    As long as you hit the 8 ball first with the cue ball and call the 8 making a carom off of the opponents ball.

    Tournament Rules: If a legal ball is struck first, AND the called ball drops and stays in the called pocket, what happens between the legal point of first contact and the end of the shot does not mater. In 8-ball, the 8-ball must be the only legal ball to strike first.

    Bar rules: (No Slop) The 8-ball must get into the pocket without hitting another ball. Bar Rules: (Casual) The 8-ball must be struck first and get into the pocket.
