Pool is a great game that almost anyone can play, the table is usually 6 feet long by three feet wide, and at one end has a d shape similar to snooker and the other is where the pool balls are set up. In the english game there are red and yellow balls, 7 of each and 1 black ball. The object of the game been to pot all of your given or chosen colour and then pot the black to win.
If the black is potted off the break, the breaker wins, if it is potted during the game the person potting it loses, in the event of a foul shot or an in off your opponent has 2 shots , in the case of an in off the first must be taken from within the d.
The most disturbing thing about the game of pool is the differing prices around the country, in wales you can still play for 20p, in leeds 50-70p, in london £1 which i think is totally ridiculous. come on landlords, drop the prices or youll lose customers who want a game.
