    To play No-Slop means that you have to call every detail of every shot. If your shot differs from the way you called it, you lose your inning.

    "no slop" is a shortened slang billiard term referring to sloppy play. It forces players to call every shot precisely. It does not allow for fluke plays. Slop, or "no slop" refers to a billiard game where rules have been adjusted (loosened) to allow fluke or luck shots that would not normally be allowed or where no foul rules apply.

    The rules are always "no slop" at the places where I play unless you are playing in an APA league. Playing slop drives me crazy, so I don't do the league.

    "No slop" is something which everybody does not like and it is like speaking the truth and doing the same thing without any deviation. I do agree that it for the amateurs who feel lost using this technique and there are legends who are really fond of these ones.

    " no slop" means that every shot must be called. it is also known as "round here rules" as in "we play like that round here". it is generally a rule used by rednecks in redneck bars, by two dollar players who probably won't pay when they lose. remember one thing. you CANNOT legislate luck out of pool. luck is part of the game. remember paul newman in " cool hand luke". "sometimes nothing is a real cool hand". dogassokie

    It's all well and good when it's known up front but I despise it when I told mid-game after making a crucial shot. "You didn't call it off the horn!" GRRRRRRR......
