If you have ball in hand can you use the cue ball to see if there is enough room for a ball to pass between the rail and a ball?
You can't use anything to measure aside from a cue stick that you keep a hold of in your hands (say for lining up an angle), and I don't know if you can use it to measure space on the table, although if you can point the cue stick at areas to line up angles, using it to estimate distance, as long as you don't actually try to stick the cue in the space, should be OK.
I've seen people do this sneakily by acting like they want to place the cueball in the spot if there is a ball near there they can shoot at.
One of my pet peeves is people that play over a C- level but don't know rules like this. Or don't know what a push shot is, or that you can't have a "practice lag", etc...
thanks for the replies and I agree with what you're all saying.
What if between the ball and rail is where you want to put the cue ball, ball in hand means you can put the cue ball anywhere? Ops then i changed my mind i want to place it somewhere else?
Foul and if I was overseeing the match I would call it if you didn't shoot from there
