10.1 Playing out of turn (Rule K4) 

A player who plays a shot immediately after playing a foul or immediately after the referee has called a foul on that player, has played out of turn. 

In other circumstances, the player should be penalised for K10 'Touching the table when not in control of the frame' before a shot is played. Should the referee miss this call and a shot is played, then K4 will apply [Exception see 11 Breaching the Spirit of the Game]. 

Playing a shot when a 'Timeout' is in force [see 8.1 "Timeout"]. 

10.2 Cigarettes or Beverages (Rule K9) 

For the purposes of this rule the word 'Cigarette' should be considered generic, encompassing Cigars, Cheroots, e-cigarettes and Pipes. 

A cigarette contained in a packet, which protrudes from a (breast) pocket, does not constitute a foul. A cigarette placed behind the ear will constitute a foul if entering the space above the table. 

10.3 Touching the Table (Rule K10) 

If a player touches the table in appreciation or frustration of a good shot and it is obvious the players opponent is about to lose control of the table, i.e. the balls are almost at rest and nothing will be pocketed, a foul should not be called. However, the referee should remind players to stay away from the table until all balls have come to rest. 

10.4 Coaching (Rule K12) 

For any event administered by the EPA, the following 'First and Final Warning' will be given at the commencement of a days play as a block warning to all players and spectators: 

"Good morning/afternoon/evening Ladies and Gentleman, my name is ... and I am the Senior Referee for this event. In accordance with the rules this is the first and final warning for coaching. Any word or action deemed as coaching by a referee will be penalised by a Standard Foul, two visits. This includes using a mobile phone whilst in the arena." 

Coaching of any sort (even coaching that prevented a loss of frame foul being committed) can only be penalised via a standard foul, and then only if the warning has been issued. 

In doubles, talking between partners is allowed from the point balls stop moving at the end of a partner's turn (throughout the opponent's turn), and until the cue ball is struck at the beginning of the other partner's turn. However, only the player whose turn it is, is allowed to touch the table (rule K10). 

10.5 Jump Shot (Rule K22) 

The cue ball leaving the bed of the table and making first contact with the reverse side of an object ball, that it would have struck had it not left the table on an otherwise identical shot, is not a jump shot. 

If the cue ball leaves the bed of the table, jumps over an object ball, hits the cushion, and returns to make first contact with that object ball, then a jump shot has been played.
