These speed pool rules are very close to the general speed pool rules found in the main rules section, but are specific to the VNEA World Speed Pool Tournament.

  2. As soon as the player strikes the cue ball the clock starts.
  3. The player is to pocket all balls, ensuring that the eight ball is the last ball to be pocketed.
  4. The cue ball must come to a stop between shots. Any other ball may be in motion as long as the cue ball has stopped completely.

The following items constitute penalties. The consequences are listed after each item.

  1. Scratching on the break shot. (5 second penalty added to time) In this case, time continues with the head ball behind the headstring.
  2. Scratch during the game (10 second penalty)
