Has anyone on the Forum played this version of Billiards. It looks interesting although I have only seen a few YouTube clips, but I’d like to know more about the rules.
I have never heard of it connected to those countries. Here are the results from the last world championship. You can find previous years on the UMB website. https://files.umb-carom.org/Uploads/Results/162/F. Final Ranking.pdfIsn't this also played in some Slavic (Russia area) countries?

Pocketing or caroming a ball is worth 5 points (the pocketed ball is respotted). This is clearly trivial in a race to 1000 and is normally played to improve the position. By comparison, knocking down all 7 pins in a single shot is worth 200 points.The pockets seem to have no function.
