That's impossible..not to bash the contest. You used to be able to sink the 8 ball on the break back in the old days. Contest sounds fishy sorry.

Yea there was a break on the "old" version that would sink the 8 ball but it only worked some of the time, but the new version doesn't have any such break now that I'm aware of (if you hit the 1 ball first). I am only hosting the tournament & will not be playing in it, so don't think anything is fishy. Plus my Home friends list is full of nothing but pool sharks, but I decided to have this tournament for the forum users. These are basically the same rules we used in our old tourney's & even w/ the 8 ball break you mentioned players weren't guaranteed too win since that trick only worked some of the time. Either way your welcome too enter or come watch matches!!

How you determine the winner. People quit when I play and I'm good. The camera views are awful now. I don't play it as much as I used to. Been asking for 9 ball for years.

Thank you good luck

The winner will be determined by a Race to 5 match, first player with 5 wins advances on. Hopefully players will not quit since this tourneys is just for fun (like the recent forum contests/tourneys) & not really about winning. Yea the game has changed but with a little practice I have gotten just as good as I was, so I'm sure you would too. I will not be playing as stated, just hosting. Tho I will help anyone practice that feels they need some before the tourney. Good luck if you decide to join!!

Thank you Lego! Hopefully it will be as fun as all the recent forum contests that have been held, if ppl enjoy it half as much as any of those I'll consider it a success lol. If you need someone to practice w/ just msg, also I'm sure the other players wouldn't mind helping either. So far the # of players is only 6, but entries will be accepted until April 17th so hopefully there will be many more players. Good luck & most important I hope you & everyone have fun!
