i think i know the break, as it was utilized for a while before proper break rules were in place. it does favor the breaker if he is good enough to run out a congested rack. properly executed the opponent will be shooting from the bottom rail and most often push out, right?Calling it a soft break is probably not the best way to describe it. It was a safety break where no more than 1 or 2 balls hit the rail. The way it worked out, I either had to push and he had an advantage to do a lock up safe, or I could hit the lowest ball, but it was impossible to safe him. The games just worked out where I never had a good opportunity to safe him.
