Illegally pocketed balls remain pocketed and are scored in favor of the shooter controlling that specific group of balls, solids or stripes. If any object ball is jumped off the table, it is a foul and loss of turn, unless it is the 8-ball, which is a loss of game. Any jumped object balls are not re-spotted.
Can you jump balls in APA?
There is no 3 foul rule which makes sense given the way the game is scored. Jump shots are allowed but not with jump cues. Any shot where your intent is to not pocket a ball should be marked as a defensive shot. This includes if you pick the cue ball up and hand it your opponent giving them ball in hand.
