of people having a different "opinion" about things that are not set in stone.

Very, very few things are set in stone. Most everything has variations. 1hole is no different.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

That could be an option. You are right, giving any ball is sometimes too big an advantage but equally you just donít take a scratch in those situations

I stand corrected then. I didnít know there had been the Legends tournaments other than those four recorded by Accu-stats.

In the first one which was also held in Columbia, SC Grady introduced a rule of one intentional per game which raised quite a bit of controversy among players (e.g. how one interprets a two or three rail kick which misses a ball by the opponentís pocket) and was abandoned in later tournaments

I have seen and been told if you gamble large and play the champions you need to say before a ball is hit the third push is loss of game. Not in a row either. Kills alot of moves.
They will just push until they can make them all. Stops that.

Iíd rather play a round of golf, or watch grass grow.

The former is quicker and the latter more exciting.

Rules I'd use.

Intentionals, at least minus two. Subsequent intentionals more. Minus 5 each sounds good or a constant incrementing of the damage; or just plain ball in hand.

Play to the last ball of each rack and just keep a running total.

i say to those who have similar feelings about onepocket
its probably because you dont understand it
and admire the intricacies of the game,
a well played safety or a pocket speed bank that just dribbles into the pocket or carom
or understanding how one player is out thinking the other
are all things of beauty and immense enjoyment to me........
but i guess there is chocolate and vanilla for reasons......
I play all of the games.
One pocket takes every ounce of pool knowledge you have in your tool box.
Sooner or later in a pool playing career you figure that out.

Hope you're well BBB.

You are correct.
Goes for 14.1 too.
As a matter of fact let's get rid of bar boxes and bring back ten footers.

a good player looks at an 8 ball open table or a 9 ball open table and should be able to know how all the balls in his runout are going. just a matter of if he can execute his plan or not.

in one pocket the table is ever changing and it isnt who the best shooter and position player is who wins. it adds in who is the smartest and knows what is the highest percentage shots for him to take.

so it appeals to a different mindset of players.

Just one of the many unique things about 1 pocket:

Virtually every shot must be a two-way on a difficult shot that leaves your opponent shotless but leaves you with a followup. That's also what's happening against you.

My favorite aspect of 1 pocket is probably what others don't like:

It's more like martial arts sparring - you're both throwing punches back and forth, usually changing player each shot, reacting to the position you've been put in and trying to return the favor. Single-player performances with multi-ball runs are the exception.
