Coming off of 7 is just so strongly in favor of your opponent. The one hole is just worth so much we all know that intuatively, because you are in a spot and you do not have to play position on...

I think the possibility of making a ball on shots like this favors you more than leaving a couple of balls tied up.

I agree we do not really want to move for our opponents, but more importantly...

Another thing to think about here is what if the seated player essentially did the same thing, and grabbed the cb as it was on its way to hit the rack. Would this not be loss of game? Or how would...

Another note on this topic that has always fascinated me, we tend to have this innate need for a game of pool to start "properly".

That should be straight up loss of game. What we actually do is another matter.

Striking cueball, then intentionally guiding the cb after it has been struck. Loss of game 100%.
