I think snooker is a great game, and would watch it for hours and hours on television. It’s a game of the mind, and has a pretty simple set of laws and scoring system. If your opponent is at the table there’s absolutely nothing you can do.
However, I found out a couple of weeks ago that it’s not so great to watch in person. This is a photo of John Higgins (the eventual winner of the tournament) being interviewed by the tournament director at the 2015 Australian Open.
It was very cool to see how they televise snooker though.
