EPT Rule

15 d. If a player scratches or jumps the cue ball so that it comes to rest off the playing surface of the table while playing the eight ball, it is a loss of game.


Is this loss of game if you dont pocket the 8 ball aswell as when you pocket it?

If, as the question states, the 10-ball is called, then it would be a foul, regardless of whether a rail was hit. So that would be loss of turn and ball in hand to the opponent.

If, however, the shooter called 'safety', then it would only mean loss of turn. ie. no ball in hand - the opponent would have to shoot from where the cueball lay. Again, it is not important that a rail was not hit.

Had the shooter potted both the 10 & the 1-ball, he would continue his visit to the table.

I think.

BS

I would say BS is correct in all counts.

I think you're asking "is it a foul if you scratch on the 8-ball?" Yes it is. Any foul on the 8 is loss of game.

14.0 Losing a Game- A player loses a game by fouling while pocketing the eight ball, jumping the eight off the table (comes to rest off the slate bed surface) at any time, pocketing the eight ball prematurely, pocketing the eight ball in a pocket other than the called pocket. Player also loses game by committing three consecutive fouls.

15.0 Playing the Eight Ball When playing the eight ball: a. The eight ball must always be the first ball contacted by the cue ball, and it or any other ball including the cue ball must contact a rail after the initial hit. Failure to do this is a foul and the opponent is awarded cue ball in hand; it is not a loss of game. b. Combinations, caroms, kisses, are all legal as long as the eight ball is the first ball contacted by the cue ball. c. Pocketing the eight in the wrong pocket is a loss of game. d. If a player scratches or jumps the cue ball so that it comes to rest off the playing surface of the table while playing the eight ball, it is a loss of game.

So me thinks you only lose the game if you foul whilst potting the 8 or if the 8 or Q ball leaves the table or scratch !!?? Not ANY foul on the 8 as the Surg suggest's! Just most fouls!? Hmm

On a combination shot, you need to hit your ball 1st and pot both you and your opponents on the same visit.

Failure to pot your ball is LOSS OF TURN, cue ball in hand.

You must also call the pocket where you want to pot YOUR ball into.

INTERNATIONAL POOL TOUR TO PREMIERE ON OLN

For Immediate Release

King of the Hill 8-Ball Shootout to Air in Prime-Time Starting Sunday, June 4

Chicago, Illinois. (May 4, 2006) --- The International Pool Tour, the richest professional pool tour in the world, has secured a major television package to air IPT’s action-packed “King of the Hill 8-Ball Shootout” series on OLN. The network will carry the six IPT shows in prime time, with the first show set to premiere at 7 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 4.

The International Pool Tour’s “King of the Hill 8-Ball Shootout” features the world’s greatest players competing for more than $1 million in prize money, by far the biggest purse ever offered in pool. The series will be shown on OLN over six consecutive Sundays, culminating in a two-hour finale on Sunday, July 9. Click here for IPT TV schedule.

The Comcast-owned OLN is currently available in almost 70 million households and is considered one of the hottest sports cable networks in America. The national network is best-known for its coverage of the National Hockey League, the prestigious Tour De France, America’s Cup, Davis Cup tennis, the A1 Grand Prix series and the “Survivor” reality series in syndication.

“We believe the IPT’s intense competition, production value and sports drama make it a good fit for our schedule” said Victoria Quoss, OLN’s VP of Programming, International & Strategic Planning. “Millions of people play 8-Ball all over the country and the International Pool Tour will take the sport to a whole new level. The series will not only appeal to pool fans, but to sports fans in general.”

The International Pool Tour series is a breakthrough in televised pool. It is one of the first-ever pool series to air nationally in prime-time and is widely considered to have the most high-end production value in the sport’s history. The “IPT King of the Hill 8-Ball Shootout” was produced by the International Pool Tour in association with A. Smith & Company, the executive producers of network hits such as “the devils playground’s Kitchen,” “Skating with the Stars” and many major television sports events including pro football.

“OLN is known for its coverage of some of the most prestigious and competitive international events in sports,” said Jon Denny, Executive Director of the IPT. “This new partnership signifies that pool is now a major television sport and that the International Pool Tour is a ready for prime time property.”

OLN (OLNTV.com) is the leader in competitive and adrenaline-charged content. Now in more than 69 million homes, OLN is the cable home of the National Hockey League and best-in-class events like The Tour de France, The America’s Cup, Professional Bull Riders (PBR), the Boston Marathon and USSA Skiing. The network offers unique programming in four primary areas: Action Sports, Field Sports, Bulls & Rodeo and Awe-Inspiring Series, and is the exclusive home of “Survivor” in syndication. OLN, a wholly owned company of Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ; CMCSA, CMCSK), is distributed via cable systems and satellite operators throughout the United States.

OK here are two incidents that cropped up in an 8 ball game last night. The first one: a ball was pocketed into the corner pocket but on root to the pocket it accidentally clipped another ball on the rail although this did not stop it from going into the pocket. Is this a foul? The flick was unintentional and such the pocket wasn't called because the shot was meant to be obvious.

The second one: One shot ended up with both the eight and the cueball in the jaws of the corner pocket (the eight being the final ball for the shooter) and he hit the eight which hit the jaw of the pocket came back and double kissed the cueball before going into the pocket. Is this a foul? I presume double kisses aren't considered obvious but im not sure in this instance. Any help clearing these up would be appreciated.

Both no foul I would think as the intended ball went in the intended pocket, as well as being the first ball to be struck by the cue ball.

I'm still learning the rules as well though so may be wrong!

I believe that as long as the called ball goes into the intended pocket its good, its irrelevant how it gets there. If it goes into another pocket other then the nominated one, it would be loss of turn not a foul shot, unless it is the 8 ball in which case it would be loss of rack... :roll:

1. No foul and another visit for the reasons given by Mickey and Goon - because the shot was deemed obvious it was the called shot and the called ball was potted into the called pocket. Note: Even it the shot wasn't called (or deemed called) it would not have been a foul - just loss of turn.

2. This is a little more tricky as it depends how the balls lay and how obvious it was that he was trying to pocket the 8 into that pocket. If it was *absolutely* clear that he was trying to pot it there the shot is good. If it wasn't clear the shot is still good because the opponent did not challenge the player as to what shot he was trying to play. If the opponent is adamant that it was not the intended shot he could call the tournament referee for a decision but it's likely to go in favour of the shooter unless there is a very strong case.
