If you are playing players at your speed shouldn't you win about the same percentage of the time regardless of the rules? Or are you one of those players that never seem to get good rolls or any luck?

Myth... I always get unlucky rolls and my opponent always gets lucky. :-)

Perhaps I should clarify a few things. When I say my speed I mean that both players can run out an open rack about equally well but one of us might be better at kicking, banking or playing safe.

So assume I am the one who is better at kicking.

When we play lucky nine ball and I play them safe they can kick it and get lucky and leave me no shot or by making it.

If they get safe then I am then at a disadvantage because even if I kick them safe on purpose they still have the opportunity to get lucky just blasting away.

But in the same situation they have to make a decision to either try to play safe or go for the shot and this means that they are a disadvantage because of the their lack of skill and I have an advantage because I have more skill in that area.

So, on net, playing the same players, I win more often when it's call shot/call safe than when it's all luck counts. I believe where players are relatively equal call shot/call safe games do more to refine and reward the small differences in skill.

Thank god the NBA has the rule where the ball must go directly into the net without touching the rim or backboard. Now we just need to make it mandatory to call alley-oops
