Power Snooker – Wikipedia

Power Snooker was a cue sport. Its concept was derived in part from the game of snooker. It also borrowed elements from the game of pool with racks being used and the balls set up in a diamond formation like in nine ball pool.

It was first played competitively in October 2010 in the United Kingdom.

Barry Hearn, the promoter of World Snooker, stated that Power Snooker is “designed to be faster and more exciting” than the traditional format of snooker.
