Tom, I of course agree. I am a true time capsule for I haven't played OP since '73. During that era we always racked for the opponent.
Your comment along with my way of thinking is why I started...

Opponent Racking vs. Racking Your Own

Currently we are once again having a thread on racking your own and what to do if a ball is scored. This re-occurring subject is spurned by the fact the standard rule of opponent racking is now...

Scoring a ball and then sitting down just does not compute when also the breaker has sold out big time to the opponent's hole, so therefore I was never a fan of this.

I've seen Cory Duel make the corner ball time after time on the break playing 8 ball. He gets to rack his own. You have to wonder if he has got some secret tweak!
Pretty simple solution, go back to...

At the 2019 MOT players meeting in Philly was this even brought up. If so what break rules did the players decide to play by?

At Cal. Billiards 2018 MOT players meeting, the making of a ball on the break never came up. Therefore it was of little importance to the member players! Whitey

A good rule of thum for cues is 57" is a 17" balance point, such as our past Straight Pool Master's played with. 57-1/2" cue would be 17-1/2", and 58" is 18". Whitey

On a 7' table a lighter cue can be a benefit, it gives you more feel and your stroke can be let out a little more. But sometimes the cb is heavy then it takes more force to draw the ball. I use a 16...

Yes, exactly! thanks Steve!
One thing that is glaringly obvious is the players seating at the head of the table, that IMO will take a toll on Tony, the extra walking. If I was Tony I would always...
