    The easiest way to play this, is to face Michelle or Kate. They're terrible players. Facing Packie, Roman and Jacob will be next to impossible for a new player.

    The rules of pool are simple enough
    The object of the game, is to sink all of your balls, followed the 8 ball, First. If you sink a striped ball first, you must only sink striped balls, and vice versa for solid colors.

    You will foul if,
    You hit an opposite coloured ball, first
    You sink the cueball
    You don't hit anything

    You will loose the game if
    Your opponent sinks all of there balls + the 8 ball
    You sink the 8 ball before it is time
    You sink the 8 ball, followed by the cue ball.

    Rice Reap3rThey are the girlfriends available early in the game, I think theyre added automatically after the mission to aquire them. Its been a long time since Ive played. I remember kate being Packies sister.

    either you get this by luck or you spend a bit of time learning how to play on a x box 360 controller personally i got it by roman potting the 8ball in too early but if you do lose just keep trying until you get it

    ThrillaGnatI recommend playing Little Jacob. He was pretty bad when I played him.

    Invite a friend to play pool. Take him to the place and just play. This achievement is pretty easy seeing that you have unlimited tries to get it. It's easier to win on the turns where you break.
