    @Satiate you’re opponent, or the opposing team gets ball in hand behind the head-line, if you miss the 8 ball but don’t scratch.

    Here’s a question… If my opponent scratches and we are playing using the rule wherein the cue ball must leave the kitchen before returning to hit a ball inside of the kitchen, do I lose the game if I miss the 8 ball in the kitchen, but do not sewer?

    That 2 dot level is called the head-string, fucking cock succer, that deserves to ruin is pool cue.

    @weevo89 It depense on the people, and the game, if it’s played at a pool table that coin operated, and if you scratch, leave the balls in, but don’t get stripes or solids, in tournament play at pool halls, I’m not sure.

    where does the 1 1/2 rule come from for ball in hand? I’ve never heard anything like this.

    your stroke is ugly mike and again the line connecting those two dots which are actually called diamonds is the head string. and neither traditional nor tournament are real sets of rules idiot. there’s bca, apa, texas express, wpa and a few others oh yeah then there’s what we call bar pool which is what you play and has no clear set of rules because it’s played entirely by idiots like you who can’t agree because you’re all lost. read a fuckin’ book asshole
