The first version of billiards dates back to the 15th century, but one of its more popular variants was not invented until the 19th century in India by British soldiers. The first rules of the game were developed by Sir Neville Chamberlain. Today, snooker is popular all over the world, and the Snooker World Championship has been held every year since 1927. The game is played on a fairly large table (357 cm x 178 cm) with 22 balls and 6 pockets. One of the balls is white and is called the cue ball, and the others should be pocketed in the correct order.
