### What are the odds of sinking 8 ball on the break in pool?

5% for a good player. The chances of sinking the 8 on the break
are different based on the size of the table and the skill of the
player. If you get a lot of ball action, the ratio of pocket
opening space to rail space is greater on a 7 foot table than an 8,
and an 8 is better than a 9. However, most 8 ball on the break
shots are performed without the 8 ball going off any rails, and it
goes in a side pocket. To increase your chances, the cue ball must
be placed nearly next to the head string and the rail. The contact
point is a matter of preference, but the most recommended for the
shot is slight follow.

### What are the odds of making the 8 ball on the break in a pool game?

Assuming a properly executed break, about 1/8 breaks. The odds
increase the smaller the table - a good player will make the 8 ball
5% of the time on a none foot table. This will nearly double on a 7
foot table. The pockets are the same size on all pool tables in the
US, so the smaller the table the greater open space and less
distance to travel.

### How do you rack the balls in eight ball?

The easiest way to rack in 8 ball is by number. Start with the
one followed by the nine then the two and ten then three and
eleven. When you get to the five and thirteen put the thirteen
first. The reason is tournament rules state "not to have a solid in
either corner to reduce the odds of having multiple solids going in
off the break" place the eight ball in the middle and break!

### Odds of rolling a 7 twice in a row on craps?

Odds of rolling seven once (2 dice) is 1:6, twice in a row, odds
are 1:36. The reason is- the first die can be any number, but the
second die must be a particular number. For example, if the first
die is 6, then the second die has to be 1 to make 7. When an event
occurs twice, and the two events are unrelated, then you can
multiply the odds together= 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36.
