Definition according to Wikipedia

Billiards Wikipedia.

Cue sports (sometimes spelled cuesports) are a wide variety of games of skill generally played with a cue stick which is used to strike billiard balls, moving them around a cloth-covered billiards table bounded by rubber cushions.
Historically, the umbrella term was billiards. While that familiar name is still employed by some as a generic label for all such games, the words' usage has splintered into more exclusive competing meanings among certain groups and geographic regions. In the United Kingdom, "billiards" refers exclusively to English billiards, while in the United States it is sometimes used to refer to a particular game or class of games, or to all cue games ingeneral, depending upon dialect and context.
There are three major subdivisions of games within cue sports:
Carom billiards Wikipedia.referring to games played on tables without pockets, including among others balkline and straight rail, cushion caroms, three-cushion billiards and artistic billiards.
Pocket billiardsWikipedia.(or"pool") generally played on a table with six pockets, including among others eight-ball (the world's most widely played cue sport), nine-ball, straightpool, one-pocket and bank pool.
* Snooker, which while technically a pocket billiards game, is generally classified separately based on its historic divergence from other games, aswell as a separate culture and terminology that characterize its play.
