 Billiards, a classic cue sport, has entranced enthusiasts for centuries Played on a rectangular table covered in green cloth, the game requires precision and strategy
With variants like 8-ball, 9-ball, and snooker, each has its own unique rules and objectives
Players skillfully use a cue stick to strike balls into pockets or achieve specific point totals
Whether it's the casual game at a local pub or high-stakes tournaments, billiards fosters camaraderie and competition
It's a sport that demands both mental acuity and finesse, making it a timeless pastime loved by people of all ages around the world

Pooking is one of the most popular and widely played billiards games

 Here are the basic rules for this game
Objective: The primary goal of Pooking is to be the first player or team to legally pocket all of their designated balls (stripes or solids) and then pocket the 8-ball to win the game

The game is typically played with two players or two teams
There are 15 colored balls on the table, numbered 1 to 15, as well as the white cue ball
One player/team is assigned the stripes (balls numbered 9 to 15), and the other is assigned the "solids" (balls numbered 1 to 7)
The 8-ball is the last ball to be pocketed and serves as the game-winning ball

Players take turns trying to pocket their designated balls stripes or solids
You must legally pocket one of your designated balls on each shot
If a player pockets one of their balls, they continue shooting. If a player pockets an opponent's ball, it's considered a foul
The game continues until a player legally pockets all their designated balls and successfully pockets the 8-ball on the same shot
If a player pockets the 8-ball prematurely (before all their balls are potted), they lose the game. If the cue ball is pocketed while potting the 8-ball, that's also a loss
After potting your designated balls, you can legally pocket the 8-ball in any pocket to win the game

Common fouls in 8-ball include
Not hitting one of your designated balls first
Potting the cue ball
Potting the 8-ball prematurely
Failing to have at least one ball touch a cushion after a shot

When a foul occurs, the opponent gets "cue ball in hand," meaning they can place the cue ball anywhere on the table for their next shot
