**** Poker Pool Rules ****
PLAYERS: 2 to 9 players.

BALLS USED
A complete set of billiard balls (1-15) placed randomly in a standard triangle.

CARDS USED
Standard Complete Deck of Cards (52 card deck).

THE GAME
Each player is dealt 5 cards from the card deck. Each card in the players hand is represented by a ball as follows:
ACE 1
2 - 10 2 - 10 respectively
Jack 11
Queen 12
King 13
Free 14 - 15

Players then mutually agree upon a starting order (by default go in order of age). After determining the order of play, one player breaks the rack of balls. If off the break a player pockets a ball that matches a card in his hand, they then must place the card face up on the rail of the table and if their opponents also hold a card that matches the ball potted they also place their card face up.

Providing any balls are sunk, the player continues to shoot placing cards in his/her hand face up until they miss or foul, at which point the next player shoots. A player does not need to call his/her shots and any potted balls allow a player to shoot again. Before a player shoots their final ball they must verbally declare LAST CARD.

The game is over when
- The shooting player is out of cards. (NOTE: even if another player is out of cards first, the shoot player may finish his/her turn and will still be declared the winner if all cards can be laid on the same turn).
- A non shooting player is out of cards and the shooting player has finished his/her turn.

FREE BALLS
Sunken free balls (14-15) allow the shooting player to shoot again. These ball are often played strategically to allow the give the shooter a better shot without the risk of sinking other players' balls

PENALTY FOR FOULS
Fouls are defined by the following actions and require the shooting player to pick up a card (NOTE: if the card picked up is already pocketed, it may be immediately placed down). The next player receives "ball-in-hand" and may place the cue ball anywhere on the table and may shoot in any direction.
- Pocketed white ball
- Shooting and not hitting any balls on the table
- Shooting the ball off the table

SCORING
After completing each round, all losing players are penalized 1 point (or pre-determined dollar value) for each card remaining in their hand. The winning player is rewarded 1 point (or pre-determined dollar value) for each card remaining in the losing players' hands
