It is possible for anyone to get 1000 on this game but it will take you a while and the A.I has the ability to win any frame of snooker or pool in one visit. I suggest you go the route of saving and reloading of matches that you look like you might lose. Slightly less time consuming than WSC 2007 though.

Introduction:
World championship snooker 2009 is a long and very repetitive 1000. My main tip for the game is when you are in either championship mode, ensure that if you are losing or looking like you will lose then quit out of the match either by pausing and quitting (make sure the A.I. has not potted the winning ball) and this will take you to start of the match with the scores at 0-0, or exit to dashboard and reload this will take you to the last save point which will be the frame before you quit out. There is a rumored cheat for unlocking everything but does not unlock the ability to max your stats and gives no real advantage to get the 1000. There is also a massive glitch where some people report being able to simulate every game and win without even playing but this seems very random and did not happen to me.

Step 1: Tutorials, etc.
I would suggest that the first thing you do is complete the tutorials, then trick shots and then challenges. These will give you one skill point for each completed shot to improve your player's stats. Doing the above 3 things will get you 115 skill points, I would concentrate on adding skill points to potting and positioning to get these as high as possible.
Completed Tutorials, Trick shot Champion, Completed Challenges
- 80

Step 2: 8 Ball
Start an 8 ball season next. It will take a bit of getting used to the difference between the spot ball and stripes ball as it is not too easy to see sometimes. In WSC 2009 there is only one tournament in the pool season and once you win the tournament or get knocked out you need to start a new season. There are 4 matches to win in order to win the tournament. If you are going for the whole 1000 you will need to win this tournament 10 times. After winning it 10 times you should have added at least another 40 skill points.
Pool: Pot 2 balls in a row, Pool: Pot 4 balls in a row, Pool: Pot 6 balls in a row, Pool: Match Winner, Pool Championship Semis, Pool Champion, Pool: Longevity, Pool: 2 for 1, Pool: Jump Shot - 150

Step 3: Golden Cue
After you've won the 8 ball championship in step 2, you should have unlocked the golden cue tournament. I would advise doing this now as you have to play snooker, 8 ball and 9 ball and you can get by without winning all the snooker frames. You will also gain point towards your stats for winning these games. I suggest you go the route of saving and reloading matches that you look like you might lose or you will have to start the tournament all over again if you lose in the final. It is likely that you will unlock some of the snooker break achievements while on you snooker frames and maybe some of the 9 ball achievements. If you don’t, do not worry as you will have the chance many more times later on.
Golden Cue Champion - 20

Step 4 – Mini Mop Up
Having completed the 8 ball achievements you can now mop up the last of the pool achievements by going into versus mode, 9 ball match and set the frame length to 25 frames. I would go for the Pool: Break Ace every time it’s your turn to break and Pool: Jammy every time the A.I. breaks. This way if you do not sink the 9 ball from the break you can then go for Pool: Entire rack from the break. Also you will be able to get Pool: Jump shot and Pool: 2 for 1 in 9 ball mode if you did not get these in 8 ball mode.
Pool: Entire rack from the break, Pool: Jammy, Pool: Break Ace
– 45

Step 5: Snooker
There is no quick way of doing this, you will need to win nearly every tournament for at least 2 seasons to unlock all the snooker achievements. The first tournament you start you will have to play 5 qualifying games and once you get used to the game you should find it not too hard. You need to be ranked 15th in the world (you can check this every time you start a new match) by the time the 3rd tournament (pot black) comes around in the second season. The easiest way to get all the achievements is to complete two whole seasons and win every single tournament this way the only achievements you will not automatically get is Snooker: Break 147 and Snooker: Complete clearance. Most Snooker achievements – 655

Step 6: Mop up and Finish
If you have not get the 147 break by now you should start your third season and concentrate just on this, if you are playing someone low in the ranking then I suggest hitting and splitting the reds quite wide open and hope the A.I. will miss, if he does you will have a nice open bunch of red for your break if he pots and clears up do not worry and do not quit. Once you have your 147 break you can now lose every match you play. The quickest way to do this is start the match and as soon as it is your shot pause and concede frame. Do this for the last 3 seasons and when you finish season 5, the Snooker: Longevity will unlock.
Snooker: Longevity – 50

Conclusion:
In conclusion a very long, but not too hard 1000. Because you can play the snooker and pool seasons for an infinite number of seasons, any achievements that are not unlocked in either snooker, 8 ball or 9 ball can be played for as many times as you want. The hardest achievement on the game is the 147 break, but if you take your time it should come. My only advice would be make sure you add points to potting and positioning before adding to any other skills. If you are really struggling you can use a piece of A4 paper to line from the middle of the cue ball to the middle of the pocket and then move the ball marker to the edge of the paper. Good luck...

