  1. Cutthroat Pool Game

Cutthroat is a fun pool game for a group of three, or 3 teams of two.  You rack with a standard pool rack using all 15 balls. After the break the first player or team gets a chance to pick five balls (1-5, 5-10 or 10-15) based on what was sunk during the break.  You want to keep your group of balls on the table, and both opponents are trying to sink your balls. You keep going until you scratch or miss a shot.  On a scratch, a ball from each other group gets spotted. If you sink one of your  balls you are helping the other teams win.  The player with the last remaining balls on the table wins.

Whether you are playing cutthroat on your home pool table or out at a bar on a standard pool table, cuttroat is a fun pool game to for a larger group of players.
