Canot chat with other players yahoo pool?

Snooker is a billards sport that is played on a large (12' × 6') baize-covered table with pockets in each of the four corners and in the middle of each of the long cushions. It is played using a cue, one white ball (the cue ball), 15 red balls and 6 colours: a yellow (worth 2 points), green (3 points), brown (4 points), blue (5 points), pink (6 points) and black ball (7 points). A player wins a frame of snooker by scoring the most points, through using the cue ball to pot all the red and coloured balls. A match consists of an agreed number of frames. Snooker is particularly popular in English-speaking countries (Britain, Ireland, Canada, Australia and South Africa), and there has recently been a surge of interest in East Asia, with players from Hong Kong, China and Thailand entering the rankings. It's also very popular in Pakistan and India.

Definitions of snooker on the Web:

* A snooker is a shot that leaves the opponent unable to hit a legal ball directly. The opponent is said to be snookered. If potting all the remaining balls would still leave a player trailing his opponent, then he is said to be needing snookers. At this point the only way for him to win is to lure the opponent into making fouls.

Was it ever recovered , if the story is true ?

It's a lot like pool, but it's played on a 12' table (pool is played on 6' - 9' tables) with much smaller balls and very small pockets. It's very challenging. There are a set of numbered balls like in pool, but there is also a set of red balls. I don't remember exactly what the rules are or what order you shoot the balls in. Snooker is mostly played in Europe, but sometimes the billiard parlors in the U.S. have a table or two.
