8-Ball Rule Qeustion - 09-12-2017, 03:01 PM

I'm playing 8-Ball and I have solids, I shoot in the 7-Ball and hit the 4-Ball very very close to the corner pocket on the same shot, it's hanging there. On my next shot I'm shooting the 4-Ball and just as I contact the cue the 4-Ball drops, by the time the cue gets to the pocket there's nothing to stop the cue from going in and it scratches. What happens?

You get shot by the guy you're playing who's had too many beers.

I think you reset the 4-ball and the cueball and shoot the shot again.

Typically in this type of situation the cue ball and object ball will be replaced to their positions prior to the stroke, and the player may shoot again.

I would think that it would be a scratch. If the ball stood there for a good while and then fell as you took the shot then it could be argued that it was your motions while taking the shot that caused it to fall.

And it's a re-do under WPA (world-standardized) rules as well.

  • 1.7 Balls Settling

    A ball may settle slightly after it appears to have stopped, possibly due to slight imperfections in the ball or the table. Unless this causes a ball to fall into a pocket, it is considered a normal hazard of play, and the ball will not be moved back. If a ball falls into a pocket as the result of such settling, it is restored as closely as possible to its original position. If a settling ball falls into a pocket during or just prior to a shot, and this has an effect on the shot, the referee will restore the position and the shot will be replayed. The shooter is not penalized for shooting while a ball is settling. See also 8.3 Ball Pocketed.

The only correct answers are:
1. Don't play anymore 8-ball
2. Don't play anymore in a bar
3. #1 + #2

I'm sorry Skippy. Are you the type who rolls into a pool hall and walks past 20 - 9 foot Diamonds to play on the Valley BB in the back?

Shame. Shame. Shame.
