Snooker – Wikipedia


Snooker is a cue sport that originated among British Army officers stationed in India in the second half of the 19th century.

The World Snooker Championship has taken place since 1927. Joe Davis won the championship 15 straight times.

The “modern era” began in 1969. Key figures were Ray Reardon in the 1970s, Steve Davis in the 1980s, and Stephen Hendry in the 1990s. Since 2000, Ronnie O’Sullivan has won the most world titles. Reanne Evans is the most successful women player.
