    That rule used to come into play when I was in a seismically active area.

    Yes, i seem to remember an incident with Peter Ebdon within the last ten years.

    Correct, tearing the cloth is not a foul unless done in a malicious/ungentlemanly manner.
    The game would be stopped and the tear fixed (did this happened on a TV game, IIRC Ebdon was one of the players?).
    At our club a massive tear (12") occurred and the game was transferred to the next table as best as possible and match continued, no foul same player.

    one comment was that a ball had been moved by the cloth moving; my view is that rule sec 3.15 "Ball moved by other than striker" and that the affected balls replaced as best as possible.

    Thank you for that.

    BT, as neighbours, well almost, we should stick together!

    What is the effect on play? Is it a foul?
