9ball did to billiards what hiphop did to america
My high slope run in straight pool I lucked 27 big ball's into the holes
I agree with call shots at straight pool and banks.
All the other games, I refuse to play call shots.
Some people can't seem to comprehend that call shots at nine and ten ball takes skill
OUT of the game.
...and call shot with the option is the worst.
I feel this is a result of players (the kind who sit there and hope you miss) having too much
to say about how the game should be played.
Take that shit back to 'bar rules'.
...and I think "slop" is one of those weasel words....sneaking in one's opinion like it's a given.
...akin to "Are you still beating your wife?"
You don't want to get beat by luck?......keep your opponent in his chair.

Perhaps that is because you can run out...
Slop is indisputably part of the game which is unfortunate but don't think it should even count
and you should lose the inning to your opponent because of it and he gets the table as it lays.
If the played object ball "unintentionally" caroms off another object ball and that deflects the
called object ball into the intended pocket that it otherwise would have missed were it not for
the aforementioned accidental carom, the player should forfeit the table......I don't care if it
happened on a bank shot. You should declare the kiss shot into the pocket before playing it.
I realize that undoubtedly jars a lot of pool players but it certainly would immediately distinguish
the best of the best & doesn't that occur on any given night in any given city in most pool halls?
I just don't think luck should be a factor in determining the outcome and I know that it can be in
any competition. It just seems it's a lot more common in pool, especially since the rules allow it.
