How do you play the pool game 15-ball?

Fifteen-ball (15-ball) is a pool game played with all fifteen balls racked in the standard diamond pattern with the 15-ball in the center. Standard 9-ball rules apply.

A fun variation of 15-ball is American Rotation. A Filipino version (called Rotation) has more-complex scoring.

Here’s a fun and challenging 15-ball player-rating drill that can be used to evaluate and monitor your playing level and improvement over time.
