C. INTERFERENCE WITH PLAY

31. MISPLACED CLIPS AND MISLEADING INFORMATION

  1. GENERAL A player is entitled to a replay if it is discovered before the end of the game that he was misled into adopting a line of play that he would not otherwise have adopted as a result of:
    1. the misplacement of a clip for which he was not originally responsible; or
    2. false information concerning the state of the game supplied by the adversary.
  2. REMEDY
    1. If a player successfully claims a replay, the first stroke that he would not have played but for his misapprehension and all subsequent play are deemed not to have occurred, any points scored for any ball therein are cancelled, the balls are replaced in their lawful positions before that first stroke and, subject to Law 31(c), the player misled then plays, adopting a different line of play.
    2. If that first stroke was also the first stroke of a turn, the player may play either ball of his side that could lawfully have been played in the first stroke of the turn.
  3. EARLIER ERRORS If it is also discovered that the limit of claims of one or more errors had not passed before that first stroke was played, the relevant laws shall be applied as if the error or errors had been discovered at that time.
  4. LINE OF PLAY A line of play is any tactical decision including, but not limited to, electing to play with a particular ball, making a particular leave, deciding how many points to score, quitting the court in the belief that the turn has ended and exercising the option under Law 28(b) (see also Law 37(g) for handicap play).
  5. DUTY OF PLAYERS Both players have a duty to ensure that the clips are correctly placed and, subject to Laws 23(b) and 23(d), must call attention immediately to any misplaced clip.
