ONE POCKET

TYPE OF GAME

One pocket is played with the general conventions of Standard Rules of Pocket Billiards. A point is made when a player makes any ball into their designated pocket. The winner is the first to score 8 points. Prior to breaking, the player making the break chooses a bottom corner pocket in which he must sink all his balls for that particular game or inning. The opponent must make his balls in the other bottom corner pocket.
PLAYERS

The game is either a two player or a two team game.

BALLS USED

All 15 regular balls are used.

RACK

Balls are placed in a standard triangle rack entirely at random.(see picture below)

OBJECT OF THE GAME

One-pocket is similar to the game of straight pool in that both games allow you score points for pocketing balls, and each legally pocketed ball earns the shooter one point and another shot. The penalties for a foul (illegal shot) is the loss of one point and in the case of a “scratch” the incoming player gets “ball in hand” behind the headstring. Unlike Straight pool (or 14.1) three consecutive fouls is often considered the loss of the game.
