Rules of Eight Ball Pool
Fifteen balls are racked in a triangle and the eight is in the center. Fifteen balls are divided into
two groups: balls lower than eight (SOLIDS) or all those higher than eight (STRIPES). Players will choose
the corresponding group to shoot when the first ball is pocketed. Players should pocket all the balls in the
selected group, then pocket the eight, to win the game. On every shot if a player pockets the eight, he loses the game.
1.You pocket the cue ball or your opponent's balls.
2.When you shoot, the cue ball fails to hit any ball in your group first.
3.When you shoot, you neither pocket a ball nor make any ball hit a cushion.
Note: At least four balls must hit cushions on the first stroke otherwise balls will be re-racked and game will restart.
