Killer (pool)


Killer (pool)

Killer is a multi-player folk variant of straight pool in which each player is assigned a set number of "lives" and takes one shot per Cuegloss|Inning|inning to attempt to Cuegloss|Pocket|pocket (Cuegloss|#Pot|pot) a ball, or else lose a life. Usually if the player Cuegloss|Scratch|scratches then an additional life is lost. It is a popular pub game because it can involve a potentially unlimited number of players, and offers the opportunity for each player to bet a small amount of money for a reasonable return in winner-takes-all. There are often other local subrules such as potting the Cuegloss|Black ball|black (Cuegloss|8 ball|8 ball), or any two balls in one shot, gives the player an extra life, or that failure to pocket a ball on the Cuegloss|Break|break shot does not cost a life (in which case the shooter shoots again). The game is sometimes called killer pool.
