Default Holes in foil question

So I went to a party and there was a hookah. Watching the person setting it up I noticed he didnt make a lot of holes. They were using one coal and poked holes only in the center of the foil and placed the coal there. Is this a good idea?

Hole patterns and coal placement is all about preference... most of the people I smoke with will put multiple holes because they want to move the coal around to distribute heat and keep the shisha from burning.

Hard to say..did you smoke from it? if it smoked good then yes...if it smoked bad then no...
depending on the bowl,coals,tobacco..less big holes are better...or more small holes are better...

The foil pattern an coal placement are all part of heat management so every person has a different preference. Depending on which bowl and tobacco you're using, certain patterns work better than others. I use the hole pattern you described when I use my Crown classic bowl but I place the 2-3 coals on the outer rim. If the person was using a modern/Egyptian bowl then I find that its better to poke holes over the entire bowl and rest the coals on the edge of the bowl. Like TwoApples said, if it smokes well and isn't harsh then its good to go.
