It’s always legal to ask questions about any game before a game. It’s legal to ask questions to any player between balls as long as you don’t hold up the game. You can never ask questions about a game with a trapped ball.
Is this correct?
League and special rules aside, is this generally correct? Delay is always up to tournament director discretion obviously. And while you can call a tournament director at any time for a question, obviously repeatedly doing so because you’re obtuse or an asshole can potentially result in a penalty.
Is this at least a generally correct interpretation of the rules?
