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.
