Five Nights at Freddy's. My Dolphin Show 8. Madalin Stunt Cars 2. Just a few more seconds before your game starts! There are two main varieties of billiard games: The main carom billiards games are straight rail , balkline and especially three cushion billiards.
All are played on a pocketless table with three balls; two cue balls and one object ball. In all, players shoot a cue ball so that it makes contact with the opponent's cue ball as well as the object ball.
Others of multinational interest are four-ball and five-pins. The most globally popular of the large variety of pocket games are Pool and snooker.
English billiards , with some features of carom billiards, was one of the two most-competitive cue sports, along with balkline, at the turn of the previous century and is still enjoyed today especially in Commonwealth countries.
Russian pyramid and its variants like kaisa are popular in the former Eastern bloc. In straight rail, a player scores a point and may continue shooting each time his cue ball makes contact with both other balls.
Although a difficult and subtle game, some of the best players of straight billiards developed the skill to gather the balls in a corner or along the same rail for the purpose of playing a series of nurse shots to score a seemingly limitless number of points.
The first straight rail professional tournament was held in where Jacob Schaefer, Sr. With the balls repetitively hit and barely moving in endless "nursing", there was little for the fans to watch.
In light of these phenomenal skill developments in straight rail, the game of balkline soon developed to make it impossible for a player to keep the balls gathered in one part of the table for long, greatly limiting the effectiveness of nurse shots.
A balkline not to be confused with baulk line , which pertains to the game of English billiards is a line parallel to one end of a billiards table.
In the games of balkline — A more elegant solution was three-cushion billiards, which requires a player to make contact with the other two balls on the table and contact three rail cushions in the process.
This is difficult enough that even the best players can only manage to average one to two points per turn. This is sometimes described as "hardest to learn" and "require most skill" of all billiards.
Even quite good Pool or Snooker players may attempt an hour or more to score a single three cushion point, without even managing an accidental score.
There are many variations of games played on a standard pool table. Popular pool games include eight-ball , nine-ball , straight pool and one-pocket.
Even within games types e. A few of the more popular examples of pool games are given below. In eight-ball and nine-ball, the object is to sink object balls until one can legally pocket the winning eponymous " money ball ".
Well-known but waning in popularity is straight pool, in which players seek to continue sinking balls, rack after rack if they can, to reach a pre-determined winning score typically Related to nine-ball, another well-known game is rotation , where the lowest-numbered object ball on the table must be struck first, although any object ball may be pocketed i.
Each pocketed ball is worth its number, and the player with the highest score at the end of the rack is the winner.
In both one-pocket and bank pool, the players must sink a set number of balls; respectively, all in a particular pocket , or all by bank shots.
In snooker, players score points by alternately potting red balls and various special " colour balls ". Speed pool is a standard billiards game where the balls must be pocketed in as little time as possible.
Rules vary greatly from tournament to tournament. The International Speed Pool Challenge has been held annually since Dating to approximately , English billiards, called simply billiards  in many former British colonies and in the UK where it originated, was originally called the winning and losing carambole game , folding in the names of three predecessor games, the winning game , the losing game and the carambole game an early form of straight rail , that combined to form it.
English billiards requires two cue balls and a red object ball. The object of the game is to score either a fixed number of points, or score the most points within a set time frame, determined at the start of the game.
Snooker is a pocket billiards game originated by British officers stationed in India during the 19th century, based on earlier pool games such as black pool and life pool.
The name of the game became generalized to also describe one of its prime strategies: In the United Kingdom, snooker is by far the most popular cue sport at the competitive level, and major national pastime along with association football and cricket.
It is played in many Commonwealth countries as well, especially in Asia. Snooker is uncommon in North America, where pool games such as eight-ball and nine-ball dominate, and Latin America and Continental Europe , where carom games dominate.
The first World Snooker Championship was held in , and it has been held annually since then with few exceptions.
Technically a form of pocket billiards, snooker has its own worldwide sporting community separate from that of pool.
These combine aspects of carom and pocket billiards, and are played on tables with pockets often as hazard s not targets.
These are variations using small disks instead of balls, and light-weight cue sticks. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
