Basic Rules

To begin with, snooker is a close relative of billiards as it takes two players to participate in the game. However, the rules are a bit different. The main goal of each player is to knock most of colored balls in the pockets of a table using nothing but a white ball, which is also called a cue ball.

Apart from that, every ball of different colors has a numerical value of its own. So, a player who gains the most points wins the frame. A frame is what the game set consists of. There is no set-for-all number of frames. The number varies from 5 to 35; usually, the championships are the ones to include the most frames.

Every player is supposed to take his or her turn in the frame. If you pot a ball – you get another chance, if not – it is the opponent’s turn then. There is also a set rule that the first ball to get in the pot is supposed to be the red one. After that, the player can chase the color balls. Also, the red balls are the most numerous, there are 15 of them, but they have the lowest point value.
