Rules to play 8 Ball Pool
Fouls that will result
Running out of time you have a short amount of time to take your shot, so dont take too long or play passes to the other player. Your time gets a little shorter with every ball you pot in a game.
Cue ball not hitting your own balls if the white doesnt make contact with one of your own balls before hitting your opponents balls, or it misses altogether, this is a foul.
No ball hitting the rail if neither the object ball nor the cue ball hit the rail around the edge of the table, this is a foul. This is to designed to prevent negative play
