Why is it so easy to pot on break off in UK Pool,literally guaranteed but not in 9 ball? There needs to be more even distribution,either make UK harder or 9 Ball easier. Alot of players play UK because it is so easy lets be honest,there isnt alot of skill involved in those beach balls and bucket pockets.

There is skill trying to clear in one visit, the amount of people who fail is large (i mean from the off not pot three, play safe, then clear).

Not many except likes is Tension, Mich, Imran, Pirate, Turtle and few other top players can clear from that position

I beg to differ.

The potting off the break is all about the break itself. Uk is probably the hardest to play in terms of fouling, tactics etc as the 2 shot carry practically gurantees a loss if you miss.

Just experiment with new breaks in 9 ball, and it won't be as bad for you.

I can see what you mean here, if you play real 8uk, most of us including pro will pot on the break, but also pros will pot on 7-8/10 out of 9us breaks.

I have known of people on here that do pot well, it is just down to technique. Ask Ash or someone similar who have perfected a type of break

That's because the runout specialists are usually on the 8uk table though ^ plus it's the most popular type
