This game is also known as Kelly Pool.
The first ten are racked in diamond with the 10 ball placed in the center, the one ball in the front of the diamond, and the two and three balls are placed in the corners. Allow peas one to nine to remain in the bottle, and have each player draws one pea.
Play unfolds similar to 9-ball, in a rotation sequence. Players are to spot any ball that is pocketed illegally. Any ball pocketed is "good" as long the cue ball strikes the lowest numbered ball first.
Pea Pool scoring is based on what is called a "kill." When one player pockets a ball, the player who has that ball must "tell" and pay one unit to the player making the ball. If a player pockets his or her own ball, they win the game and collect two units from each player.
The ten ball is to be always considered "wild." A player wins the game if they, at any time, pocket the ten ball.
