A while back some whwere on here was a great tutorial. It was a picture of a tables from above after the balls had been broke. ou would figure your strategy of running the table then look at how another person did it. Anyone know where this has gone. It was in the magazines as well.

Hey Ricky:

Mason King, BD managing editor, here. I think you're referring to "Run This Rack," which was a feature that we ran in 2003-2005. We didn't get a ton of response from readers in the form of their completed runouts via mail so we dropped the feature. However, once we start enabling Cue Table diagrams for the BD site, I'd totally be into running the feature on the web site again. Does that sound interesting to anyone?

Might extend it to games other than 9-ball, and have varying degrees of difficulty (beginner --> expert).

08-12-2008, 11:26 AM
yeah, that would be great.

Is there any out in archive that you know of?

This can be easily done by anyone using the cuetable.com software. You see it quite often over on AZB. There's even a random break feature.

The person that owns "Cuetable" is Wei Chao. Wei participates in many forums and (I believe) allows anyone to use his program.

I think this would be great. It sounds like "Match the masters" drill in chess

Yep, like Mason said, in the BD issues from '03, '04 & '05. You'd have to buy, or trade for the back issues. That shouldn't be hard. BD has lots of back issues, and many sell for $1...plus there are 1000's of those issues out there.
