Chinese eight-ball (sometimes rendered "Chinese" eight-ball, and also known as eight-ball kiss, reversed eight-ball or backwards eight-ball), is an American, two-player pool (pocket billiards) game which combines the play of eight-ball (except by shooting object balls at the cue ball instead of the normal vice versa) with the shooting style of carom billiards games, and is thus a pool–carom hybrid game, like English billiards. It is similar in game mechanics, if not exact rules, to Russian pyramid, but using typical American pool equipment.

  • Chinese eight-ball (sometimes rendered "Chinese" eight-ball, and also known as eight-ball kiss, reversed eight-ball or backwards eight-ball), is an American, two-player pool (pocket billiards) game which combines the play of eight-ball (except by shooting object balls at the cue ball instead of the normal vice versa) with the shooting style of carom billiards games, and is thus a pool–carom hybrid game, like English billiards. It is similar in game mechanics, if not exact rules, to Russian pyramid, but using typical American pool equipment. The game probably takes its name from the fanciful notion that things might be done backwards on the other side of the world (cf. Chinese fire drill, etc.). (en)
