Review for 'BCA Official Rule Book '
This is a handy little book to have. Has all the rules and also has specific rules for the most popular games and some lesser known ones. Sometimes the references can be a little bit confusing as it will refer to another rule without specifying if it is referring to general pocket billiards rules or specific rules for that game. It is also nice to have on hand as there are much less people willing to argue with a hard-copy book vs an internet resource. One guy I play with always insisted on a certain pattern of stripes and solids in the rack; I got the book and it clearly states the rules regarding the rack (a solid in one corner stripe in the other 8-ball in the center and a ball placed at the foot spot. All other balls placed randomly and without intent.) which was amusing for me because he is always so strict on the rules.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
