A pool table has 6 pockets
No, if a pool table is not configured as a 6 pocket pool table it is not a pool table today.
6 Pockets on a Pool Table
It was not a pool table if it only had 4 pockets if it was made since about 1800. A 4 pocket table is most likely a bumper pool table.
It is not a pool table if it only has 4 pockets. If the table is from the 1700's, it could be an antique pocket billiards table.
Yes- so that is why I bought an English table

Pocket billiards ("pool") tables have pockets. Carom billiards tables do not. Apparently the table in the video is a carom billiards table. Whether this was a specific choice or whether it just happened to be handy I don't know.
There are no holes in a pool table once it is fully put together, but thare are pockets created by the play surface and the rails. The pocket sizes are the same size on all pool tables, with all corner pockets being 5 inch and side pockets being 5 1/2 inch. The pockets are allowed to be larger or smaller by 1/8 inch.
