They, in turn, have a lot of variations, each of which is called differently. For example, the Russian billiards include "American", "Pyramid" with its varieties ("Little Russian", "Moscow"), as well as other games.
The general rules of the game of billiards are simple and are reducedto the next. The action takes place at a special table: it's called a billiard table. On it, in a certain order, balls are put, which can be of different colors and sizes. The player is required, holding a cue, in a certain way to hit them on one of the balls, so that he touches the other balls on the table. Before you strike, you must adhere to important conditions: the cue must walk freely, in a straight line, and the position of the body must be fixed and comfortable for the player himself. The goal of the game is to score as many balls as possible in the special holes. In many types of billiards players can be fined: for example, for interfering with an opponent or an outside observer in the game, for deliberately delaying the game, for touching an alien ball, for improperly performing an attack, etc.
And then the variations begin. For example, the rules of the game in Russian billiards are complicated by the fact that the balls in it are relatively large and heavy, and the pockets are on the contrary small. Therefore, the game is only possible for experienced billiards. But the pool in this respect is more democratic. The rules of the game in American billiards are reduced to a competent choice of tactics and strategy. To hammer the ball is simple: it is small, and the pocket is almost a half times wider than its diameter. Therefore, in this version of the game, the opponents try to create an ideal strike position for the cue ball, and also in every way hinder the possibility of hitting their opponent.
