    The game is called "14.1 Continuous", and not just "Continuous" because of the way the balls are racked. The name comes from the fact that at the end of an inter-game rack the shooting player breaks with 14 balls racked together, and with 1 ball remaining on the billiard table from the prior rack. Because of this, and because play is continuous as you indicated, the game is named 14.1 Continuous.
