    Why are people arguing about 8-Ball racks, as long as the 8’s in the center it’s find to me.

    @VincentLauria6 its not required but if you are going to rack this is how you should do it and 99% of the time the rackers will rack this way.

    @gtq838 Why don’t you peep this….. “Roberto Gomez v Ronnie Alcano in 8-Ball Hotseat Match Galveston World Classic” look at minute 27:50….. Looks to me like the 1-ball is NOT the head ball….. Get your facts straight first….

    @VincentLauria6 for beginner tourneys maybe. watch any pro level game and you wil see…

    the universal rack that is accepted at every tourney and league except bca of course. is 1 ball in front, eight in middle, solid strip all the way around and then the last two ball, numbers 14 and 15 swaped everybody accepts that rack and thats why everybody uses it.

    @gtq838 ….. Maybe you should play more tournaments as well as crack open the rule book….. This is in PERFECT accordance with the rules…..

    @lilmyster2k5 70’s suburban style is what your thinking of, not official rules

    i like to rack according to colors…starting at 1 on spot and following left of rack as 1-9, 2-10,3-11, 4-12, 5-13, 6-14, 8 in center 7-15 below 8……This gives u 8 in center 1 on spot, alternating hi-low’s, and looks sexy….although base corners are both solids whatever……

    he did correctly rack. the rules only specify that the three corners must have 2 of one and one of the other. random everything else. and nine ball is random accept the 1 and 9
