How do you play?
- Straight Pool (or 14.1 Continuous) is a game of calling each ball
- in a pocket with no regard to solids/stripes or numerical order.
- Every object ball that is legally pocketed is worth 1 point. The shooter’s inning continues until the player misses or commits a foul. 1 point is subtracted for each foul committed.
- Once 14 object balls are pocketed, those 14 balls are re-racked (head ball will be missing). The shooter then aims to pocket the 15th ball and break the rack to continue pocketing balls.
- Each rack is worth 14 points. The first player to reach the designated point goal for the game wins the game.
