This vintage book contains the billiards and snooker edition of the famous "Know The Game" series. Full of clear, step-by-step explanations and detailed diagrams, this timeless handbook constitutes a must-read for serious players, and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. The chapters of this volume include: “The Game”, “The Marking of the Table”, “How the Game is Played”, “Length of Game”, “Scoring”, “The Baulk Area”, “The Art of the Game”, “Chief Fouls in Billiards”, “Restrictions”, “The Referee”, “The Rests”, “The Half-Ball Shot”, “Types of Play”, etcetera. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on snooker, pool, and billiards.
