Etiquette, space between tables

Etiquette, space between tables

In a pool room where tables are near each other, is it the responsibility of the shooter to make sure he doesn't hit anyone behind him with the cue while shooting, or is it the responsibility of others to be aware and give the shooter enough space to avoid hitting someone accidentally?

    Each and every person should be responsible for their own actions.

    Each and every person should be responsible for their own actions, but courtisy implies that if one is already standing on line with a shot (not down on it, but in line with a shot) the other party should avoid encroachment on his area. That is, if you are moving around a table to look at a potential shot, and a shooter on another table is standing looking at a shot, you should avoid him. He has staked out his territory. This actually requires the player at the other table to look at the ball position of the other table before running into the other player.

    But, simply think of it this way: You are prepairing to get down on a difficult shot and are heavily concentrating on that shot. Would you like someone to try ans squeeze by just before getting down on the shot? I, personally, and vehimately, think not.

    Being responsible for ones own actions would, without any reservations, include being aware of the other players in one's perimeter and extending them the same consideration one would expect to receive. Unfortunately, not all players are mentally endowed with with the courtesy gene.

    The shooter should look and make sure that they have room when they go in for the shot, but after that I'm saying its the observers turn to make sure that they aren't in the shooters way. Common courtesy goes a long way.
