There is an old proposition bet with six hangers in six pockets. I call the ball you have to shoot each shot. Lots of players have trouble making six hangers and getting the cue ball to the middle of the table each time. Of course the hangers in the corner pockets are frozen to the long cushion as far into the pocket as they will stay.I always make an attempt to pocket an opponent's hangers in 8 ball. You can get almost anywhere on the table using a hanger.
