There is a billiards tutorial at the related link. The game is a cue game and the object is to score points. These can be gained by potting a ball, by allowing the cue ball to go "in-off" the object ball and also in-off your opponents ball. Cannons also score points.
You get a snooker stick and you hit the cue ball into the object ball in line with one of the pockets.
The country where billiards originated is disputed by historians. Several countries (China, England, France, Italy, Spain) played billiards as early as the 14th century. Click on the 'Billiards' link on this page to read more about the history and the games (eight-ball, nine-ball, snooker, etc.) that are considered billiard games.
One method - fasten the shaft to a straight pole. It should follow a new shape now.(the pole). Apply moisture and hair dryer as often as possible. In a weeks time, depending on the humidity of the country your in, it should keep the cuestick straight.
You can also add a SMALL amount of vinegar to the water to help the wood become flexible (until dried). Vinegar can discolor the cue though, and you may have to remove some of the finish to get the moisture into the wood of the shaft.
Second method - Hang the cue - hangers can be purchased or made using string and rubber bands - a hanging cue will be straighter than one against a pole because the shaft has a taper (cue shafts do not have a straight side). Use the moisture as described above.
A jump break cue is a cue that billiard players use to break with and also the same cue breaks down into a jump cue. Traditionally, a break cue is a heavier cue that has a stiff shaft to transfer power from the player to the cue and ultimately to the racked balls on the other side of the table. There is a notion that a thinner shaft will give a "whip" action. this "whip action ismilliseconds after the hit on the cue ball, the shaft is temporally deformed and in another couple milliseconds, the shaft violently returns back to its original straight form. The violent return to its original form is the whip action.
The jump portion of the cue is the shaft and the front prong (front 12" of cue behind the shaft and before the handle of the cue) of the cue that separates from the rest of the cue.
Legal jumps in billiards are strikes on the upper half of the cue ball. The action of the cue ball is pressed down onto the table and as a reaction, the cue ball squirts in an upward motion leaving the table surface.
Jump cues need to be light in weight as to make contact with the cue ball and be off of the it so the milliseconds it takes for the cue ball to respond, it won't be restricted by a jump cue that is still in the way of the cue ball's jump.
Billiards uses a cue ball.
On average, the balls are 2.25 inches in diameter and all balls weigh 5.5 oz except for the cue, which weighs 6 oz.

Of or pertaining to the game of billiards.
A billiard is a shot in billiards or snooker in which the cue ball strikes two other balls. It also refers to a cardinal number, 10 to the power of 15, or one thousand billion.
The game of English Billiards has only 3 balls. Your opponents cue ball, your cue ball and the object ball which is red. There is thus only 1 colored ball. White, Spot White & Red. (The spot white is simply a white ball with spots on it to make it different to the plain white).
Pocket Billiards may use any number of balls from 8 to 22, with one being the white cue ball, which may have colored dots.
HAMILTON,New Zealand--English-born Singaporean billiards master Peter Gilchrist has set a new world record break in Hamilton.
On the first day of the New Zealand Open Billiards Championships at the Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club yesterday, he shot a break of 1346, easily surpassing the previous world record of 1246.
In true Billiards there is only 1 red ball. In snooker there are 15 reds.
It's a shot in pool where you hit the ball, much like cutting a carrot, making the ball spin around (masse) the obstructing ball. It's an art and takes practice. Some hit the masse pointing the cue vertically.
Originally they were ivory, now they are a composite man made polymer
The basic forms of the game have been around since the 1400's - so 600 years (or more). Its 'modern' form only dates back to the late 1800's (although that is arguable as well).
i would think alcohol would do the trick. just make sure they're dry before putting them back on the table Depending on their composition, the material that the balls are made from, alcohol could permanently damage the balls. Assuming you are using modern balls made from any of a various type of phenolic material currently on the market, the best product I have found is a ball polish made by Karseal. The second best is Turtle Wax car polish. Both do an excellent job. Do not use products such as Windex, Brasso, or Nu-Finish car wax, as each will leave a film on the surface of the balls which will affect their playability. I know of someone who thought Rain-X would be good. He quickly found that was a horrible mistake and also found it difficult to get the resulting film off the balls.
Jackie Robinson, who began his career with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, was the first known black to play major league baseball in the modern era after 1900. Moses Fleetwood Walker, who played for the Toledo Blue Stockings of the old American Association, is credited with being the first black player in major league history.
While the term "billiards" is appropriate to use when naming any game played on a billiards table, before laying out the rules of a pool game, let's quickly distinguish the difference between "billiards" and "pool" and thus, the objects of the games. Some die-hard pool and billiards players consider "billiards" to be "carom" games only, a carom being the act of hitting two balls with one stroke of a pool cue. Pool, on the other hand, is "pocket billiards": the act of hitting a ball into a pocket. Now, to be sure, pocket billiards takes on many forms, each differentiated largely by the number and size of balls used in play. Most traditional American pool games, though, such as the kind you'd play at the corner pub or in your own basement, are "8-ball pool" games played with 16 balls: 15 colored and one white "cue ball." Basic Rules of the Game
At the start of a pool game, players must "rack" the balls in a triangular pool rack; all balls must be touching. The first shot of the game is a "break shot": one player breaks the group of colored, or "object," balls by hitting the cue ball into the mass. Object balls come in both solid colors and stripes; during a game, one player will use the solid balls and the other will use the striped balls. Each player will take turns attempting to hit his group of balls into one of the six pockets on a standard pool table. During play, players are required to "call their shots," or announce which ball is intended for which hole at the time of a shot. A player's turn lasts until he does not shoot a ball into a pocket. Whichever player pockets all his balls first is the winner, though sinking the black 8-ball at any point in the game ends it; the player who pocketed it, before pocketing his remaining assigned balls, loses. * http://www.billiardsauthority.com/pool-tables/billiardspoolrulesarticle.cfm
It can be done, but because the cue ball left the table, the other player is up, and has ball in hand.
