hey everyone i've just started playing pool and been slowly getting into the sport. i've been wondering about the racking of the balls in 8-ball. is there a standard in racking other than a striped and solid ball in each corner and 8 ball in center? i've heard you're not supposed to have more than 3 of the same type of ball touching each other. is this true?

8-ball in the center, stripe on one corner, solid on other for BCA and WPA rules, others at random.

You can post questions like this on the main CCB and get more responses; the "Newbies" board is mainly to deal with how to navigate and use features of the boards.

Welcome and enjoy yourself!
