Plus I'm tired of the generalizations ( the pros) it sounds as if saturated is a bit bitter towards pro pool players, guess he didn't want to single anyone out so he just made a generalization with ' the pro's don't know the rules'. My advice to saturated fats is pay less attention to the rule book and practice more ball in hand break shots. I know most of the rules in straight pool, I would say to saturated fats that he may know the the rules as well as any amateur - but if he went up against a seasoned pro in competition he would be shaking in his chair or maybe thinking bout how well he knew the rules.
This is an AZB forum and not Twitter, but if there were a "Like" function I'd sure "Like" this reply (and saturated's "guilty as charged")!

If you click on the "scales of justice" icon, you can add to the poster's "reputation" points. The system is not real functional but it is another way to let the poster know you found the post positive.

That happens a lot because you're always flirting with the corner pocket, and I'd say I have to remind them more than half the time what the rule is.

The other big one is that most of the guys I play with don't realize that you don't HAVE to re-rack after an illegal break. I can just take it as is.

Regardless, I'm sort of missing the days when high profile games had actual referees.
I had to settle this first instance in a match the other day in our league. The rule states:
From the WPA site.
4.10 Breaking Foul

A breaking foul is penalized by the loss of two points as mentioned under 4.3 Opening Break Shot, as well as a possible re-break. If both a standard foul and a breaking foul happen on one shot, it is considered a breaking foul.


So driving two balls and the cue ball to a rail and scratching (or committing some other foul) on the same shot is a breaking foul, not a regular foul. Or am I wrong?

It was a legal break because you drove two balls and the cue ball to a rail, so it's just a regular foul. All you need to execute a legal break is 2 balls and the cue ball to a rail. Once that happens, it's no longer a breaking foul....anything after that is just a regular foul.

If only one ball had hit a rail, and combined with a scratch, the rule says that's a breaking foul because a breaking foul takes precedence over the regular foul (the scratch)... So 2 points off and the incoming player decides to take the table or rerack, but it doesn't count towards the 3 fouls.
