The Snooker Table

Read the example assignment and find the grammar mistakes.
Snooker is a cue game for two players,
which is played indoors on a large table.
It is a cue game like billiards and pool.
Snooker tables are
bigger than pool tables.
playing ✖ VF
with a long wooden stick,
called a cue and twenty-two balls on
large felt-covered table.
There is a white cue ball
is so called because it is the only ball that is allowed to
be struck with the cue.
There are 21 other balls on the table
which players try to knock into one
of six holes
in the corners and on either side of the table.
These holes are
SPELL = referred
to as pockets and when you manage to knock the white ball into another ball
INSERT => so
that it goes into one of the holes, we say that we have
that ball. Aside from the white cue ball there are fifteen
red balls and six coloured balls.
in snooker, red balls are not considered
to be coloured whilst the black ball is.
The players take turns to visit
the table and try to score points by potting some of the balls.
When you score points during a
single visit to the table we say that you are building a break.
The break comes
an end when you eventually
don't pot another ball or you make a foul shot.
Occasionally in professional tournaments a player
clears the whole table in a single break.
This was first achieved by
Canadian, Cliff Thorburn,
Each time a player visits the table to start a new break,
he must first play for a red ball and
either attempt to pot it,
leave the cue ball in a safe position.
If he is successful
in potting a red ball
then he must choose a coloured ball
as the next target ball.
Red balls score one point and
when they are potted they stay in the pocket
INSERT = until
the end of the game.
Each game is called a frame and a match may consist
a series of frames.
Each ball has a different point value:
red=1, yellow=2, green=3, brown=4, blue=5, pink=6, and black=7.
A break continues by potting red and then coloured
balls alternately into the table pockets.
When a coloured ball is
pocketed and there are still red balls
VERB FORM = remaining
on the table, the umpire will re-spot that coloured ball.
That is, he will
place it back on it's nominated starting position.
The two players continue to take turns
the game ends.
When all the red balls have been potted
the players have to pot the coloured balls in ascending point order.
That would be, yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and finally black.
Since at this stage there are no more reds on the table,
the coloured balls are no
WORD FORM = longer
put back in their original position.
The snooker game ends when
either one of the players
resigns the frame rather than commencing his next break, or
all the balls have been pocketed,
including the final black.
The winner is the player who has scored the highest number of points.
