Anyone could get maximum points on this game but it requires a major investment of time and effort not to mention a lot of saving and reloading of matches that fail to go your way. A lot of the events are also locked until you get to a certain point in your career.

Introduction:
World Snooker Championship 2007 is a tough slog in order to get maximum points and the computer players will often win games in a single visit which means you should save often. I would recommend that you turn off auto-save in the options menu and then, when you hit the winning shot, quickly pause the game and turn it back on (then turn it off again after the save). This will save your progress and mean you can quit the game at any point and continue from when you last saved. If you look like you're losing a game you need to win then just quit back to the dashboard and go back into the game – you can then continue from when you saved or (if you haven’t saved during that match) start afresh with no penalty.

There is also a cheat that will give you unlimited points to boost your player’s statistics. When you are loading your progress quickly press and , you should hear a noise and then you can go to the statistics screen and max everything out. This makes finding position, applying spin and potting a lot easier so I would recommend it.

MOST IMPORTANT: You can only take part in EITHER a snooker or pool career and not both of them at once. Do NOT start a different career until you have got every achievement you need in your current career – if you do so then you will have to start from scratch and regain your ranking.


Step #1: Pool Career Playthrough
Create a player and make your way through the season, change the length to minimum in the menus so you play less frames per match. Use the stats cheat to get maximum points and use the save and reload technique to make sure you win every single game. Along the way you should endeavor to pick up all of the potting achievements as you will have more than enough matches to do so. If you win every event then you should get the Top 48 and Top 32 ranking achievements. Now you’ll have to play through a second season and again win every available event in order to get a Top 16 ranking. Once you’ve got that achievement you will need a further season in order to play in all of the events you previously didn’t qualify for. Make sure during the World Pool League that you win both frames – as you can draw these matches and doing so will result in you instantly losing the event. At the end of this season you should have now won every single Pool achievement. So you can switch to Snooker.

Step #2: Snooker Career Playthrough
Follow the same steps as the pool league and win every event in order to increase your ranking enough to enter, and win, the locked tournaments. This will take at least three seasons and you should work on getting all the break building achievements while you play. Careful positioning should make even the 147 break a fairly easy task by now.

Step #3: Extra events and Hybrid
Once you have completed the snooker and pool seasons and unlocked everything possible you will have made the Golden Cue and Trickshot tournaments available in the main menu. So go and complete these events which will leave you with everything done EXCEPT for All Championships Unlocked. Now you will need to start a Hybrid season and get a Top 16 ranking in order to unlock the final achievement. This event sees you picking between snooker and pool events and getting a separate rank for each. You only need one of them to reach Top 16 so I would suggest concentrating on either snooker OR pool rather than a mix. This way you will get the rank required a lot sooner. It will still take three seasons mind you.

Conclusion:
This is one of the toughest games to max out on the 360 because the events can take an extremely long amount of time and the skill of the computer can lead to you having to reload fairly often. You will have to play through a Snooker, Pool and Hybrid season a minimum of three times each to get maximum points. I wish you the best of luck.

Pool: Jump Shot10
Play a shot where the ball leaves the table in Pool championship mode 

In order to get this achievement you need to hit the white (cue) ball so that it “jumps” over the small boarders that the table has. The simplest way I’ve found to do this is to hit the ball with the most power you can and at 50 or more degrees of leverage. It’s also best to aim at the edge closest to you.
This must be done in pool mode.

Snooker: 50 Break10
Score 50 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 

See the achievement “Snooker 147 Break”

Snooker: 100 Break10
Score 100 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 

See the achievement “Snooker 147 Break”

Snooker: 147 Break30
Score 147 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode (2) 

A 147 (or one-four-seven) is when you hit all 15 red balls, all 15 black balls, and the 6 colored balls into the pockets without missing a shot and off of the first turn you take. This means that you have to hit the balls in this order

Red

Since you need to hit a black ball every other turn up until the 30th turn you should keep you white ball near the bottom of the table near where the black ball is placed. Of course you should take your time and be aware of the moves you are making. Try to be aware of where your ball may land, which balls you are going to hit, and if the ball is going to go in.
Clearly this is one of the more difficult achievements.
Here is a video of the one-four-seven happening in real life. The setup and strategy are the same so hopefully it will help.

 
Also, remember that this must be done in Snooker mode. 
Pool: Pot 4 balls in a row10
Pot 4 balls in a row in Pool championship mode 

This achievement isn’t too difficult. What it means to pot the 4 balls in a row is to get 4 balls (of your designated color) into the pockets without missing a shot in-between.
Set the game type to 8 ball and then go for 4 of the same color in a row. This doesn’t need to be done from the start of the match and you don’t even need to win the match.

Pool: Break Ace20
Pot the 9 Ball from the break in Pool championship mode 

This achievement takes quite a bit of luck. This achievement must be done in the pool type 9 ball. You must get the 9 ball into any pocket off of the break (the first hit.) The main problem here is that the 9 ball is located in the center of the balls and thus is the hardest to move and hit out. I recommend hitting the ball very hard and slightly off to the sides of the setup. Expect to use the restart button a bit.
The below image shows what the basic 9 ball setup looks like.

