The Broken Rack has an old Brunswick. Next stop north is Petaluma with Søren Søgaards, IIRC

Broken rack (As far as I now) is closed for good at least in the original incarnation.

the world of pool has gone from all bigger poolrooms having a 3 cushion table or two, to almost none. too bad.
ive been in a couple asian rooms and they are all billiard tables of some kind and size but they play games i didnt know and felt very unwelcome when i went in.

The Broken Rack moved from the shopping mall near the movie theater (on Shellmound at 60th) to a stand alone building about four blocks south. Their website says they are closed for the pandemic and please check back for updates.

I am afraid that Wayne and Marilyn have sold this business and where unable to make money before the pandemic so when I drove past it Thursday there was construction going on as well as a post from Wayne saying goodbye to the broken rack

Bummer. I'll miss their two Diamonds. Tough to make money at pool around here. They seemed to have pretty good business in the evenings but the rent was probably amazing.

The use and specs for the Bridige has never been codified. I mean the height and configuration of the bridge itself. I can only find that you cannot use more than two bridiges atop each other for a shot. That was remedied by manufacturing bridiges that can reach eight inches in height now found everywhere. Pool has tended to place rules on the game itself not the equipment. Certain rules due pertain to the height of the table and dimensions and etc. but little to the supporting equipment itself i.e. "the bridge."

Well, since we are on this topic again, here's a thought. Suppose you make a finger bridge with the hand holding the bridge and then lift the butt of the bridge off the table, how high could you go? 😨

Thanks Baby Huey, as you know there are bridges that not only adjustable higher, but also have a special curve that allows you to jump over a ball out in the middle of the table that you could not otherwise reach.
A bridge that is specifically designed for jumping.
You could be playing a left hander, and so you leave him knowing it is a difficult jump shot to reach, but not for a righty, but no, out comes the jump bridge.
It would not effect OP, but other games. Just another tool in your bag of tricks to play this game. The one cue days are long gone. Whitey

About 4 feet, then you would be in the lights, sorry couldn't resist.

Depends on the light fixture. I've seen in pro play, someone move it/hold it so a player can get their cue/vertical.
