The players have to fix the targeted points for each player before the game starts. Usually each player has to reach 20 times his three cushion average.
Which player begins is determined by a cushion draw. (General Carom Rules 2.2)
Each player has to reach the same points in the following categories:
- Three cushion
- One cushion (exactly one)
- Direct point (exactly)
- Libre (like Partie Libre)
- Point with cushion before the first ball is hit
- With the left hand
- From the red ball
- Italien (ball 2 must hit ball 3)
The shot played has to be determined before the stroke.
The player who first reaches his points in all categories wins the game.
