    omg every video ive been to is no what I wanted. I want the rules of the game not some tricks

    for rules try looking up APA, BCA, or TAP they all have there own youtube videos now, and there is also bar rules which may chance depending on location, time of day, temperature, body fat %, color of felt, color of your eyes. sorry…. but bar pool is not pool, its a fight over the rules.

    He’s wrong! The 1 ball does not need to be in the front!

    Question what happens if the 8 ball is on the pocket and completely block by two of the opponents balls and is hes turn to shoot and fails to hit any of his ball in order not pocket the 8 ball by mistake and loose the game, I know this a foul and this is ball in hand, but i then i have no way to hit the 8 ball because is block, in this case doesn’t the shooter of the balls in front of the 8 ball has to hit them,Can he just shoot without hitting his target balls in front of 8 ball.

    @ProdigyKimXP takes 5 seconds to rack the balls in a specific order, and a good player can easily take advantage of an uneven rack

    who want 2 play against me ….. better 4 him not 2 …… because he will lose

    BCA rules for rack = 8 in middle. Corner balls/wing balls are opposite suites. That’s it! I find it hilarious how people spend even more than a minute making them in a specific order. Does not matter. They spread differently every time.

    I did an experiment. Racked all the balls in the EXACT same order for about a week when I was practicing for an 8 ball tourney. Not once did I see any resemblance in the spread. Making the rules random just speeds up the racking time.

  11. ProdigyKimXP on September 26, 2011 at 3:20 am

    @FlushingBoyNY BCA rules require that only the corner balls be opposite (stripe solid) and 8 in the middle. THAT’S IT! I’m mostly a 9 ball player but in my little experience of 8 ball, the order DOES NOT matter at all. You get a different spread every time unless you break soft which… no one should be allowed to break soft in an 8 ball rack.

    We only get one life and I think its high time this game gets an overhaul and if we don’t at least try to make this game better, then who? ever will. Please have a look at my new rules for this game and let me know what you think.

    wow this god nice shot

  14. crazybandit35 on September 26, 2011 at 5:33 am

    and let me add three more rules in which are optional 1.if you make a solid or stripe on the break you have to shoot that group of balls 2.you can play simple 8-ball in which you only have to call the 8-ball 3.everybody should know this one if you sink the 8-ball on the break without scratching you win but if you sink the 8-ball on the break and scratch you auomatically lose the rack

    look at the size of the pockets no wonder ur good

  16. nman48 on September 26, 2011 at 6:24 am

    Why the 1 at the apex? Numbers have no meaning, just stripes or solids.

    thx

  25. NicoA1990 on September 26, 2011 at 11:38 am

    what happens if you have potted all of your balls and there’s only the black ball left and one of the opponents ball.
    What happens if you then pot the black ball but hit the opponents ball first? did you then win our lose the game?
