This evening during a game of BSD, I found myself in an interesting situation. An unsuccessful nudge to save a ball headed for the left outlane freed a ball in the left mist ‘alcove’. Before my original ball drained, I shot the freed mist ball into the Rats scoop. My original ball proceeded into the trough, but the bonus did not collect, and Rats began – ball proceeds as though there was no drain.
Any thoughts on how this would/should be ruled on in tournament play?
