  • Triangle used at the World Pool

    I was watching the World Pool Championships from Milton Keynes yesterday [ thank God it's on , as there isn't a great deal of other sport to watch ] and i'm intrigued as to know why they have a triangle [ rectangle actually ! ] placed onto the baize then the referee places the balls on top of it .

    After the player breaks the referee then removes this very thin triangle .

    It appeared to prevent the 9 ball from moving very far in one rack that i saw .

    Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !

    I think these are called Magic Pool Rack or something like that.

      Ok , but i'm still non the wiser as to what it actually is used for ? Keeping the balls in the rack tighter possibly ?

        Found this online : The Magic Rack is a flimsy piece of plastic with strategically made holes in it to place the balls on and when squeezed together the balls fall inwards and form a perfect rack. ... At this level with these types of players a perfect rack while racking your own in the order you choose results in a break and run contest.

          oops apologies Neil, yes they are designed to keep a tight pack together without (supposedly) affecting the roll of any ball.
