9 Ball - Istanbul is easier than Dallas

No guidelines is easier for me than calling pockets on all shots. What is your opinion?

EDIT: I forgot the fact that you can't aim before calling the pocket, it makes a huge difference. Hope they fix this.

    My opinion is that what you said does not make any sense. Due to the fact that guidelines afford you the opportunity to aim better, there is no reasonable reason why anyone would dislike guidelines. No guidines, means less success potting shots. So if no guidelines is your preference, it is more likely so because you are simply slamming the cue, and are hoping something goes down...

    The fact that you can't aim before calling a pocket is the way the game is designed to be. This is not a glitch and I highly doubt it will ever get "fixed".

    Sorry!

    I'm not slamming, but it makes sense just because there is a better chance of potting when all pockets are available, not just the one to call. Just noticed this in the long run, better results in no guidelines than pocket calling. But like I added later, there's a hinder when you can't aim before calling the pocket.

    "Highly doubt" - you don't know that for a fact then. I hope it is something they have to change.

    I hope not. It's a good feature having to pick the pocket first. Takes good judgment occasionally that's all :)

    Even in Istanbul table there are many hit-and-hope players. All they do is to hit with full power hoping they might pot the 9 and win the game.
