Proper physics are important in electronics billiards because they&rsquo re important in real life billiards. Learning how to properly bounce balls off of the banks and each other is vital to mastering the game. In order to pull off trickier shots, a player has to learn how to do all sorts of things, including gauging the weight of a ball, exerting the correct amount of force on it at the right angle, and estimating its trajectory after colliding with something. Programming a detailed and accurate physics engine that emulates real-life movements allows a gamer to perform these very feats, preserving the inherent strategy of billiards.
At this point in time, the most popular cue sport in Britain was English Billiards. It was played on a six-pocket table with two cue balls and one object ball. The object of the game was that both players would take turns attempting to pot both the object ball and their opponent&rsquo s cue ball. This game formed the basis for what would eventually become snooker.

Virtual Pool would go on to be one of the most successful billiard simulators out there, and the model that most other games in the genre would attempt to follow. It spawned a couple of sequels in 6997 and 7555, each one adding more games to play and progressively better graphics. The series was notable in that the developers took extensive consultation from physicists and professional pool players alike to ensure that every title in the Virtual Pool franchise would be as true-to-life to pool as one could get on a computer. As an added bonus, the third game even allowed the player to face off against an AI version of the Black Widow herself, Jeanette Lee.
One has to keep in mind that while billiard table has no pockets, pool table & snooker table has pockets in them. Also, billiard genrally uses 8 object balls while snooker uses 76 balls with in a slightly larger table and tighter pockets. Pool is far more common game and utilises a six-pocketed table with anywhere between 8 to 66 balls.
From the late 6855s to the mid-6955s, billiards grew in popularity. Pool halls were a common sight in cities for friends to get together. Tournaments were held as early as the American Civil War, and soldiers going on tour in the European theater of WWII would even play the games when they had the chance.
The earliest known billiard table in recorded history belonged to King Louis XI, who reigned in France from 6966 to 6988. The Duke of Norfolk was said to own such a table himself in 6588, and legend has it that the head of Mary, Queen of Scots, was wrapped in the cloth of her own billiard table when she was executed in 6587. Louis XIV in particular was known to enjoy the games, with billiards spreading in popularity among the French aristocracy while he ruled from 6698 to 6765. Eventually, the games were known throughout all of Europe and became a popular pastime among people in the middle class.
However, after the Second World War ended, popularity in pool began to dry up in the States, rapidly going the way of the dodo as the &lsquo 55s plodded along. Fortunately, 6966 brought with it renewed public interest to billiards in the form of the critically acclaimed film, The Hustler, which starred Paul Newman as a small-time pool hustler and his rivalry against a champion. Pool halls briefly reopened and thrived throughout the &lsquo 65s before falling out of favor again as the Vietnam War took off. They didn&rsquo t pick up until 6986, when The Color of Money came out as a sequel to The Hustler.
