Except when clearly contradicted by these additional rules, the General Rules of Pocket Billiards apply.
TYPE OF GAME
Bank Pool is a game where legally pocketed balls must be banked
into the pocket (using one or more banks). Any ball on the table can be
selected and the game is call ball-and-pocket.
Two individuals, or two teams.
Object balls numbered 1-15, plus the cue ball.
Standard triangle rack. Balls can be in any order.
OBJECT OF THE GAME
To be the first player, or team, to legally sink eight balls.
The break shot is "free". If anything is made on the break it spots and
the breaker is still at the table. If nothing is made the breaker's
inning is over.
RULES OF PLAY
All shots, except opening break, are call ball-and-pocket. A player
continues with his inning so long as he makes legal shots.
ILLEGALLY POCKETED BALLS
Are spotted. If a foul was committed the player must spot an additional
ball from those he previously sank, or owe the table a ball (to be
spotted immediately after the end of the inning in which he is first
able to pay the table).
JUMPED OBJECT BALLS
Are spotted without penalty.
CUE BALL AFTER JUMP OR SCRATCH
Is put in play from the kitchen. The cue ball coming to rest off of the
table bed is considered a foul.
PENALTIES FOR FOULS
The player must pay the table a ball. In addition to this any balls
sunk on the foul stroke must be spotted.
SUCCESSIVE FOUL PENALTIES
If a player fouls in three successive innings he looses the game.
