8-Ball Break & Run Derby – Friday, August 25th @ 7:00pm
Players compete by breaking & running out the table! Every player racks their own. You get one freebie shot on the break meaning you don't have to make one on the break to continue shooting. However, if you scratch your turn is over with 0. An 8-ball break counts as 20 points. After that every ball you make counts as a point. It doesn't matter what you shoot at - be it solids or stripes - as long as the 8-ball is the last ball. Once you successfully make the 8 you'll re-rack the balls and break. You MUST make a ball on this break to continue shooting. Once you miss a shot your turn is over.
Break Bonus: If you hit (2) 8-ball breaks and NOT scratch in the current season
you get double points in the opening round!
Your 3rd & subsequent 8-ball breaks are good for a free
do-over. Every player gets a free do-over in the opening round only.
Points add up from round to round. The bottom third of the field is eliminated after the 1st round, the bottom half after the 2nd round. After round 3 only top 3 Advance. Points start fresh at 0 in Round 4, the final round.
