    League players! Good Shot or Bad?

    The direction of the yellow line may be closer to that of the tangent line, but the tangent line itself, by definition, extends from the point of contact between the cue ball and the object ball, where the white line begins. The fact that cue ball moves significantly forward of the actual...

    League players! Good Shot or Bad?

    Foul. The cue ball moved a full half ball forward of the tangent line after contacting the object ball before the backspin took hold. Again though, many league players are not going to recognize that.

    League players! Good Shot or Bad?

    Only if there’s not a ref. I don’t know of any capable ref that wouldn’t call that a foul.

    League players! Good Shot or Bad?

    Eight ball pocketed on carom

    Absent some weird local rule, the only requirement is to call the right ball in the right pocket.

    Stolen cue

    How long ago are we talking about? I don’t know that I would consider this cue “stolen”. the family is simply trying to deal with a difficult situation and part of that is settling the estate. It sounds to me as if your recourse would be to simply enter a claim against the estate for the...
