Pool also known as pocket billiards is a game popular in much of the world.
8-ball championship is the subject of both professional and amateur competition.
Played on a pool table with six pockets, the game is so universally known in some countries that beginners are often unaware of other pool games and believe the word “pool” itself refers to the eight-ball.
8-ball championship has numerous variations including Alabama eight-ball, crazy eight, last pocket, misery, Missouri, 1 and 15 in the sides, rotation eight ball, soft eight, and others.
Standard eight-ball is the second most competitive professional pool game, after nine-ball and for the last several decades ahead of straight pool.
Eight-ball is played with sixteen balls: a cue ball, and fifteen object balls consisting of seven striped balls, seven solid-colored balls and the black 8 ball.
After the balls are scattered with a break shot, the players are assigned either the group of solid balls or the stripes once a ball from a particular group is legally pocketed. The ultimate object of the game is to legally pocket the eight ball in a called pocket, which can only be done after all of the balls from a player’s assigned group have been cleared from the table.
8 ball is played with 15 balls and a cue ball. The goal of each player is to pocket their set of ball either solid or stripes and then to pocket the 8 ball. The first player to pocket the 8 ball wins the game. A player’s turn is over when they fail to pocket one of their shots or if they scratch.
A player immediately loses the game for pocketing the 8 ball when they are not shooting at the 8 ball and scratching the cue ball while shooting at the 8 ball.
