Do you mean only if it's a race to 2?
Why would you do that?? Alternate break is standard, along with either flipping (shudder) or lagging for who gets the first break. That’s what everyone knows and expects and it is totally fair. What on earth would be the advantage of flipping prior to the last break?? Somebody could easily get back to back breaks — or get the shaft and watch their opponent get an extra break. Am I missing something?
actually, it makes no difference whether you flip/lag before the first game or the last game.....and when going into the last game..nobody can be down...they will be even....when you lag or flip you have already determined who gets the last break as the order is fixed.
otherwise it is like saying the person down going into the last game automatically gets spotted a ball.
So are you suggesting skip the first game flip? Who breaks first game? Or flip for the first and re-flip for the last? By "last" I see what you mean is, if the match goes hill-hill, then you flip again -- because otherwise you would not necessarily know if it was the last game lol. But why???Exactly the point to my question!
short race to 1 now.
