Really!!! I thought they were all the same. I mean I seen the snooker tournaments and they have all the red balls with one black, blue, green, yellow and white ball, but when I went to the club they called the game they were playing there (which I see as pool) snooker as well. Thanks for your response. Now I have something to prove to my husband that they are different. Thanks!

Wow how interesting! I never heard of snooker. As for pool and billiards, I thought they were the same too. Like someone once said, you learn something knew everyday on here.

they are all different. some information, snooker came first, then pool. another type of game is very fun to play is bar billiards, you stay at one end and shoot only.
