Doom Break - The Physics/Maths of Pool & Snooker Breaks
What are the influencing variables when breaking off when playing pool or snooker?

I've always wondered why a pro player (so therefore assuming a high level of accuracy) wouldn't be able to pot at least one, or even more balls, every single time they break, without fail. Because there are no obvious variables - the table is set up identically, the play balls, the cue ball, everything, therefore it's all a fixed quantity every single time. So all you should need to do is hit a desired ball, at a desired angle, at a desired speed, and once perfected, why wouldn't it work?

Is the variance the tables themselves, or is the accuracy required to do it so absolute perfection, therefore not possible? Or maybe some other influencing factor(s)?

Or am I wrong, and do pro players pot balls as near as 100% of the time as possible, given that all of their shots will not be perfection all of the time?

It mite be possible in a sealed vacuum chamber using a robot to wield the cue.
