How to Play 3 Ball Pool

Lets learn how to play Three Ball Pool! For those who don't know, Three Ball is a popular game to play for gambling (legally, of course) so the sooner you master it, the sooner you'll have money for a new pool cue.

As the name implies, Three Ball is played with three balls. The goal of Three Ball is to make all three balls in as few strokes as possible as possible. Making all three balls on a break is incredibly hard to do; even getting one in can be difficult.

Your break shot counts as your first shot shot, so the lowest possible score in Three Ball is a One. A good technique for breaking Three Ball is to hit the head ball and the second ball at the same time, using Low Left English.

As you can see in the video above, I was able to successfully make two balls on my first shot. That's a pretty good break. That counts as one shot. If I make the last ball with my next shot, I'll have a Two, meaning it took me two shots to make all three balls.

A 'Two is usually a winner. When you're playing with multiple players, it's hard to make two balls in on the break. The next player will need to get at least Two, which would be a tie. If they get One (meaning they sink all three balls on the break) then they'd win.

In the event that the player gets a Two, that means it's a tie. In Three Ball, if one player ties, everybody ties. When that happens, everybody puts down a dollar (or whatever the stakes were) and the game continues until somebody wins.
