One person has to make 16 balls to win, while the other person has to make 8 balls to win.

Dan,

It means that someone must make 16 balls in his pocket before the other guy gets to 8 balls in One Pocket.

I believe that as balls are made they are spotted until you get to a point where 15 total balls are needed by both opponents.

I don't play One Pocket but this his what I believe happens.

Pretty close, but only the player with the higher count would spot balls. In this case, the player needing sixteen would spot his first 8 balls. At this point they would both need 8. With only fifteen balls on the table, only one person could make their needed amount.

brandon is correct....

all you have to do is spot up anything totaling over 16 balls

so if you give me 20 to 5 thats 25 balls total

25-16= 9

so would have to spot your first 10 balls

EX:
15/8 =7
11/8 = 3
12/7 = 3

You mean 16 balls not 15 balls. A Normal game is 8-8 right. If you gave me 9-7 no one has to spot a ball but if you gave me 9-8 you would have to spot 1 ball.
