    The table is open until one of the players sinks a ball. If he sinks a solid then you got stripes.

    The table remains open until someone makes a legal shot that results in a called ball dropping in the called pocket.

    Well here we are again with the APA, BCA, WPA, TCP and what ever else there is. I think if someone post a question about play they should indicate whose rules they are playing by. It would simplify things.

    BCA goes so far as to say that if "groups have not been established" by the time that one group is completely off the table, that both sides can legally shoot at the 8-ball.
