noun; in pool, a pocket where the eight ball has been inadvertently set up early in the game. This essentially means that all other object balls must be deflected from this area to prevent either player from pocketing the eight ball too early and losing the game.
Tony cleverly turned the right corner into a dead pocket, preventing John from scoring on the next shot.
