It was in the officer's mess of the British army's 11th Devonshire regiment stationed in the town of India named Jabalpur (Jubbulpore as it was known in past times) in 1875 the game snooker was created by a foreigner named lieutenant Navelie Francis Fitzgerald Chamberlain. While experimenting with the existing game of the black pool (a form of billiards), which consisted of 15 red coloured balls and one black coloured ball, Chamberlain threw additional coloured balls and a new game took its place. Heard those rookie cadets studying at the royal military academy at a Woolwich were given the slang term "SNOOKERS" Chamberlain observed that all were present and playing this new black pool were 'snooker at the game' and name suited to the situation and on the game and then name stuck into his mind immediately.

In 1885, John Roberts the British Billiards champion visited India and met with Chamberlain. During a dinner with the maharaja of Cooch, Bihar, after enquiring the rules of snooker, Robert decided he would introduce the game back in England. It took many years before the game was already played by everyone or the players over there. By the end of the 19th-century manufacturers of Billiards realised the main potential of the snooker.

And then in the year 1916, the first competition of snooker took place which was the English Amateur Championship, the first important professional event took place in 1927 and was won by Joe Davis, the first snooker superstar. Davis won the first snooker championship which had became later the world's first championship. For 15 consecutive years were instrumental in the growth of the popularity and fame of the game and by the 1930's snooker has been overtaken by the billiards as the most popular cue sport in the United Kingdom. 

After a short search in popularity of the game snooker in the 1950s, snooker was but back on the map by the introduction of pot black in the year 1969 a BBC series showed snooker tournaments in coloured images on the television with the engaged or emergences of the stars named Denis Taylor, Ray Reardon, Steve Davis, and Alex Hurricane Higgin. The final and world snooker championship was soon drawing in a new permanent home at crucible theater in Sheffield. Snooker clubs have been opened all over the countries and this game has been popular as fun games or best passing time sport which is similar to pool game but both are played on the table. While putting a green cloth on it all around the table covering with it and using a hole table like carrom (billariads) table with pockets in each of the four corners and in the middle of each of the long side cushions. It is played using a cue and snooker balls: one white cue ball, 15 red balls worth one point each (sometimes played with fewer red balls, commonly 6 or 10), and six balls of different colours: yellow (2 points), green (3), brown (4), blue (5), pink (6), black (7).[1] A player (or team) wins a frame (individual game) of snooker by scoring more points than the opponent(s), using the cue ball to pot the red and coloured balls. A player (or team) wins a match when they have achieved the best-of score from a pre-determined number of frames. The number of frames is always odd so as to prevent a tie or a draw.!
