Soft Break vs a Hard Break.
Is there a time and place to switch up and get an avantage? Comments on all games Welcomed

Bluey2King <hr /></blockquote>Sure. When the corner ball (assuming 9-ball) goes in and the balls still spread. If the corner ball isn't going in on a harder break, you've got nothing to lose by going to the softer break.

In the local rapid-fire 8ball tournament, I noticed that I made a ball on the break more often when I hit the head ball softer than I would have on a 9ball break.
