    hmmm very very good question. i don't think so anymore. but there's something called 'push out' if i remember correctly, but not exactly sure how it's played. lets wait for some pros to come in.

    push out is call in 9 balls after the opening shot when there is a ball pocketed and he does not have a shot...

    those are called "house rules" and frankly they are the ones that count ... If the 2 players agree on the "house rules" everything else is out the window ....

    actually a pushout can be called immediately after the break whether there is a ball pocketed or not.

    another rule is that after the cue hits a ball, at least one ball must hit any side rail if no ball is pocketed. otherwise its ball-in hand. i notice a lot of local players do not know this rule.

    well, technically you can commit an intentional foul. but if your idea of 'sweeping' is what i think it is, then its considered as not being a gentleman.

    normally players will commit intentional foul by making their opponent's shots more difficult (ie.tactical foul) such as moving the 8 or 9 ball to block an angle for the shot sequence.

    do note though that committing 3 straight fouls will lose you the rack.... at least in the world championships.
