15 ball


You win the game when… You make the fifteen ball legally

What makes it different from straight pool?... Balls are pocketed in ascending order, game ends when the fifteen is made.


In this players go back and forth beginning the one ball and racing to be the first to sink the fifteen and thereby win the game. Just as in nine ball the fifteen can be sunk before all the other fourteen balls have been made, though this can only be done on a combination shot or with some incredible luck so the game often does go its normal length.
