The word seems to be a yellow and green
with some parts missing. A couple of the missing parts could have been caused by cutting off a very specific shape, and that shape would fit the other spots too:
It appears to be the word
But since the vertical lines are removed it leads me to think that perhaps it is a
However, given that the poster indicated that the answer is a single word, and given that one smart contributer showed that perhaps the missing sections are
Then a quick Google search on the three leads me to
And so the part of that answer that ...
If we take this pattern as a part of a bigger and complete pattern with a well defined rule, then this makes sense:
It is a complete palindrome-like pattern with "mirrored" operations (add-change-add- change-change-remove-change-remove). It eliminates the obscurity how to add white spheres after item 5. It involves operations that have already been used, so ...
The pattern appears to build up, adding dots and colors, leaving the sequence "full" at the fifth square, with no room to add anything after that, so you could make an arbitrary choice as to what happens next, such as:
Not really an answer but (too large to fit in a comment and) may save others some scutwork: OP says that "the lack of a text transcription is intentional" but if this puzzle is mostly about looking up RGB colours on the internet then that is No Fun and I'd like to save other people the bother.
Of course it may turn out that none of this has anything to do ...
First, let's divide the $5$ cells like this:
If you observe the colored cells (the non-black cells) upside-down:
The next thing is that, the $5$ cells are actually representing the binary. With black cell denoting $0$ and colored cells denoting $1$. (This refers to hint 2b.) But, it's not a regular binary. It's:
So, if we evaluate the numbers:
Yep, you ...
Partial Answer: I'm not getting far with this. But i think it could be:
This is probably nonesense but I think I can see:
Below are my "workings". I fear I am also barking up the wrong tree, especially since I cant see any further patterns...
So basically my answer was almost a complete guess :)
This is not a full solution. It is brainstorming that others might be able to use.. if I come up with a solution that meets all requirements I will delete this comment and append the solution to the bottom.
Let's first look at the solution posted by Alexander Fasching.
Therefore I am thinking there must be another solution..
That being said, what if we ...
The answer is
The diagram below shows the path of the shot. The diagram is made from flipping and inverting the snooker table at boundaries such that all paths would be straight lines.
Here is the path on the table by itself
