Can you play snooker on a pool table?

The answer to this would be no if it was referring to tournament Snooker games, as the Table size and layout on the two are completely different.

There would be nothing to stop you if you are planning to play like this on a home use table, it’s just you will need to predict where the coloured balls would need to be placed on the table.

The coloured balls have certain spots as to where they need to site on the table, these are as follows.

Standing at the head of the table looking to the bottom you will have 3 coloured balls on the edge of the D these will go from left to right Green, Brown and yellow.

Then between the middle pockets you will have a Blue ball which will then follow onto a Pink which sits just before the group of red balls which will be set up with a triangle behind the reds you will have the Black ball.

The game will begin when someone breaks the red balls up by taking the shot from somewhere in the D
