Best Answer

In the game of Eight Ball, when you have pocketed your other balls and are shooting at the eight ball (your last ball), if you accidentally pocket your opponents ball(s) you DO NOT lose the game. However, your opponent's ball(s) remain pocketed and your turn is over.

If the cue ball didn't strike your object ball first (the eight / black ball in this case), then the shot may be considered a foul and your opponent may get "ball in hand" (choice of cue ball position) for his next shot. This depends on the specific rules you play by, though.

If you are on your last colored ball in pool and then you get the white ball in so on your next go you would be trying to hit the black ball would you lose?

In eight-ball, if you pocketed your last colored ball and then got the white ball in (a "Scratch"), in the same shot, then No, you would not lose the game. It would be considered a foul shot, meaning your turn would be over. Also, depending on which rules you go by, your opponent may have "ball in hand" (choice of cue ball placement) for his next shot. However, if you were shooting at the eight (black) ball and scratch (pocket the cue ball), it would be considered a loss.
