This is the fifth and final article in this series on pool rules, which 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. In addition, NV B.62 provides answers and brief explanations for each shot, while
NV B.63 provides a more thorough instruction in each foul category. All calls in the quiz and this
series of articles are based on the internationally-recognized World Standardized Rules
published by the World Pool-Billiards Association (WPA). The complete set of rules can be
viewed online at www.wpa-pool.co . In the first four articles, we've looked at fouls involving not
contacting a rail after the cue ball (CB) hits the object ball (OB), hitting the wrong ball first, and
double-hitting and/or pushing the CB. This month, we look at a few miscellaneous fouls not
covered in previous articles.