Pool: 4 Balls from break10
Pool: Pot 4 balls from the break in Championship mode 

Another luck based achievement. As with 9 ball this should be done on the game type 9 ball. Most likely it will unlock while going for the achievement “Break Ace.”
What you need to do for this achievement is hit 4 balls into the pockets off of the break (first shot.) Expect to restart a lot. Try testing around with different powers, angles, spin, etc.

Snooker: Complete Clearance20
Pot all of the balls on the table in one break in Snooker championship mode 

Should unlock when you unlock the “Snooker-147 Break.” The only difference between that and this achievement is that you don’t have to do this on the first turn. So you can set up a few of the balls nearby the pockets as long as you hit all 36 balls into the pockets without missing a shot or allowing your enemy to get one in.

Snooker: Win frame with Snookers10
Win a frame of Snooker which requires you to put your opponent in a Snooker to win in champ mode 

In order to win a frame by snookering you need to put your opponent into a “snooker” one or more times per game (depending on rules.)
Now if you don’t know what a “snooker” is here is a snooker as defined by the worldofsnooker.com:

The cue-ball is said to be snookered when a direct stroke in a straight line to every ball on is wholly or partially obstructed by a ball or balls not on. If one or more balls on can be struck at both extreme edges free of obstruction by any ball not on, the cue-ball is not snookered.?
(a) If in-hand, the cue-ball is snookered if it is obstructed as described above from all possible positions on or within the lines of the "D".?
(b) If the cue-ball is so obstructed from hitting a ball on by more than one ball not on?
(i) the ball nearest to the cue-ball is considered to be the effective snookering ball, and?
(ii) should more than one obstructing ball be equidistant from the cue-ball, all such balls will be considered to be effective snookering balls.?
(c) When Red is the ball on, if the cue-ball is obstructed from hitting different Reds by different balls not on, there is no effective snookering ball.?
(d) The striker is said to be snookered when the cue-ball is snookered as above?
(e) The cue-ball cannot be snookered by a cushion. If the curved face of a cushion obstructs the cue-ball and is closer to the cue-ball than any obstructing ball not on, the cue-ball is not snookered.

Basically what is required for a “snooker” is to force your opponent to hit a not-on ball. This means the opponent hits a black ball when required to hit a red ball or vice versa. The best and simplest way to do this is to hit the cue ball into a position where the AI needs to hit through the black ball to reach the red balls or through the red ball to reach the black ball.

More often than not the AI will try to find ways around getting “snooked” so try to trap the AI with red balls and force them to hit at least one when then are going for the black balls. That or trap the AI in a corner with an “off” ball blocking it.

Snooker: Beat a seeded player10
Beat a seeded player in an event which requires qualification in Snooker championship mode 

Seeded players are those that are in the top 16 of the snooker ranking system. Finishing an entire match above them will award you the achievement. The higher ranked you are in career mode the more seeded players you will play.

Snooker: White wash win20
Beat an opponent in a ranking event without them scoring any points in Snooker championship mode 

If you got the 147 or complete clearance achievements you should already have this. If not than here’s how to unlock it.
Simply beat an opponent without allowing them to get one ball in the pocket, or allowing them to get any points from penalties. The lower ranked the enemy is the better chance you have of getting more misses from them and in turn more chances to get all the balls in. You are allowed as many turns as you want; as long as the opponents score stays at 0 then you are solid.

Pool: Entire Rack from Break20
Get a run of the entire rack from the break in Pool championship mode 

Set the game to 9 ball on pool mode. For this achievement you need to get all the balls into the pockets in the designated order without allowing your opponent to get a turn.
For those of you unfamiliar with the rules of 9-ball this means you need to get the balls in in the order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 without missing a single shot and off of the first available turn.

Pool: Run of the entire rack20
Get a run of the entire rack in Pool championship mode 

Similar to the achievement “Entire Rack From the Break” except this achievement can be done on any shot, not just the first shot. That means you can use any extra turns you want to set up the balls for some easy shots. As long as all the balls are hit in in just one turn and your opponent hits none in then the achievement is yours.

Snooker: Top 48 world ranking10
Get a world ranking of 48 or better in Snooker championship mode (1) 

See the achievement “Snooker Top 32 World Ranking.”

Snooker: Top 32 world ranking10
Get a world ranking of 32 or better in Snooker championship mode 

This achievement will unlock as you progress through career mode. The simple way to rank up is to win matches, you rank up faster for winning championships as well. Obviously setting the matches shorter (set to 3 frames per match) will make this achievement go quicker.

Snooker: N.Ireland Champ10
Win the Northern Ireland Championship in Snooker championship mode 

As you progress through the career mode of the snooker mode you will be invited to tournaments and championships. Accept these invitations and you will begin competing in a tournament. Finishing in first will award you the achievement for said tournament.
The simplest way to win these is to set the frames to the minimum (3) and then after completing each match saving your game. If you happen to lose a match or are about to return to the dashboard and then reload your previous save.
You will unlock most of the matches as you reach the top 16.

Snooker: Preston Qualify Win10
Get through the qualifiers at Preston in Snooker championship mode 

Similar to the champ achievements except the qualifies are slightly different types and are only accessible before you reach the top 16. The qualifiers are 2 best of 5 frames matches. You must win both matches to continue and be awarded the achievement.
Again saving and then quitting if you are close to losing is the best way to achieve these.
