Winner of the Break

Player to break in first match is chosen randomly, then the player to break is chosen in a turn based manner.

Racking the Balls

The 15 balls are racked in a triangle shape with the foremost ball being any ball except the eight. The order of the balls should be random with the exception of the eight ball which is placed in the middle of the third row, and the two back corner balls which are a stripe and a solid respectively.

The Break

ANY break is considered legal as long as the object balls are touched. If none of the object balls are touched, the opponent has ball in hand and then can break from any position on the table.

  • 8-ball in on break - If the 8 ball is pocketed on the break shot it is NOT a win of game. The 8 ball is automatically reset to it's original position. If the 8 ball is pocketed on the break and the cue ball scratches the opponent has ball in hand.

  • Open table after break - Regardless of how many solids or striped balls are made on the break, the table is open after the break. In an open table situation, any ball but the 8 ball can be hit first in any combination shot. Once solids or stripes are determined for a player, only their respective balls (solids or stripes) can be struck first in a combination shot. The 8 ball can be used in any combination shot, just not struck first.

  • Foul on break - If a player Fouls on the break, the opponent has ball in hand.

  • Break Box - The cue ball can be placed anywhere behind the D-line.

Legal Shot

A legal shot after the break occurs when:

  • The shooter's cue ball touches any numbered ball on the table, on an open table, with the exception of the eight ball, and drives either it or any other ball after contact, or the cue ball to a rail.

  • The shooter's cue ball touches a numbered ball that corresponds with the shooters ball group (solids or stripes), once determined, before hitting any other ball, and driving any ball or the cue ball to a rail thereafter, or pocketing any ball except the eight ball (unless player is on the eight ball).

  • If an object ball is frozen to a rail and is the intended ball on which to make a legal hit, the cue ball must either strike a rail after making contact with the frozen ball, or the frozen ball must contact a different rail.

  • All ball fouls- if a player touches any ball in any way other than a legal stroke.
