About this game...

 

9-Ball is an action-packed game that is quick to play. Each player's goal is to sink the 9-ball. Balls can be sunk in any order, so long as the lowest ball on the table is hit first. If you're good at combination shots, you can end the game in a blink of an eye so keep looking for any chance to pocket that 9-ball!

  9-Ball Billiards Tips and Strategies

Strategy

 

 

 

·          Use combos to clear the table. You're supposed to hit the balls in consecutive order but you do not have to sink the balls in consecutive order. Use a lower-numbered ball to knock a higher-numbered ball in and you'll clear the table, while keeping your turn. Use it to knock in the 9-ball and you win.

 

 

 

·          Remember the game is 9-ball. It doesn't matter if your opponent pockets every ball but one. Whoever pockets the 9-ball wins.

 

 

 

·          If you're stuck with nothing but extremely difficult shots, you could always try to put the cue ball in a position so that your opponent is also left without a shot. Make your opponent do the hard work and your next shot might be easier.

 

 

 

Angles, English & Power

 

 

 

·          Hitting the ball on one side (using English) will cause that ball to bounce in that direction once it hits a ball or wall.

 

 

 

·          Hitting high on the cue ball will cause the cue ball to follow the ball it hits.

 

 

 

·          Hitting low on the cue ball will cause the cue ball to retreat a bit after it hits another ball. Hit low when one of your balls is directly in front of a pocket to ensure that your cue ball does not end up in that pocket.

 

 

 

·          Using English on a shot can be very tricky. Make sure to practice before using it. A direct, clean shot without English is always the best bet for beginners.

 

 

 

·          If you do use English or increase the angle on a shot, you will lose power. Make sure to take that into account and boost the power of your shot if needed.

 

 

 

·          The side pockets are not as forgiving as the corner pockets. If it's a difficult shot, you might want to decrease your power. Add a touch of finesse to help your ball into the pocket.

 

 

 

·          Use the default power setting (100%) for the break. You need to drive at least 4 balls to the rail and if you get the 9-ball in you'll win so you might as well break hard.
