So I have been keeping track of all my local tournament stats as far as percentage of balls made versus balls missed, which I think is what fargo basically is...and I calculate it to about 1200 fargo rating. Is that good? I've been trying to find a fargo calculator to check my math.

That's not how fargo works. It's a pretty guarded secret.

If you were to take ball in hand after break, how many balls can you run on a rack of 9B? At 1200 you could probably run 30 racks in a row without breaking a sweat.

Actually, it's not guarded at all. Anyone with all the data could do the calculations and get the same results. The formulas have been published.

The hard part is to get the data, which is only games won/lost in matches.

seeing how the BEST in the world are about 800 i'd say you're data and/or calculations are just a TAD off.

I’ve heard if you play with a TAD cue you play in the 900-1000 range.

Is this the North Korean Fargo Rate system?

If it's like their golf, dear leader once made 18 hole in 1's - then quit as the game was too easy.

Trying to equally handicap Group of people is IMHO a tough task.

Too many capable to favor in to make any system fair.

The do not using any handicapping in Olympics, but no one cries.

Every person has equal chance at Gold, or a Medal. Some athletes just are better. Best of best win a Medal, other just got to try to win.

As far as I can tell you’re somehow running out 10 ball while playing 9 ball . . . So yeah pretty pretty good

So.... Is the secret out?

Or is the secret that there is no secret?

It's so confusing...
