Terms for Running a Rack in 9-ball - 04-24-2003, 05:45 PM

On Ralph Souquet's site, he uses the term "Ace" to mean running the rack in 9-ball. For example he says "I won 11-7 with 5 aces. I'm making the assumption he means 5 break & runs and not that he made the 9 on the break 5 times.

Are there other terms that are used, locally or otherwise, to indicate running a complete rack. I can't think of any others except run-out but a run-out can be from any ball and does not mean you ran the rack.

Just wondering?

In snooker they talk about clearences.

The "ace" on Souquet's site must originate from German language... are there any Germans/Austrians here?

Yeah… I got lucky – is normally what I say.

To add to Battleready’s definition, Packs are associated with stringing several break and runs together. 4 packs are good, 6 packs are great and 12 packs are just awesome.

Locally I’ve also heard amongst some Arab nationalities say jokingly - “Iran Iraq” after running a rack.
