Rules to play 3 Ball Pool
Ball Call Shot
Players can elect, before play begins, to play a called shot and or called pocket version of three ball rules. In the called version of three ball, players call out two ball in this side pocket before taking the stroke. Balls that are pocketed in a manner inconsistent with what was called are spotted, but no foul results. If playing on a coin operated pool table, balls pocketed in a manner inconsistent with the specifics of the call remain pocketed, and a foul is incurred by the shooting player. Players can decide before hand to play call shot, and which version of call shot to be used. For example, players can decide that they must call either the ball, the pocket, or the banks, or a combination of any of those three.
