    Pool Rule help please

    If the black is potted on break does that count as a win?

    Because i was playing pool in the common room today, broke and potted the black.

    Win or Lose? There we some disputes about this today. haha

    Its a win, well done

    Used to be in my old pub! but different areas different rule, but i would say yes, but it spoils the game though!

    Lose..

    I thought it was lose....potted the black before it was meant to be potted :?

    its a lose if another ball was potted BUT if was only ball potted its a win

    I always thought it was a definate lose....

    Well thats what i thought but then black off break is like near impossible to do unless you get some mad spin which makes it pretty cool, i was thinking it should be a win (obviously)

    That's what I'd have said too. But I don't get out much.

    However, if you're playing 9 ball and pot the 9 off the break (assuming you hit the 1 first) then that's definitely a win.

    Yeah thats the same throughout the game though in 9-ball but 8-balls different - cant pot the black until the end.?

    win win win

    when i was a lad it was classed as a win, but as stated previous different areas different rules, i believe this rule comes from american 9 ball game where you can win the game by potting the 8 ball with a canon shot. rules should be stated before the match started, but personally i would class it as a win, well done

    Bet you couldn't do it again though!

    was a win then and no mean feat well done:thumbsup:

    It's a loss. You don't pot the black until after you've potted all of your spots/stripes.

    And this is how fights in pubs start...................

    i lol'd :w00t: repped.

    according to the official rules:

    "
    [LIST=1]
    [*]If the Eight-Ball is potted on any break, the balls are re-racked and the same player will break again. When the Eight-Ball is potted on the break, all other aspects of the shot are ignored. (Except if a Serious Foul or breech of the "Spirit of the Game occurs)"[/LIST]

    Lose i think

    Thank you, that sounds about good.

    The decision is neutral balls get re-racked and then the same person breaks again. :thumbsup:

    I hope you make whoever potted it pay. :thumbsup:
