RULE CHANGES
The break rules used at the World 9-Ball Championships will be implemented by CBSA this year:
At least three (3) object balls must either be pocketed or pass the head string as a result of a break in order for it to be legal.
Any combination of the above (i.e. 1 object ball pocketed and 2 object balls passing the head string, or 2 object balls pocketed and 1 object ball passing the head string) is also legal.
Regardless of whether any balls are pocketed if a player fails to earn the required rules, it will be considered an illegal break (this is not the same as a foul break as defined in the WPA Rules)
After an illegal break;
1) Opponent has the option either to accept the table as it is, or hand it back to the player that performed the break.
2) In case the opponent accepts the table as it is, the player will not be allowed to perform a push-out.
3) If the table is handed back to the player that performed the break, the player is allowed to perform a push-out.
4) If 9-ball is pocketed in a legal break, the player wins the game. If in case of an illegal break, 9-ball is re-spotted before play is continued, then opponent has an option.
SANCTION FEES
The sanction fee for each division is:
Open 8-Ball: Open Ranked $325; Amateur Ranked $175
Open / Women 9-Ball: Open Ranked $325; Amateur Ranked $175
Open / Women 10-Ball: Open Ranked $225; Amateur Ranked $175
