    > ...if player fouls he can choose to spot or continue. Can you explain this rule? Do you mean: ...if a player fouls, the incoming player can choose to spot or continue.

    Yes. If an object ball is behind the headstring it must be on the foot spot. Here's an example: I fouled on the 1 ball, l leave a strait shot. It's your choice to continue or put the one ball on the foot spot. When you foul, the cue ball must not pass headstring. And, when you spot a ball, you still shoot.

    Are you, or is anyone familiar with the Mexican version of this "Chicago" based game? It uses only 13 of 15 balls. Both of the lowest numbered balls are left out. There are no balls to cue up in the triangle. Most other rules remain the same, although there is a penalty counting positive or negative as needed, thus the 61 count is null.

    I know the Chicago version of rotation pool rules, but Sorry, I am not familiar with "Mexican based" Rotation Pool rules. I will do some research first.
