9ball call the 9ball

Post by 9balldotcom » Tue Aug 21, 2012 1:26 pm

Just had a weird one in 9ball.Im using call the final 9ball rule.

Playing Big T at Deep Pockets I was running the rack and got to the final 9ball which i called to the middle pocket.I sank the 9ball.

This is where it gets funny,the game did not call the rack it decided to respot the 9ball and is making me shoot it again.

Coudn't re-create this one so far.
Can you re-create is or did it happen just once and never again?
Are you sure you called the correct pocket?

I assume you mean the call money rule.
Do you remember using any other custom rule options at the time?

Yes i called the right pocket....but surely even if id called the right pocket and shot the wrong pocket( and visa versa) it would at the very least have been a foul and BIH to the ai player>well it didnt do that either.Just re spotted it and i shot it again in the same middle pocket that i nominated again and it then called the rack.


I played 20 racks str8 and it happened once.

Yes i was using the money ball or call the final 9ball rule and no i had not adjusted any other rules or settings.

Unfortunately the Help File doesn't clearly state the rule.
In US 8 ball pocketing the money ball into the wrong pocket is usually loss of game, in 10 ball it get's spotted.
In 9 ball I would expect it rather get spotted than loss of game, but I can see your point.

Weird is indeed that the game made you shoot again, rather than your opponent.
Guess we'll need to watch these situations.

Looks like that's a bug in Call Money. In 10 ball it works as expected.

It should spot the 9-ball and the turn should change.

I played call the money 9 ball against AI I purposely shot the 9 in the wrong Pocket and instead of it re-spotting it and pass turn to the AI it kept making me shoot it over 3 times in a row when I did it. I recorded the rack
