BACKGROUND OF THE PRESENT INVENTION

[0001] Field of Invention

[0002] The present invention relates to a field of entertainment, and more particularly to a billiards device and a using method thereof.

[0003] Description of Related Arts

[0004] Billiards is a popular game worldwide, which comprises 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. Many different styles and designs of billiards tables have been developed. Typically such a billiards table comprises a wooden frame and support legs supporting a playing surface covered with felt and surrounded by rails having a resilient inner edge to facilitate rebounding of the billiards balls in play.

[0005] There are three major subdivisions of billiards: [0006] Carom billiards, referring to games played on tables without pockets, typically 10 feet in length, including balkline and straight rail, cushion caroms, three-cushion billiards, artistic billiards and four-ball; [0007] Pool, covering numerous pocket billiards games generally played on six-pocket tables of 7-, 8-, or 9-foot length, including among others eight-ball (the world's most widely played cue sport), nine-ball (the dominant professional game), ten-ball, straight pool (the formerly dominant pro game), one-pocket, and bank pool; and [0008] Snooker and English billiards, games played on a billiards table with six pockets called a snooker table (which has dimensions just under 12 ft by 6 ft), that are classified entirely separately from pool based on a separate historical development, as well as a separate culture and terminology that characterize their play.

[0009] Since 1893, regulated international professional competitions of billiards had occurred, and the game changed little. However, as time goes by, new types of billiards are desired for fresh experiences.
