Who uses BCA 9 ball rules and who uses Texas Express 9 ball rules? Which one is most generally used? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I use both. Mainly because I have printed copies handy to use as reference.

When you run tournaments, you should always have a copy of the rules you are going to use.

It eliminates a lot of heated discussions.

Around here we play Texas Express rules, the only thing we don't use is the 3 foul rule.

I think that most people aren't aware of the differences between the two sets of rules. I've heard one referred to when clearly the other was meant.

Ron Shepard made up a list of the differences (as of a few years ago) which should be easily found through google usenet groups. I think he also had the differences for VNEA rules.

Thanks for all the replies. I think most of the tournaments in this area uses Texas Express rules. There was a debate about which set of rules should be used. Locally, most of the players are most familiar with Texas Express rules. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I do cue repairs, hence the nickname stickman. I plan to make cues someday when I acquire the equipment. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
