Pool is a sport in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. Two players can play pool and either player wins. The main goal is to get all the colored cues within the designated colors into the hole, then get the 8-Ball to win. It was going to be in Grand Theft Auto V, but was cut before release.

Pool in GTA San Andreas Edit

Pool-GTASA-strikingthecueballA game of pool in a bar GTA San Andreas.

Starting the game Edit

In GTA San Andreas, CJ can challenge any person at a bar who is holding a pool cue to a game of pool. A wager can be placed, with maximum wager being $1000. CJ then begins to play pool with him.

If CJ wins the game, he wins whatever he'd wagered at the beginning of the game. If he loses or quits, he loses the money he wagered. In any instance, CJ gets a pool cue, which replaces whatever melee weapon he'd had.

It is possible to retrieve the wagered money by killing the challenger.

The player can compete against another player using a second controller, but no money can be wagered.

How to play Edit

CJ breaks. Whoever sinks a ball first gets that pattern, stripes or solids, and the other player gets the opposite.

The turn is lost on the following occasions:

  • A player pockets the wrong type of ball.
  • A player scratches (pockets the white cue ball).
  • A player misses all of the balls.
  • A player hits a ball, but it doesn't hit the rail.
  • A player hits the wrong type of ball first.

If a player scratches, the other player can put the cue ball anywhere on the table before shooting.

Beta Edit

In the beta version of GTA San Andreas the pool tables was originally going to be painted green, not blue, and there was going to be a pool table in Madd Dogg's mansion.

Winning / losing Edit

The game is won under the following conditions:

  • The player pockets all of their striped/colored balls, then pockets the 8-Ball, before their opponent.
  • The opponent accidentally pockets the 8-Ball before they have pocketed all of their striped/coloured balls.
