"Rules - Part II: double hits"

resources on the website. If you have a slow or inconvenient Internet connection, you
might want to view the resources from a CD-ROM or DVD. Details can be found online

This is the second article in a series on pool rules. The series features shots from a pool
rules quiz I recently created with fellow BD columnist Bob Jewett. The quiz can be viewed online
in NV B.61. NV B.62 provides answers and brief explanations for each shot. NV B.63 provides
thorough instruction in each foul category. All calls in the quiz and this article series are based on
the internationally-recognized World Standardized Rules published by the World Pool-Billiards
Association (WPA). The complete rules can be viewed online at www.wpa-pool.com. Last
month, I introduced the quiz and supporting resources and looked at examples of kiss-back and
rail-frozen shots. This month, we will look at shots where there is a small gap between the cue
ball (CB) and object ball (OB), and also where the CB is frozen to the OB.
