In the UK, the center pocket is either one of the two pockets on either side of a pool or snooker table located halfway up the long rails. They have a more shallow cut than the corner pockets because they have a 180 degree aperture, instead of a 90 degree aperture. Center pockets are also commonly called middle pockets. This term is not commonly used in the US where the term side pocket prevails.
