Pool Report

Hi, recently the Pool Committee reviewed one of the rules and agreed to change it.

 

Effectively from Sat 1 May the following rule is in place under “Break – Rule 4”

 

4.    If one of each ball is potted off the break, the first ball potted determines what ball the player is on.

It is not a foul and the player continues his turn with the set established by the first ball that went down.

If the players cannot agree which was the first ball down the frame is re-racked with the same player breaking.

 

Note : this only applies on the break, if one of each is sunk at any other time standard rules apply.

Q             Why was this changed?

A             It was felt that it was unfairly penalising a player for an open break. If they had sunk 2 of one type they would get to carry on, so why penalise them if they sink one of each.

 

Q             Some clubs play open table (choose what you want) when you sink one of each off the break, why don’t we?

A             We felt that allowing someone to choose what they want to play on was giving them too much advantage so they must play the set of balls established by the first one sunk.

 

Q             What if we cannot agree what went down first?

A             It is usually obvious to all watching (and both teams should be watching) what went down first but if it is very close and the players can’t agree the rules allow for a re-rack.

 

Q             After the break if nothing is potted and it is my turn, if I sink one of each do I get to carry on?

A             No. You are on the first ball potted and it is a foul. This is because the break does not consist of trying to pot any specific ball and one of each can be sunk randomly.

However once the balls are broken and you are playing a specific shot you must take care not to sink one of each as a result of your shot.
