Rules of 9-ball billiard match you should know (Part 2)

Progress of the match

After a valid play, the player is entitled to play a safe shot (Push out).

If the player makes a valid start and has one or more target balls into the hole then he will continue to play until he misses, fails or wins the game. The game ends when 9 balls are pocketed in a valid stroke.

Mark safe

A player who plays after a valid opening can play a safe shot with the purpose of bringing the cue ball to a better position for the following balls.

In a safe shot, the cue ball does not necessarily have to hit the target ball or the ice touches, but the offending rules still apply.

The player must declare before deciding that he has made a safe decision, otherwise the stroke is considered a normal stroke.

Target balls that are pocketed in a safe shot will not count and will not be returned except ball 9.

After the safety of the previous player, the next player may start his turn with the position of the cue ball left by the previous player or may request the player who has just played it safely.

A safe shot is not considered illegal. After an invalid starting stroke, the next player has the right to start his turn with the cue ball in his hand, whatever position is on the table. After an invalid opening stroke the next player cannot play safely.

The terms in carom billiards you should know (Part 1)

Carom billiards, sometimes referred to as carambole billiards or simply carambole.

Billiard balls are usually played on net-free tables, measuring 1.5 x 3 m (5 x 10 ft), using two balls (one for each player) and one or two target balls. Here are some terms for carom billiards.

The terms in carom billiards

Free game (French: Libre)

This is a simple subject multiplying in Carom subjects. The necessary and sufficient condition to score points in this subject is when the host has hit the other two target balls (of course, it is not illegal to handle the ball, touch the ball, etc.) directly or, how many bands optional. In addition, later free-games have one more limited area that is only hit 2 points in each corner of the table that we often call the cutting area.

The nurse

Temporarily called that eye bi in general. These are the ideal figures in the Free Game game to make a big series.

Rail-nurse

This is the ideal eye along the ball that people still call briefly Ken/Kent. This technique is called the American series because it was formed and developed from American players like Willie Hoppe, Maurice Daily.

Balk-line

After the players have mastered the free-game (libre) game, they require some changes to the billiard game to be more challenging. One of those changes is adding more constraints on the number of consecutive carom until at least one of the two target balls out of an area in the table. The word balk-line is understood as the marked lines to divide the area. The subject has many different contents, usually in the form of a/b (ab), where a is the width of the divided square by lines, and b is the maximum number of points (carom) allowed to be played before either of the target balls leave the area. Therefore, the bigger it is, the smaller it is.
