Rules to play 15 Ball Pool
Pool, also more formally known as pocket billiards is the family of cue sports.
Pool, also more formally known as pocket billiards is the family of cue sports and games played on a pool table having six receptacles called pockets along the rails, into which balls are deposited as the main goal of play.
There are different billiards games that use the 15-ball set. Eight-ball is probably the standard. Fifteen-ball is a game where shooters play for points and scratches make for a dramatic turn of the tables. The game is also sometimes called 61-pool for the number of points that determines the winner.
This is a variation on that game in which special rules apply to the 1-ball and the 15-ball. The 1-ball and the 15-ball are termed "special balls" in this game.