Snooker: 10 Break5
Score 10 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 
See “Snooker: 100 Break” or “Snooker: 147 Break
Completed Tutorials10
Complete all of the tutorials (3) 

The tutorials are available from the main menu by choosing 'Practice' and then 'Coach'.There are 90 shots in 5 categories each has a number of sub-categories that have to be completed in order to get this achievement.It's handy to do the tutorials before you start playing the season mode because you get 1 skill point for every shot completed.


All shots have the option of watching a demo before you attempt the shot in order to see what exactly you need to do.You need to complete the first shot before you are able to attempt the next shot.

Pool: Pot 2 balls in a row10
Pot 2 balls in a row in Pool championship mode (1) 
See “Pool: Pot 6 balls in a row”
Pool: Pot 4 balls in a row10
Pot 4 balls in a row in Pool championship mode 
See “Pool: Pot 6 balls in a row”
Pool: Jammy!10
Pot the 9 ball after opponent has cleared the rest of the table in any human versus AI Pool mode 
The 9 ball matches are single matches, there are no tournaments for this. Set up a versus match, 9 ball, with best of 25 frames and you must make sure that you miss every shot you have so that the A.I. pots the 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8 ball and hope he misses the 9 ball. Pot the 9 ball and the achievement will unlock. I found that by deliberately fouling and hitting the 9 ball tight on one of the cushions roughly in the middle of the cushion meant that the A.I. missed the 9 ball 90% of the time. Once the achievement has unlocked you can either quit the match or continue for the other 9 ball achievements.
Snooker: Complete First Season10
Complete a season in snooker championship mode 
This is awarded as soon as you start your second season, you do not have to win any of the championships if you don’t want to you just have to finish the season.
Pool: Longevity10
Play 40 or more games in pool championship mode (1) 
This is a time consuming achievement which lots of people says is glitched. I don’t think it is I unlocked it fine. The 8 Ball season is available from the main menu. When the season screen appears make sure the length is set to 25% and select next match, then start the match. The first round match is best of one frame so win the frame and match, when you return to the season screen select next match and from here there are 2 ways to get the achievement.

1. Continue in the way that you won the “Pool Champion” and after everyseason completed ensure you hit start new season. There are 4 matches per season so you will have to win the 8 ball season 10 times.

2. After you have won the first match lose the second and when the season screen appears select start new season and play the first round match best of 1 frame, then lose second round again, new season rinse andrepeat 36 times. (You should have 4 wins from winning the championship for “Pool Champion”)
Earn first nickname10
Earn first nickname 
This will come straight after winning your first snooker tournament in snooker season mode. If you want to check what nickname you have go into profile from the main screen and then career and it will display on the screen.
Snooker: 25 Break10
Score 25 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 
See “Snooker: 100 Break” or “Snooker: 147 Break”
Snooker: Champ Qualification10
Qualify for a championship in snooker championship mode 
When you are in snooker championship mode you start the season by having to qualify for the Shanghai tournament and will have to play 5 qualifying matches which are all best of one frame, win all of these matches and the achievement is yours.

If you think you are going to lose a match you can quit to dashboard and reload then you will just start the that frame again.
Pool: Break Ace10
Pot the 9 Ball from the break in any human versus AI Pool mode 
The 9 ball matches are single matches there are no tournaments for them. Set up a versus match, 9 ball, with best of 25 frames and when it is your turn to break you must pot the 9 ball from the break, now this is tricky as the 9 ball is right in the middle of the pack.

When it is your turn to break position the white ball as far forward as it will go, and about a balls width away from the right hand side cushion, you will need full power with no spin. You need to hit the front ball as thin as possible so that in overhead view the line for where the first ball will travel is straight forward, the line for the white ball should be straight into the other balls.

This is very luck based and will only happen in 1 out of 10 trys.
Snooker: 50 Break10
Score 50 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 
See “Snooker: 100 Break” or “Snooker: 147 Break”

Pool: Match Winner20
Win a Pool match in championship mode 
The 8 Ball season is available from the main menu. When the season screen appears make sure the length is set to 25% and select next match, then start the match. The first round match is best of one frame so win the frame and match.

Pool: Jump Shot20
Play a shot where the cue ball leaves the table and pots another ball in a human versus AI Pool mode 
This can be won in 8 or 9 ball matches as long as you are playing single player, this will probably unlock on the way to the “Pool: Longevity” achievement. The white ball has to jump over one of your opponents balls and hit and pot your nominated ball into the nominated pocket. You also must be right behind your opponent’s ball for this to unlock.
Pool: 2 for 120
Pot 2 balls with one shot in any human versus AI Pool mode 
This can be won in 8 or 9 ball matches as long as you are playing single player, this will probably unlock during the “Pool: Longevity” achievement. It is easiest to get from the break with full power and full topspin. It can also be unlocked within the frame but the two balls you pot must be your balls (spots or striped balls) and you must nominate which ball is going into which pocket first.
Pool: Pot 6 balls in a row20
Pot 6 balls in a row in Pool championship mode 
The 8 Ball season is available from the main menu. When the season screen appears make sure the length is set to 25% and select next match, then start the match. It does not matter whether you break or the A.I. does as long as when you get your shot you pot 6 balls of your own balls in a row. This should take 6 shots 1 ball per shot.
Completed Challenges20
Complete all of the challenges 
The challenges are available from the main menu by choosing 'Practice' and then challenges. There are 10 challenges in total, they are mostly scenarios like clear all the balls in order to win the frame, each one has an explanation of what to do and they are not that tricky.

