Billiards is a much-known game for cue sports lovers. Everyone is aware of 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 that 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 ball's size is also bigger than the balls used in billiards, though they are the same in number and color as in Billiards (i.e. White, Yellow, and Red). In addition to this, both the cue balls carry red spots on them 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 the other two object balls (very commonly known as `Cannon' in Billiards), but the difference is the cannon should also have contact with the cue ball with at least 3 cushions in-between. This can happen in any order as long as the cue ball touches at least three cushions prior to touching the second object ball.
