    Default World 8 Ball Pool Rules

    In World Rules pool,is a player permitted to place the cue ball touching another ball when playing in hand from baulk (for example,following an in-off).
    I can't see a specific rules forbidding this,but Im told it's not allowed.

    Default World 8 Ball Pool Rules

    you are correct that this situation of ball-in-hand placement can not touch another ball is not defined in the rules but several times in the rules it does say that any ball of the table to be respotted without touching any other ball. So by inference the cue ball as ball-in-hand when being placed in baulk also must not touch any other ball.
    hope to hear other's opinions

    Also once a referee at an inter-league said that touching the cue-ball and also touching another ball could be deemed of "body" touching the other ball.
