Most of the time it means you have the Stripes unless your
playing BCA rules where its always open after the Break.

Chris...not good enough to snap the nine for the win!

Guess the poster is asking about 9-ball...

The 9 on the break is never a loss if you're playing 9-ball. Well, it's not a loss if you're playing 8-ball either! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Every once in awhile, like on TV, if the 9 is pocketed on the break, it must be spotted back up. But it's never a loss.

Why do you ask?

Well in 8 ball in the bars people play 8 on break wins. I was just wondering what the ruling was in 9 ball when you made the 9 on break. if you won or lost or if it was spotted and you kept or lost shot. thats all

That's simple, playing 9 ball you win.

And the only reason they play that way in bars is because the only way to get the 8 back out is to pump more money into the table. In BCA and VNEA it's either spotted or reracked. APA is a win, but it's best not to question the APA's rulings or it'll turn into another 4 page thread here. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

As for 9-ball, never a loss to pocket the 9 on the break. Not even in APA.
