  • New rules Idea

    I brought this up with Ken Shuman while I was at the us open.I've been thinking about this for along time.You know when your racking the balls for one pocket and some people think your pulling a move when you put a certain
    colored ball In the front?(nobody likes the 8ball there) Well my Idea and the one I mentioned to the reffs out there were why don't they just have a rule that It has to be a stripe or some color that doesn't seem to bother anyone In the front.Like maybe the oneball? What do ya'll think about that? Ken said he thought It was a good Idea but he may have forgotten It by now.I think It's a great Idea.Just have a
    Standered ball ( I'm thinking the 1ball).
    Hold on,
    One more..When spotting a ball I think It should be a rule that the number on the ball must point straight up.Man I have seen to many people set the number on the ball right where you have to hit It.Ya know,just a small shark.I know these seem nitpicky but why not just have the rule set? Seems pretty simple to me.Nitpicky John B.

    In all games I put the 1 ball in front, I think in one pocket putting the 1 ball in front and 2 dark balls behind it are the best bet so you can see better where you need to hit on the break.

      John,

      The US Open One Pocket tournament rules are based on the OnePocket.org rules. Where not covered by tghe OP rules, the World Standardized Rules cover the situations.

      Ken Shuman is a great TD and contributed to the restructuring of the BCA Pool League rules a few years ago. But, Ken is not connected in any way with the OnePocket or WSR orgs.

        My own preference, when I break, is to have two contrasting colors in the aiming positions - such as the 1 and the 8 or the 6 and the 5, and I don't care which one is in front. I don't like a stripe in front. Lenny has the right idea.

        Sometimes there is this problem - the front ball won't snug up in the rack. It seems to be usually a solid color, probably due to the extra use in 9 ball games, especially in an old set. We use wood racks. If you jam the balls up in the rack, and the one in the front position still can rattle, change to another ball or turn the rack and try again.
        If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

          That's a new one on me. Thanks, vapros.
          It's like the time I asked the Dentist if a person with only one tooth still had to brush for 10 minutes. He said not necessarily, and gave me a funny look.

            So It aint gonna work cause everyone does it different.That's why i think there needs to be a rule about this.Everybody's got their own little reasons.

            Ok,so what about the number pointing up when you spot the ball?What about that one?
            I don't care who makes the rules just so somebody makes some.I want the one well i want the 3 well I want... don't put that 8ball up there..are you pulling a move on me.on and on.See there needs to be a rule.Seems pretty simple to me.And on top of that I'm colored blind.lol Well whatever,just thought I would throw this out and see.I would just like to get rid of everything little thing that some people try to make moves and sharking out of.I guess If we play rack your own,then It won't matter.John B.

              My favorite Break rule option is that you rack for yourself but your opponent picks which pocket you shoot at. (supposed to eliminate biased racks)

                We pretty much play rack your own anymore, so out here it is not a problem.

                    rack your own

                    I dont know why the tournaments doesnt play rack your own. the non breaking player can inspect the rack and if there is a problem can ask for a rerack. It seems to be such a simple solution.

                      T Steamer, a person with one tooth, you say? Being the limerick nut that I am, the idea has moved me to create:

                      A practice considered uncouth
                      was pursued by a girl with one tooth,
                      But she got it entangled
                      and left me all mangled.
                      Neither one of uth knew it wath looth.
                      If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

                            Seems reasonable that the game of 1P would have racking rules just as the other games do. 8B, 14.1, 9B all have rules. why not, 1P?

                            In 14.1 the 1B & 5B are placed on the lower corners to aid sighting the break. 1P could use them & the 3B as the top triangle.
