    I have read all the cut throat pool rules but they are different in some aspects of the game as listed in this site's rules for cut throat.

    We are playing with one guy claiming to know all the rules and he will not show us his rule book.

    This is my problem: He claims you can not shoot a combination using one of your own balls to make one of his or the other player's group's balls. Not even while shooting one of his balls and you happen to nick one of your own but still pocket his ball.

    In such cases, he claims that we lose our shot and return his ball back to the table from the pocket, even though it was clearly not a combination shot.

    What are the rules for combinations shots in cut throat pool?

    @jorona - Your opponent, while he sounds like an asshole, he is correct about cut throat combination shots.

    One version of the rules for cut throat pool (our simplified version) states:

    When shooting, the player must make the cue-ball first contact an opponent's object-ball.

    The Official BCA World Standardized cut throat pool rules state:

    A legal shot requires that the cue ball's first contact be with an opponents' object ball.

    All see the answer to similar question asked by another user: Pocket Your Own Ball but Not Hitting Opponent's Ball First
