  • Eddie Robin's "Shots, Moves, and Strategies" $180

    I have another copy of Eddie's second book on one pocket. This one has no signatures. It has a few minor small brown stains on the page edges and a couple of bumps. The pages themselves are all clean and unmarked. Shipping will be an additional $10 or $18 if you need it fast.

    Have you finished...

  • Usually you will be playing by "one object ball foul OK" rules which most people refer to as "cue ball fouls only". Since you only disturbed one ball -- and presumably no other ball during the shot passed over the spot it had been sitting -- it is not considered a foul. Normally...

    I think there is no pool game for which the written rules have ever specified the order balls are pocketed on a single shot. Bar-box eight ball is a different matter.

    If you are playing in a tournament, what should the penalty be for catching the cue ball on a miscue?...

    I've played people who will get the thin hit on the spotted ball and now they have five balls on their side and I'm stuck to the far bumper. Or they make the ball.

    How about kicking off the foot rail to the 1 ball with right? Maybe a little swerve is needed. Hard to tell if it's on....

    Yes, the WPA rules don't care why the ball returns to the rail. (They don't actually talk about rail groove.)

    The BCAPL requires the ball to have hit a ball before it returns to the cushion it was frozen to for the rail to count....

    replied to Rules Question
    Years ago I think there was a rule set that made the rail the cue ball was frozen to dead for the cue ball. That rule is gone now. One example of how bad that rule was: A ball is frozen to the point of the side pocket and you shoot it into that point and it goes across the pocket and hits the other...

    Lots of tournaments run with all balls fouls now and no refs. It seems to be working....

    Well, yes, but if it's in a tournament and you have a ref he might decide that rather than punish the ball grabber by forfeiting a game he will just lose the break for that rack. Catching the cue ball on a flubbed break is a beginner's move. In my view it shows a lack of respect for the game and the...
