Snooker is a cue sport where players play on a table similar to English Billiards with six pockets at the corner and middle of each long side of the table.
The objective of the game is for players to use their cue stick to strike the white cue ball to hit the other colored ball on the table in predefined order. Players get a point for each successful ball they get into the pockets. They also get a point if their opponent commits a foul. The player who scores the most points wins.
