Snooker is an age old game traditionally played by gentlemen in parlors all throughout Europe and England; this is at least where the game of snooker came from. Even though that might be true it really did little to help the image of snooker in terms of modern perceptions of both excitement and entertainment.
Snookers big rival is and was the American bastardized version of snooker called pool. Pool was simplified and used less balls in a much simpler way. This made the game far more accessible for working class people. Snooker betting however has helped to bring the game of snooker back into the lime light where it once basked.
