    @RLongAZ51 are there leagies if you break and? make the 8, you re-rack, & re-break.

    SuperMonkey, that is correct.?

    @RLongAZ51 if you foul on the break, and then sink the 8, is that a free win, turned into a loss. If you’re? playing bar rules.

    That depends on whose rules you play by. Some leagies consider it a win (as long as you don’t commit a foul at the same? time) and some leagues require you to spot the ball up and continue shooting.

    Question. Are you aloud to sink? the 8 ball on the break?

    @mmacritics Placing the bridge hand closer to the cue ball allows for more accuracy on the cue ball hit, and the power is generated by the speed used and a long follow through. But, different things? work for different people, so use whatever works best for you. And yes, you can put the cue ball anywhere behind the line.

    Thank you for your comments.

    In my and my fathers opinion, putting the cue ball more backwards gives you the opportunity to use a closed hand bridge on the pool table? side and thus being able to hit the cue ball alot harder and more accurate. And also, isnt it smarter to put your hand further along the back of the cue stick to gain more power? These are just questions and opinions, and id like to know what you think about them :)
    Also, can i put the cue ball anywhere behind the line?

    You missed? the part about squatting the ball, and utilizing several breaks as well as how to load your body?
