You forgot one. An ignorant attempt in making the rack tight.

Why?

Is it possible to pound a round sphere into a flat surface?

NO!
You are absolutely right. According to the most fundamental laws
of physics only spherical cubes can be pounded into a flat surface.
Galileo proved this when he dropped a Bocci ball from the Leaning Tower of Pisa and it remained a round sphere. If I recall correctly, he was excommunicated from the Catholic church for making this discovery.

Pounding the ball into the slate will cause a little divot and the ball will settle into that divot. Only problem is that people constantly pounding the ball make divots all around the spot that eventually turn into one big divot and you're back to square 1. But, it's inevitable. The cue ball does not hit the head ball straight on, it's actually a tad bit off the table and coming down on the head ball. Breaking alone will cause those divots. 9-ball is hell on a table.

You're right, that might be the winner although I see most people at this point think it is perfectly acceptable.

What are you wanting to bet on? That pounding the ball into the table doesn't leave a divot in the slate? If it doesn't then please explain what those little dents are that I feel around the foot spot of just about any table in any pool room? Hey, I'll gladly concede the point if you can explain why the dents are there.

I don't think it's acceptable because I think it ruins the table. But I do think it's a necessary evil at times. I'm just as guilty of it as anyone else. I try not avoid doing that as much as possible but some tables are just so bad that you can't keep from it.

All this can be avoided by using one of those page hole reinforcment stickies as a foot spot.

The ball will sit peacefully in the middle of it everytime and you don't have to bang the hell out of your table.

My method is to let the one ball roll into one of the divots and then snug the rack up to the one ball. You might have to move the one ball a couple times and it might not be in the center of the foot spot but it works for me.
