    Rod.
    P.S. I've played at least 100 games giving up scratches don't count. The ideal situation you speak of is a not a reality.
    That's just like you Rod, always throwing water on the fire (or is it gas?).

    As usual, you are on target. Glad I revived this thread.

      I think the disagreements are more about what one ball is worth -- especially to the weaker player -- than about what one free push is worth, because we know the push is worth one ball, right?

        If he had 8 pushes, he'd be a winner. Right.

          Heh. Seems more likely he'd be even instead of 8 in the hole.

          There's no question that gaining a ball usually has a different value toward winning the game than not losing a ball -- sometimes more, sometimes less -- but a ball is a ball, whatever it contributes toward the eventual outcome.

          Artie was really talking about what you're talking about... the effect on the eventual outcome which is the REAL vaue... and that's what all of us should care most about.

          Just to be sure I can get you to agree with me I'll admit that I'm talking about something stupider... that a ball is a ball.

            Yep no doubt about it. Although I'll never agree with Artie.
