14.1 Question About the 15th Ball

14.1 Question About the 15th Ball

Actually I have two questions:

  1. If I hit the 15th ball in and don't carom the cue ball into the rack, is this a foul? In the rules it says I am not compelled to hit the 15 ball in, so I assume I could also hit the rack, but then I have a pretty crappy chance of continuing. I guess my question is can I make a legal shot by just hitting the 15 ball into a rail and letting my opponent take the shot?
  2. Is a legal safety mean I have to sink a ball too? Or can I just hit a ball to hit a rail? If this is so, then what is the advantage of calling the safety? Couldn't I just hit a ball and hit the rail on a normal shot?

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    1. Yes, this is perfectly legal.
    2. For 14.1 continuous play, you can simply hit a ball in to a rail.
