Another 8 ball break Q

Another 8 ball break Q

So I used to know this...I think. But I got confused as hell today.. So when a player makes 1 of each on the break, he then shoots, for example, a solid but misses, is it still open? And if the breaking player makes 2 solids and 1 stripe on the break is he then solids?

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    Yes, the table is still open. As to question #2 the breaker still has choice.

    Under BCA rules, the table is always open after the break. Making a ball on the break merely allows the person who broke to have another shot.

    Even if the breaker pots 3 solids, he can shoot at stripes if he thinks he has a better shot at a run-out with the solids.

    Groups are not determined until a legal stroke has contacted a legal ball and potted it in the called pocket.
