Play 8-Ball pool against a friend or against the computer: Doyu 8-Ball is a slick and easy-to-play pool game for virtual billiard enthusiasts, and anyone who enjoys online table sports games requiring good judgement and skill.
Reasons to play this classic American 8-ball pool simulation game: Many virtual pool and snooker games have a clunky, difficult mouse control cue mechanism for shooting – but not Doyu 8-Ball! This is a very smooth and easy-to-play mouse clicking activity which allows good hand-eye coordination, observation and prediction skills, and use of savvy cue spin to come to the fore.

Strategy to win: The key here is good strategy and deft / steady mouse control. Just like 8-ball pool in real life, you must use canny attacking and defensive strategies to defeat your opponent.
