to me if you make a ball and scratch then the normal rules should appyThere are no other options regardless of what else happens on the break shot.
This ^^^ is the weirdest part in my opinion. The rest of it seems fine. The solution for jumping balls off the table seems logical. I don't like taking that strategy away, but I guess there are reasons for it.
I've always preferred base of ball, and counting a ball on the break.
I like the no jump off table, I wont be allowing it on my home table that's for sure! I think the no negative score is great for tourney play, maybe not so much on action matches.These are the rules from Derby. It's spreading, especially the jump the ball off the table and the "no negative scores".
