Come on, have a fight. Don't shoot and scoot.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
In billiards, when two players play, they strike their ball with a cue (long rod with a tip to strike the ball) and pot it after striking it with the opponents ball or pot the common red ball or do not pot but just strike both of them and earn points in each of the activity. A player goes on playing till he earns points continuously and any miss shot then gives chance to the opponent. It is a very interesting game but due to the costly billiard table and other accessories it is usually available in clubs or other entertaining places. So many common people are not having access to this game and that is why it does not arise our curiosity.
The game of billiard is similar to the indoor game of carom which we often play in our house with children. A person who knows the intricacies of game of carom can, if he gets opportunity, learn billiards quickly. As billiards table is much bigger than a carom board, it requires more precision and practice to earn points. In carom there are 4 pockets (holes) on the corners but in billiard there are 6 pockets, 4 in the corners and two at the centre of the length side.
In snooker a common ball is used by all the players to strike other balls. Then there are 21 balls in different colours (15 red, 1 yellow, 1 brown, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 pink and 1 black) and different score points (red =1, yellow = 2, green = 3, brown = 4, blue = 5, pink = 6 and black = 7) are assigned to them. Using the common ball the players strike these balls and pot or pocket them in accordance of the rules of the game and earn points. A player go on playing if he is earning points and only stops when he misses a strike.
I also join members to congratulate Ronnie O'Sullivan of England who has created history by scoring his 1,000th century break.
Knowledge is power.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
There is no similarity between the Carrom game and Billiards. There is one similarity between Carrom board and Snooker game. In both the games the striker/cue ball is used to pocket the coin /ball into the pocket.
The Billiards game at international level is dominated by the Indian players since a long time. Pankaj Advani is the leading Billiards player as of now.
