Yes it is. It's just not call ball. Usually the pocket is called only once per rack but that seems to be enough. And sometimes it's implied.
oh please, gimme a break here. you must be real fun at parties. take off your pocket protector before going?? ;)

Should it say Call your ball? Not pocket. Nothing has to be called. But let’s stay obvious

I feel a huge part of the game is playing low percentage shots as long as they are safe or free. A few stragglers are bound to leak in given enough time and shots. The funny thing is sometimes its better to not make the ball and leave it hanging
Absolutely. And a part of that is knowing the speed and angle to hit the kiss/herd/bank/carom shots both to get as much useful movement as possible and to get a safe.

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that ping.

Once you get onto this in 1P you can really get the 9B players cussing "luck" and "rolls."

I don't have the heart to tell them that there's a reason they never have a shot, and another slop shot dribbled in (yay for way shots). Better yet if you can carom/combo off an OB or two and make the 9B. It's real funny to see some reactions. Never let on like it was intentional, it will drive them crazy! :ROFLMAO:

If you hang the 9 in 1P, it might work out well. In 9 ball its almost an automatic loss.
