I've never heard of "Snooker" before, but if it's about sinking incredible pool shots like this, consider me a fan...
quote:

Snooker is a cue sport that was first played by British Army officers stationed in India in the second half of the 19th century. It is played on a rectangular table covered with a green cloth (or "baize"), with six pockets: one at each corner and one in the middle of each long side. Using a cue stick, the players take turns to strike the white "cue ball" to pot the other twenty-one snooker balls in the correct sequence, accumulating points for each pot. An individual frame of snooker is won by the player who has scored the most points by the end of the frame. A snooker match ends with one of the players having won a predetermined number of frames, thus winning the match. Snooker gained its identity in 1875 when army officer Sir Neville Chamberlain (1856–1944), stationed in Ootacamund, Madras, devised a set of rules that combined black pool and pyramids.

My best trick shot was catching the other person standing on opposite end and saying “watch this shot” and placing a quarter on the table and hitting the cue ball at the quarter making it jump and hit the person in the balls
