View Full Version : Opinions please (5 second rule)

11-12-2004, 10:07 AM
Last night my friends were playing ten ball. The one ball was deep in the corner pocket. He thought for a minute then in midstroke the one ball fell. The cue ball bounced off the point moving numerous balls. I know you spot a ball if it falls after 5 seconds, but what about this case? They agreed to rack again, but were wondering what a referee would call. Thanks. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Well if you can't reposition balls to suite everyone, that's all you can do is rerack. A ref would do the same unless he knew every balls position.
