Pro Pool Players Break and Run Out Percentages


Pro Pool Players Break and Run Out Percentages

If a pro billiards player played 20 games of 8 ball, whats a realistic expectation for break and run out percentages?

Assume the game being played is 8-ball.

The more racks I get through the more I see stronger safety opportunities rather than potential run outs.

    According to some IPT stats, it looks like about 10% is typical. That is playing an opponent, so obviously you can only break and run out when you are breaking. The percent of break-and-runs of games won is more like 25% avg.

    A guy like Bustamante had a break-and-run out about 25% of all games played and they accounted for 41% of his wins.

    At that level I think if you gave them 20 racks, the top pros would often have maybe 5-7 run outs. If they start making balls on the break every time, most of them will start putting packs together and increase that number IMO.

    If I could run-out everything like some pros, I wouldn't play a lot of safeties, but where I'm at right now it is often the best choice. I do, however prefer to attempt to run it out when I think I can.
