The origin of the word ‘snooker’ is interesting: towards the end of the 19th century many British army officers were stationed in India and improvised versions of traditional billiard games were a very popular pastime. During one of these games Colonel Sir Neville Chamberlain noticed his opponent failed to pot a ball upon which he blurted ‘Snooker!’, which was an informal army word for officer in training, or a person lacking experience. Nowadays the term ‘a snooker’ refers to a point in the game when it is nearly impossible to hit the object ball directly. The game featuring 15 red balls and six coloured balls which have to be potted in a specific order is still immensely popular judging by massive sponsorship and snooker ticket sales.
