Maybe I'm just too OLD to change but if you rack the balls and make a ball on the break, just keep shooting. Why should you be penalized for racking the balls well and making a ball on the break? In nine ball its an advantage for the bottom balls to be racked loose as we see in the wing ball flying in the hole. In one pocket the balls all have to be frozen for a ball to potentially be made. So, you rack the balls frozen and split the first two balls EXACTLY perfect and make a ball and now you're penalized? Backwards pool IMO.

Pretty much!

I like rack your own, and if you make a ball on the break, congratulations, and keep shooting. I don't know anyone that can make them consistently, and if they start, you can bet I'm going to be inspecting every rack.
Re-rack also eliminates break and runs, which are pretty rare in 1 pocket. I want another one someday.
