Description

Two Players get 15 balls numbered 1 to 15 and divided into two groups. There are solids (numbers from 1 to 7) and stripes (numbers from 9 to 15) plus the black eight ball.
As the game starts, the first player takes the breaking shot on the balls racked in triangular fashion.
An Object of the breaking shot is to choose a group of balls (solids or stripes), If the breaking shot pots a solid ball, the player is assigned the group o solids. If the breaking shot pots a stripes ball. the player is assigned the group of stripes. The ultimate goal of 8 – ball pool is, for each player, to pot all balls from the assigned group of balls (pot all solids or pot all stripes), and then pot the eight ball.
If a player does not pot any of the assigned balls in a shot, the turn passes to the opponent.
If a player pots the eight ball before all the assigned balls or pots the wight ball and simultaneously commits a foul, the player loses the inning.
If a player does not hit a ball with the cue ball, it’s a foul. If a player hits the wight ball first or one of the opponent’s balls first, It’s a foul. If a player pots the cue ball, It’s a foul. For every committed foul, the opponent gets a free shot. If, during a free shot, a player pots no balls, he gets another shot.
A foul during a free shot counts as a regular foul, and the turn passes to the opponent.
If a player pots the cue ball, the opponent gets ball in hand, which means that it can be places at any spot behind the white line.
