The color of money

“9-ball is rotation pool.

The balls are pocketed in numbered order. The only ball that means anything…that wins it,

is the 9.

The player can shoot eight trick shots in a row…blow the 9 and lose.

On the other hand, the player can get the 9 in on the break, if the balls spread right, and win.

Which is to say that luck plays a part in 9-ball.

But for some players… luck itself is an art.”
