It is a type of cue sport in which a player strikes the cue ball (the white ball) to pot the remaining colored balls in the correct sequence into the four pockets located at the corners of a rectangular table covered with a green cloth. A player accumulates points for each pot and the winner is the player who has accumulated the most points.
