30 March 2017
- This is a mixed doubles competition – one (1) man & one (1) woman.
- This will be a double-elimination tournament.
- Each company is allowed one (1) mixed doubles team.
- One team will be solids (1-7), one team will be stripes (9-15).
- If the 8-ball is pocketed on the break, the shooter wins. If the 8-ball is pocketed and there is a foul or a scratch, the shooter loses.
- On the break, if the breaker pockets a stripe or solid, the breaker will then be assigned to that particular group of balls, known as the correct balls.
- If the person shooting makes his/her ball, that same team will shoot again but rotate partners. This will continue until a shot is missed.
- If the breaker pockets one or more balls from each group, he/she may choose to be either, by making a ball from one group on the next shot. A combination using a ball from each group is legal at this point, prior to one player being assigned their group.
- COMBINATIONS: Player must strike his ball first to be legal - except in open table situations. Again, the 8-ball is not neutral. Pocketed balls will not be spotted or returned to play.
- BALLS ON FLOOR: 8-ball off the table results in loss of game. Other object balls must be spotted. This is not a foul and the player continues to shoot if one of his balls was pocketed. The floored ball is spotted before another shot is taken.
- ONE FOOT is to remain on the floor at all times.
- WAYS TO LOSE:
- Opponent pockets his numerical group and then legally pockets 8-ball. 8-ball must be pocketed in a called pocket.
- 8-ball is pocketed in a wrong pocket or is knocked to floor.
- Failure to call the pocket into which the 8-ball falls.
- When playing the 8-ball, player scratches the cue ball.
- DECLARING A POCKET: This is only necessary when shooting the 8-ball.
- HOW TO WIN:
- A player has pocketed all his balls and legally pocketed the 8-ball in a called pocket.
- 8-ball is made on the break.
- NOTE: The 8-ball cannot be played at the same time the last ball of your category is made. The 8-ball must be a separate shot.
- All judgments made by the officials will be final. No protesting allowed
