Snooker is a cue sport where players win by scoring more points than their opponent. It is not like pool—where the winner of a frame is the player who clears all of his or her balls on the table before the other player—in snooker, the winner of a frame is the player who scores the more points than the other, awarded for potting balls with different point values. There are many snooker rules regarding how to play the snooker game. http://www.rkgsnooker.com/
There are many snooker books which define the snooker rules.
Snooker operates subject to two cores, defining the snooker rules. First, every time a red is potted (or sunk, or pocketed), the player must target a colour with the next shot, and continue to pot balls in the sequence red-colour-red-colour. Secondly, every time a red is potted, it remains removed from the table, but when a colour is potted, it is picked up by hand and placed back on the table on its original spot, which is pre-marked on the table cloth by a white mark. This rule holds while there are reds still on the table. After the 15th red is potted (plus an accompanying coloured ball), the colours must be potted in ascending order (yellow to black), and are Notre-placed on the table. After the final black is potted by any player, only the cue ball remains, and the player with the most points wins the game. There are many snooker records held many Indian snooker players which are recorded in snooker books.
A ball that may be legally potted on a given turn is referred to as being “on.” To begin, all 15 reds are “on,” and any of them may legally be potted; and if a red is potted, for the next shot the coloured balls are “on,” and the reds are not. If a player legally pots a ball and does not commit a foul, he or she takes the next shot. If a player does not pot a ball and/or commits a foul, he or she relinquishes the table to the opponent (although, as below, a player committing a foul may be compelled to re-take the shot). A frame of the snooker starts with the one of the players “breaking off” by hitting the cue ball from the “baulk line” at the top end of the table, into the reds. Unlike in the game of pool, the aim is not to hit the pack as hard as possible to scatter the reds all over the table. That would likely knock the high-value coloured balls into unpotable positions, and since a colour must be targeted after each red, this would create an interminably difficult and frustrating frame for the players and fans. Instead, the aim is generally to glance the cue ball into the corner of the reds, and have it carom off the cushions back down the far end of the table, leaving the opponent player with a long and difficult shot. One has to win the games in order to make the snooker record and many of the Indian snooker players held a record in this game.
