Obviously if you break and make all of your balls, it's a "runout," but would you consider any of these "runouts" or "table runs?" Or just nothing. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

• Opponent breaks, makes no balls, you take the table and make all your balls
• Opponent breaks, makes a bunch of balls, misses the 8-ball, you take table and make all your balls
• You break, make no balls, your opponent makes some and misses, and then you make all yours

<font color="blue"> all of these are runouts. Maybe you mean to ask the difference in runout and break and run? </font color>

I agree, everyone around here considerse a one visit trip to the eight ball a runout. We don't "score" an empty break, then a runnout on your next visit because you've been to the table twice. Although i think they should imo. St.

in one of our local leagues, a runout,aka table run (TR),is scored when either player makes all 7 stripes or solids and the 8-ball in one inning, regardless of when the inning occurs during the game.

Cool, thanks. I had a really good night last night then. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The only reason I ask is that on TV, I think I only ever hear people talk about break and run, but last night someone suggested to me that I had a "runout" even though I didn't break. I had just never heard it used that way before, but I guess it is common. Don't get me wrong, the more ways there are to accomplish a runout, the better.

Perhaps it's different in 9-ball, because you're shooting at the same balls. It would be pretty ridiculous to call it a runout for you if your opponent breaks and runs to the 9 and then misses, and then you make the 9. That's not going to happen in 8-ball.
