    Whenever you knock out a ball, no matter which one, the point will not count and it's your opponent's turn to play.

    Depending on which ball(s) are off, they will be re-spotted on the predefined spots.

    Also, when one of the balls jumps up on top of the cushion and rolls back on the table again, the point will only count if that ball did not touch the wood around the cushion.
