is a much known game for cue sports lovers. Every one is aware with
the concept and object of the game of Billiards. 3 Cushion carom is
as much similar to billiards and as much different with the object,
concept and equipment of the game.
3 Cushion carom is a game in cue
sports which is used to play on a pocket-less table which is
slightly bigger than a standard Pool table. The size of the table is
10’ x 5’. The Cloth of the table is nap-less and is electronically
heated. The cue is similar to Pool Cue. The balls size is also
bigger than the balls used in billiards, though they are same in number and color
as in Billiards (i.e. White, Yellow and Red). In addition to this,
the both the cue balls carry red spots on it as it helps the television
audiences to know the amount of spin used on the cue ball.
The object of the game is to make
contact of Cue Ball with other two object balls (very commonly known
as `Cannon' in Billiards), but the difference is the cannon should
also have a contact of cue ball with at least 3 cushion in-between.
This can happen in any order as long as the cue ball touches atleast
three cushions prior to touching second object ball.
