All about One Pocket Pool
One pocket is one of the smartest, sophisticated pool games. It somehow resembles straight pool , but much more complicated and challenging since only one of the 6 pockets is in use. Actually 2, one pocket for each player.
The object of the game is to score a total of 8 point by legally pocketing the object balls into the specific target pocket. In other words, each time you pocket a ball, you get one point. However, if you pocket an object ball into the target pocket of your opponent, he will get one point, and so on.
As you can see, one pocket rules are not very complicated, but playing it requires a lot of experience with various shooting techniques.
Here you can find the official rules of one pocket and here one pocket glossary.
