3-Ball Pool Break Strategy and Tips – How to Make a Ball and Score Low

Dr. Dave demonstrates many different break strategies for the billiards game of 3-ball that can be used to get good shape after the break and pocket 1, 2, or 3 balls.

3-ball rules: Pocket all 3 balls with as few shots as possible, including the break. You can hit and pocket the balls in any order, and nothing needs to be called. A scratch results in an additional shot penalty, and you get ball-in-hand in the “kitchen.”

  • That's not how they set it up at my local hall when they do the competitions. They do it in a straight line.

  • It’s a nice video, but the reality is if you are gambling and there are a lot of players a score of four is going to cost you money. Everyone is slamming the balls trying to make a ball. I’ve played 3 ball games with 15-20 people and a score of 3 got tied repeatedly and ultimately lost to a score of 2

  • First time I ever played 3 ball, I tried the double rail bank on the 3, which worked, and I made the 2 in the top corner. I was on a streak that night (ended up going 32 games to 0), and when the gal heard I had never played 3 ball she thought she had the upper hand. I made both of those balls, hit the one easy, and said, "Two. Is that good?"

  • If I'm playing with a group that has a hard time getting 4 come into the rack from behind lightly using the bottom rail first. Try to move the balls less than a foot and a good position player can usually get 4 no problem.

  • i sugest you to search a brazilian pool game called ''Bolinho'' thats played with tree balls like that, but the table has much smaller pockets, so its a different game. search 'baianinho da maua bolinho'. we also play a variation of 8 ball called 'par ou impar' with a very interesting spin on the rules! , give it a look, because none did and its very popular here, cheers

  • What tip are you using? Sounds like a Hard tip.

  • I used to play this game and would break by hitting the end rail first back into the corner ball which would send the head ball two rails into the side pocket and leave me to two hangers…it's a play on a similar shot to call the head ball in the side pocket when playing straight pool

  • The adding chalk part to make the bank work shows the amount of knowledge you have about pool… Great work, always fun to watch for an amateur player.
