Ok, I haven't played any 14-1 for like a couple of yrs but as I remember right if you touch another ball while in the process of shooting with your cue and it doesn't effect the shot your shooting but just nudge it. I was always under the impression that your minus one point for the foul but you still can shoot without giving up your inning.
I looked in Phil's straight pool book and another and couldn't find it.

Hey Chris, I can't think of any games where you can foul yet continue shooting /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
unless it's your third foul and you have to re-break

Depends CC...if your playing table or all ball fouls or cue ball fouls only. The old 14.1 guys would tuck their ties in so thay would graze the balls, which was a foul. As long as the object ball does not impied the path of the cue ball...the opponent has the option to put it back or leave it stand. If you move it without consultaion with your opponent, its a foul.
Voodoo~~~will play 14.1 with CC if he wears a coat, tie and straight jacket!!

Haven't played in a while either, but I recall tournament rules on object ball fouls were loss of turn and minus a point. Plus, if a ball was pocketed on a fouled shot, I seem to recall it was spotted back up as well.
In our local games, we didn't play object ball fouls at all.
So that's why they wore Tux's eh... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I guess I'm off base here. It's been awhile like I said. When I played it was all about running and if a guy tapped a ball it wasn't a big deal but some would stress a point be taken so, I go with the flow. LOL
Thank you all so much and I guess you would give up the inning for a foul no matter what.

Chris without a ref it was foul on cueball only.I don't how you could play any other way. Even with Refs the calls are suspect. Game in point Luther Lassiter vs Jack Colavita in a Worlds Tourney game Luther plays a bad safe and the ref calls it a good safe, now instead of being on a scratch he is good but the audience yelled so loud that he scratched and Luther agreed that he fouled. Now the game went to Colavita and the ref had bet on Lassiter.####
