    The only mandatory placement in an 8-Ball rack, is the 8-ball in the middle, the other balls are just highs, & lows, and the top ball on the foot spot, and the cue ball behind the head-line.

    @veit0036 They just need to be opposite. It can stripe left solid right or vice versa. BCA rules.

    @veit0036 No, look up the APA rules, he’s right.

    The first one is wrong, it should be stripe in the bottom left, and solid in the bottom right. BCA rules.

    @NguyenEmpir3 Either side, the both should have a dot.

    Can you rack on either ends of the pool table or just the one with the dot?

    people that frequent bars must not understand physics very well. they do what seems fair. but it is actually completely opposite of fair. its a triangle, not a square. solid, stripe,solid is unfair to the stripe side. all three of the corner balls are solid and keeps them along the sides of the pool table if hit properly. while the stripes remain towards the middle. the only way to do it completely fair is randomization.

    technically in BCA rules it’s eight in the middle and a solid and stripe at each corner and it doesn’t matter where the one is. but his second rack is the one I usually use anyway. he should’ve explained that most importantly the three head balls must be FROZEN not even 1/100th of a centimeter away from one another. as far as how high or low I’d rather have the balls racked low than high. when the sardo rack started being used they put the nine on the spot so people wouldn’t make as many balls
