Probably the most common of all games is played with 15 numbered balls and the white one. One player has the full colored balls 1-7 (or also called full), the other has the striped balls 9-15 (or also called halves). The black eight is neutral. The player who was the first to correctly pocket the balls of his color may play on the figure eight. If this is also sunk correctly, the game is won. At the beginning the balls are built into a triangle with the figure eight in the middle. There must be a half and a full at the rear corners of the triangle. At the start, at least four colored balls must run into a band or one ball must be pocketed. If a ball falls, the player may continue to play. However, it has not yet been determined which group (full or half) he can / must play. This is basically done by correctly sinking a announced ball. With eight ball it must always be announced (in organized sport) which ball should be sunk into which hole. With each shot, either a ball must be correctly pocketed, or a ball must run into a gang after the collision. In the event of a foul, the opponent has the ball in hand and can place the whites where he wants. In the event of a foul (e.g. White flies off the table) on the break, the player must play from the head field. With the classic bar rule, there is no announcement. Here the recommendation is everyone sinks their balls and when playing on the eight you should announce the hole, but you can announce this again when you come back to the table, i.e. change the hole. This ensures that the game is fast and that more games are won (most of the time you lose because the figure eight is in front of a hole, so you have no other choice).
