Snooker is a cue sport that is typically played on a table covered with a green cloth or baize, with pockets situated in each of the four corners and a further two, commonly referred to as the middle, or side pockets, that sit in the middle of each of the long side cushions. The cloth on a snooker table has a directional nap running from the balk end of the table towards the end with the spot. This affects how a ball rolls depending on which direction it is hit or shot. A regular table is 12 × 6 ft. It is played using a cue and 22 snooker balls: one white cue ball, 15 red balls worth one point each, and six balls of different colours: yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black. A player wins a frame of snooker by scoring more points than the opponent, using the cue ball to pot the red and coloured balls. A player receives additional points if the opponent commits a foul or fails to escape from a snooker. A player wins a match when a certain number of frames have been won. Snooker, generally regarded as having been invented in India by British Army officers, is popular in many of the English-speaking and Commonwealth countries, with top professional players attaining multi-million-pound career earnings from the game. The sport is now increasingly popular in China.
