斯诺克 snooker 是一种台球运动。Snooker 的动词形式有欺骗的意思。如果我们说某人被 snookered，意思就是那个人被骗了。
- I was snookered by a fake internet company – I paid one hundred pounds for a handbag but never received anything!
- This email says I will receive ten thousand pounds if I hand over my bank details – do you think someone‘s trying to snooker me?
值得注意的是，短语 pot shot 可以用来表达批评某人，尤其是在此人已经成为大家的抨击对象时。
- The scandal allowed the opposition to take a pot shot at the government.
