I'm sure this game has a different name, I just don't know it. Allen showed this game to me on Sunday.

The object of the game is to rack all 15 balls in front of the corner pocket and make every ball in that pocket (starting with BIH) in as few shots as humanly possible. If you miss or make a ball in a different pocket, you spot a ball.

This game is great for cue ball control and reading clusters. Allen took 3 tries to get 15 shots (made two balls on the first shot with 1 miss). It took me 6 tries to get 3 misses (hopefully I counted right).

It's pretty addicting. Try it out. If this game has a real name, let me know.

Looks to be good practice for one pocket. :)

Never heard of this game.

I prefer that other pool skills test he used to have.

15 balls, break them up, run the first 10 like straight pool worth 1 point each and the last 5 you run them in rotation worth 2 points each, and you keep score via your results in a 10 rack performance.
