Fargo is a good game for practice. It's a good way to keep track of your progress. Its a combination of 14-1 and rotation.

A few years ago, we (rec.sport.billiard and alt.sport.pool) had an online tournament using modified Q-skills rules. For the next online tourney, a further modification was suggested by RSB's Mike Page from Fargo, ND. The results were the rules provided in the link in the other posts. The original name that Mike suggested was Random Rotation Equal Offense (RREO).

The name was cumbersome, and the acronym wasn't a word, so through a quick suggetions poll, Flip-and-run Guts Offense (FARGO) was unanimously accepted paying tribute to its originator.
