Default Which pocket do YOU to prefer to break to playin 1 pocket?

I was having a "debate" with Artie today, about what pocket a,"right-handed" or "left-handed" player should break the balls to, playing One Pocket!

Needless to say, we had a "difference" of opinion on this topic!

Just wondering what any of the members have to say about their choice and WHY.

I changed the wording in case someone replies, that they "rail" break to a pocket!

The pocket where I can walk up and shoot this in. I don't shoot well off handed.

Evidently I'm right handed. Can't reach this shot from the other side,
Rod.

GOOD point, Rod! I'm sure others will agree.

.......I've tried to convince Him it's an awesome ability....and He needs to embrace it.....

As far as I can tell there is about an equal number of advantages each way. I'd rather take the pocket my opponent seems to like or go with any detected table softness. (I stated those backasswards... table first, opponent second.)

....a definite consideration.......I want my Opponant..to be uncomfortable as possible.....I'd light a match under his foot....if I thought I could get away with it.....

Really, you prefer shooting across your body rather that away from it ?
