BALLS USED

15 regular balls

RACK

The eight ball must be in the middle as in the eight ball game. All other ball are at random.

Speed Pool

RULES OF THE GAME

The cue ball must not be in motion when shooting

Object balls can still be in motion when shooting

Ball and pocket must be called, (No lucking the balls in)

Legal shots must be made, or a 10 second penalty will be incurred.

A legal shot involves the cue ball contacting an object ball, and driving it to the rail, or the cue ball hitting a rail after contact, or pocketing an object ball

Any ball may be pocketed, but the 8-ball must be last.

STRATEGY

Observing professionals, one can see them running madly around the table to place their next shot. Unlike most billiard games, the cue ball is mostly used with a stop-shot to minimize the waiting time. Bank shots are legal, but time-consuming, and thus rare. A legal shot to just nudge the object ball for position on an easy shot is preferred.
