Online 9-ball pool is played with nine color balls (1 to 9) and the cue ball. On each stroke, a player must hit the cue ball against the lowest numbered ball on the table. Our great TD team will offer you tourneys based on the following popular formats:
Played on rated tables. 9ball on break counts. We had this changed due to player's requests.
Played on unrated tables. The 9Ball must be the last ball on the table before it can be potted. If you sink the 9Ball before it is the last ball, you lose and your opponent will advance. The exception to this rule is when you Scratch and the 9ball comes back on table. The players should continue the game. Please call the TD to the table if verification is needed. Winner needs to be declared at the table by the computer.
Played on rated tables. The 9Ball must be potted early to win the game. If the 9ball is that last ball on the table, call TD to verify then stop the game and restart. There is a 3 games limit; if no winner after 2 games, last game is played Regular.
Played on unrated tables. The 9 ball must be potted in the same pocket the 6 ball goes in. Both players are responsible to verify pocket when the 6 is potted, even on the break. If the 9 ball goes before the 6, or in the wrong pocket after the 6 is made, the player shooting loses and must report loss. Making the 9 ball on the break is a loss and must be reported unless the 6 ball is potted on the same shot AND goes into the same pocket prior to the 9 ball.
We are currently working on trying to add new formats. Stay tuned for updates.