It is really handy to do the challenges before you start playing the season mode because you get 1 skill point for every shot completed. You need to complete the first shot before you are able to attempt the next shot.
Pool Championship Semis20
Reach the semi-finals in Pool championship mode 
Although this says reach thesemi-final it doesn’t seem to unlock until you have won the semi-final. Once you have won the first match you return to the season screen and from there select next match, this is a best 3 frame match so you will need to win 2 frames, again return to the season screen, next match which will be the semi-final which is a best of 5 frame match meaning you have to win 3 frame before you opponent does.
Snooker: Underdog Win20
Defeat a player of a higher rank in Snooker championship mode 
This achievement will come on the way to “Snooker: Champ Qualification” and is unlocked by beating someone who is ranked higher than you in the world, since you start low down the rankings this will not be hard at all.
Pool Champion20
Win the Pool championship 
Once you have won the semi-final you will again return to the season screen, select next match, this is the final and you will play best of 7 frames meaning you have to win 4 frames before your opponent does.

The format of the tournament is still 4 rounds like any other of the tournaments, but you play best of 3 frames of snooker, best of 3 frames of 9 ball and then best of 3 frames of 8 ball matches.

You will have to pot all 15 reds with any coloured balls and then clear the remaining 6 balls in order in one visit meaning you have to pot 36 balls in a row without missing in Snooker championship mode. This is one of the harder achievements on the game and will take a bit of practice.
Pool: Entire Rack from Break25
Get a run of the entire rack from the break in a 9 ball match 
The 9 ball matches are single matches, there are no tournaments for them. Set up a versus match, 9 ball, with best of 25 frames and when it is your turn to break you must pot a ball from the break, then pot the rest of the balls in numerical order finishing with the 9 ball and the achievement will unlock.
Snooker: Top 16 world ranking30
Get a world ranking of 16 or better in Snooker championship mode 
This is awarded for reaching a ranking above 16, but not until the end of the season. You have to be ranked above 16 after the world snooker championships at the crucible. I got the achievement for “Snooker: Top 16 world ranking”, “Snooker: Top 32 world ranking” and “Snooker: Top 48 world ranking” after my first season for winning every tournament I could enter.
Snooker: Top 8 world ranking40
Get a world ranking of 8 or better in Snooker championship mode 
See “Snooker: Top Of Ranking!” achievement
Snooker: Longevity50
Play through 5 seasons in Snooker championship mode 
This is awarded as soon as you finish your 5th season, you do not have to win any of the championships if you don’t want to, you just have to finish 5 whole seasons. Once you have the other snooker season achievements then I suggest conceding every frame you play and you should be able to fly through the last 3 season in less than an hour.
Trickshot Champion50
Complete all of the trickshots 
The trickshots are available from the main menu by choosing 'Practice' and then trickshots.

There are 15 trickshots and the last one is the only one of any great difficulty. There is a video demo of each one available before you play the shot. It is really handy to do the challenges before you start playing the season mode because you get 1 skill point for every shot completed. You need to complete the first shot before you are able to attempt the next shot.
Snooker: 147 Break50
Score 147 points, or more, in a single visit in Snooker championship mode 
You must get a 147 break, which consists of potting 15 reds and 15 blacks and then the 6 remaining colours in order yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, black in one visit. This is one of the harder achievements on the game and will take a bit of practice.
Snooker: Frame Clearance50
Win all frames of a match in Snooker championship mode 
This requires you to win all the frames in one match so could be 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 etc in Snooker championship mode. When you are in snooker championship mode you start the season by having to qualify for the Shanghai tournament and will have to play 5 qualifying matches which are all best of one frame, win one of the matches and the achievement is yours.
Snooker: All Championships Won50
Win all championships in Snooker championship mode  
The wording of this achievement isn't that clear. You have to win every tournament in a single season, including the Pot Black. The best way to do this is win as many tournaments as you can in your first season and then you will be able to play the pot black tournament in your second season.

During the second season make sure you win every tournament on the calendar and this will unlock. If you are looking like you are going to lose a match you can quit to dashboard and reload then you will just start the that frame again.
Snooker: Top Of Ranking!50
Become number one in the world rankings in Snooker championship mode 
If you win all the tournaments in season 1, and all in season 2 you will be ranked number 1 in the world at the end of season 2 and the achievement will unlock. As with the other ranking achievements, you have to have the ranking at the end of the season.
