International 8 Ball Referee

International Eight Ball Pool Rules

6j Shot Clock

Each player is allotted 45 seconds for each shot. The tip of the cue must have made contact with the cue ball within this time or a standard foul shall be granted to the opponent. The 45-second shot clock will commence once all balls come to rest. The timekeeper will verbally count down from 5 seconds.

One extension per frame is permitted per player, whereby the referee will add 15 seconds to the remaining time at the request of the player.

NOTE: The AEBF has adopted the 60 Second Shot Clock, the same as world rules. Call 30 Seconds at 30 seconds remaining, and Time Foul at 00. There is no Extension.
