He definitely knew he fouled. There’s only one reason the GOAT scratches his head and it’s if he knows he made a mistake.

I don't see how any of you can decide you are sure he knew he bumped the ball with his cue.
I don't know that, nobody can know that. The only clue might be if he looked down when he felt it touch. That's the natural reaction you have to see how far you moved a ball. He wasn't in the frame of the camera then...we don't know if he reacted at all to the contact.

Well, 2 inches anyhow. I'm just saying I can't possibly say he knew. Others can think they are positive. That's fine.He moved it about four inches, so of course he knew. If he'd grazed it ever so slightly and moved the ball negligibly (like what happened to Wu vs Filler at the US Open) there would be some room for interpretation, but not here.
Efren 99.99% perfect, but this is one of those few occasions that validates that it's not 100%.
But it's kinda not possible to do it and not know you did it but somehow know that you didn't know you did it...ya know.I've done this many times over the years (ticking a ball with my cue) and every single time I've done it I KNOW I did it.
Just making a general statement here....not taking any sides.
And to be honest here, I've watched this video several times before and never noticed the foul either.
