I hope the ref made the right call. I see double hits like this happen all the time in league and rarely call a foul on my opponent. I hope they are honest enough to call it on themselves and usually the better players do. If this happens in a tourney, I'm calling foul immediately. Hopefully though, I was smart enough to get a ref so he can call the shot instead of me.
Think about this though. Did the cue ball hit the object ball while on the table, or did it hit while in the air? Have you ever seen a break shot where the cue ball starts to leave the table before hitting the rack, and after hitting, flies forward off the table?

Isn't this the same stance and stroke as a jump shot? That causes the cue ball to go off the table. The cue ball would then hit the object ball somewhere above the usual contact point, and cause it to continue up and forward, not stopping forward momentum.

There could have been a bad hit, but for the reasons I have stated now and previously, I would still say there is a chance it was good, and so call would go to the shooter.

ETA: excellent videos. There were a surprising many that I scored wrong, but after reading the explanation I said "of course, duh" I didn't like getting one wrong because the cue ball scratched off camera though.

I just looked at the way I phrased my post and I could see how it was misleading a bit.....Yes, it is possible for the cue ball to go forward without a double hit. I was more so referring to a combination of not only the cue ball going forward but more importantly, the trajectory of the cue ball....I have since read the other posts and Bob Jewitt has a two sentence explanation on the previous page that sums this shot up in it's simplest form. I'm not an expert by any means I should add; but imo this particular shot is a foul.

In regards to my previous post, this is what I was referring to. I'm kind of new with the posting stuff and am not sure how to get a quote from 2 different posts in the same reply.

To do what you are saying is VERY difficult, even with a jump cue. To do what you are saying with a regular shooting cue is damn near impossible. To do what you are saying with a shooting cue AND that slow of a stroke.. impossible. His cue comes down on the ball, imparts backspin, cue ball hits the 8, by this point in time his cue is touching the table, cue ball comes back and hits probably the ferrule, and hops up and to the shooters left. There is no way that the ball would do what it did without a double hit of some sort.

nahog - absolutely you're right. No way that stroke he used was capable of jumping in the way that would be required to do what careyp is saying. That cue ball goes at least a foot forward of the tangent line before coming back.

I generally agree with the post but I think this part is not quite right. If you watch some high speed videos you will see that the time it takes for the cue ball to start moving backwards with draw is very, very long compared to the time the tip is on the ball or to the time the stick takes to move the distance between the close balls. It is the cue stick continuing to come forward that causes the second collision.

Whether it was a jump stroke or not has nothing to do with it. Even jumping into that ball would have resulted in a double-hit. The cue ball stops for just a moment as the tip proceeds through the cue ball to hit it twice. The shot in this video was a foul...easy call. Need to hit at least 45 degrees away when it's this close...I've made good hits on a ball this close just to show it's possible, but you have to jack up 90 degrees and just nip a piece of the cue ball.

The shot in the OP's video is a foul because the angle taken was not fine enough.

BCAPL Rule 1-30.2
It is a foul if your cue tip is still in contact with the cue ball when the cue ball strikes an object ball. However, such a stroke may be considered legal if the object ball is legal and cue ball strikes it at a VERY FINE ANGLE. (from the Applied Rulings section) The term "fine angle" used in Rule 1-30-2 is often referred to in various other ways, including the common terms "thinning", "feathering", "sharp cut" or "barely grazing". However, when attempting to avoid a foul by complying with the provisions of the rule, there is not necessarily a particular angle that will guarantee a legal shot in any given circumstance. Whether a shot of this type is legal is affected by several factors, and the referee's judgment is final.
Cool video. Thanks for sharing. You're right, it looks just like one of the double hits in the video. One point of interest is even at 1000 frames per second it only barely double hits the cue ball. It is impossible to "see" a double hit like that with your eyes. So, realistically, is the only way to determine foul based on the cue ball going forward before it comes back?

It was only a small foul. The rules at Derby City are different from WSR or BCAPL.

So what? Jumping the cue ball is not a foul. Cue ball moving forward after contacting object ball is not a foul either. Listening to the opinions of others does not make it a foul. There is no evidence presented that the shot was a foul.
