Either you are being sarcastic or you should not play one pocket. The game you have described has no resemblance to one pocket. Don't play the game if you don't want to. Every good one pocket player will tell you the same thing....They started out hating and avoiding one pocket and they came to the conclusion that you need every bit of table knowledge, imagination, and stroke to play it well. Now if they have to choose a game, any game, it's one pocket. Learn the game. It will improve your concentration in all the other games.
It was obviously a joke, the person was describing 9/10 ball..... wow
