So are these rules different than the rules that appear on the WPBA site? Or are BCA, World Standardized and WPBA rules identical? This is all very confusing.

Thanks,
Jim
The BCA is both the US governing body for pool and the North American governing body for pool. As the latter, it is a member of the WPA (not WPBA). The WPA belongs to the WCBS which is the world governing body for all cue sports. The WCBS is recognized by the IOC.

The WPA controls the World Standardized Rules for pool, which the BCA publishes in its Rules and Records booklet. The WSR are on the WPA website.

The BCAPL/CSI originally used the WSR since that's what the BCA leagues were using at the time of the divestiture. CSI rules gradually migrated away with several substantive rule changes such as for a foul on the break at eight ball.

So far as I know, the only league system in the US that uses the WSR is the ACS.
