This could be totally dorky to every other pool player but this is how my buddy and I warm up for bar table tournys. I call it 8 ball banks. You take 4 solids and 4 stripes and rack the 8 where the 9 would normally go. Pretty much play it like 8 ball except you bank every ball. Solid in the front stripe in the back and a solid and stripe in every row thereafter.After you break and make a ball you choose your set of balls and any balls made on the break spot. A lot of safeties can be played as well as offense and it gets us in stroke (for us lol) faster than just running balls out. Of course there could be some fine tuning to the game I just think it is a fun twist to warming up for tournys and would like to hear all of your guys thoughts on it. Please keep the uneeded negativity to a min, I just would like to hear your thoughts on it and maybe some ideas to make it a better game to warm up with. Thanks in advance.
