You place a triangle on the felt (more correctly baize), but what colour balls are meant to be arranged in this shape?
You are in the audience watching a very tight frame between two professional snooker players. You notice that the last red ball has been potted and the six coloured balls remain on the table. For the player at the table to go ahead in points he needs to pot a ball worth five points or more. Which of the following ball colours will not put him immediately in the lead?
You are sitting in the audience watching a compelling frame of snooker and your favourite player has just achieved a 147 break!

The World Snooker Championship is the most important event in this particular sport's annual calendar.
