    Yup, you’re right about that. I just always make sure I arrive early to get my buzz and get 3 or 4 games in to get used to it.

    def the way to approach it.

    MY FAULT lmao

    im in class and read it way too fast haha

    i didnt see the part where u talked about the 3 inches haha damn i suck…..

    which tourneys are you playing in??

    -Lester-

    I’m pretty sure your original reasoning was correct… If you want to shoot from 8.5ft away, you need to draw a line 6 inches behind a WS table.

    Ok, haha. I think his original thnking of a 9 inch line behind each side is correct. If you take their 7.5ft table and put a 12 inch line behind each side that makes the two lines 9.5ft apart.

    So if you take a WSOBP table which is 8ft. YOu would need to put a line 9 inches from both sides to make the lines 9.5ft apart. SO i am pretty sure that he was right originally

    Isn’t this some shit. How many pong players does it take to figure this out.

    I’m kind of thinking I was wrong initially. I think if it’s a 7.5 foot table with a 12 inch line, you are standing 8.5 ft away from the end of the table, so for an 8 footer, a 6 inch line should be correct.

    Jesus, I feel like I was just partying with Michael Phelps.

    The 6 inches is definitely correct. You need to shoot 8.5ft.

    Using the 7.5′ + 2*12" = 9.5′ logic is incorrect since you are not shooting over the entire 9.5ft.

    fact: they measure 12 inches back from a 7.5ft table
    if a table is 7.5 feet long, and you measure 12 inches back, it becomes 8.5 feet
    if a table is 8ft long, and you measure 6 inches back, it becomes 8.5 feet

    Word on the street is they are attempting to get 8ft tables for the actual $25k tournament itself.

    I will be running satellites for this and all I have are 8ft tables so thats what we are going on. 8ft with leaning.

    I will also be running a satellite at the Thirsty Turtle, Baker, and the rules won’t be that gay no worries.

    think about this……if a table was 8.5 feet long there would be no need for a foul line and it would be 8.5 feet from table end to table end

    i love this beer pong riddle LOL

    the truth of the matter is……it may be 9.5 ft from line to line, but when u subtract ur opponents 12 inches (cuz your not shooting on those inches) its 8.5ft…….on an 8ft table it may be 9ft from line to line, but when u subtract ur opponents 6inches (cuz ur not shooting on those inches) its 8.5ft.

    yes, it’s definitely 8.5 or a 6 inch line behind a BPong table.
