Game Rules




In the unlikely event that a game should become stalemated, meaning that neither player can, or wants to, make use of ball-in-hand, the balls are reracked and the player that had the break at the start of the stalemated game breaks again. A game shall be considered a stalemate when both players or teams agree. There is no minimum number of turns that must occur before a game is stalemated.

To score a stalemated game in: 

8-Ball – Put an “X” across the entire game box. The innings and Defensive Shots for the stalemated game do not count.

9-Ball – The game ends but the points earned stand. The innings and Defensive Shots remain and all balls left on the table are marked as dead balls.
