During a 8 Ball Pool game when I potted the black ball it hit the opponents last Coloured ball and it went into a pocket. Who wins the frame?

    Please specify exactly which set of rules you are playing under; without that it is pretty much impossible for us to give a definitive answer.

There are multiple official rule books for 8-Ball. However, I believe that WPA, APA, and VNEA rules all agree on this.

Assuming that the 8-ball pocket was called correctly, and that the 8-Ball was the first ball contacted by the cue ball, and that no other fouls were committed, it doesn't matter that the opponent's ball was struck and pocketed by the 8-ball. The shooter wins the rack.
