I agree. It reminds me of the wacky 7-ball rules they tried in some TV tournaments where a missed shot gives ball in hand to the opponent. Run out or else - it removed all safety play from the game.

Why take away strategies from good games??

I'm with you 110% on this but I gotta say, for lower level players BIH may not be a bad idea in the beginning so it gives them a chance to start picking out patterns. I agree that safety play and intentional fouls need to be learned but in the beginning I think patterns take precedent. I surely wouldn't want BIH rules for official play.

Mully, in this case I have to respectfully disagree. I learned straight pool with the rules as they are and I'm sure beginners to the game will be ok doing it too.

It's the very mistakes that are made by incorrect safetys that are the teachers.

I think the safety play should be viewed as integral to the game as a whole and not as a module that can be replaced at a later date. JMHO.

For those old-fashioned people who don't like those smarty-phone things but do like paper, here is the Playpool.com scoresheet mentioned above. That site no longer exists but archive.org has all its versions and files. Here is the PDF for the legal-sized sheet:

straightscoresht.pdf

There was an Excel file that is related but the download I got was broken.

Here is what the upper-left of the page looks like:

Ball in hand? Lets not turn straight pool into 9 ball.
The rules are sacred
