Personality, Game, and Term Puzzle (Posted on 2022-09-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The name of a very famous personality in history has precisely 5 letters in the first name, and exactly 4 letters in the last.

An anagram of the letters in this person's last name spells out the name of a game and the letters in the first name can be rearranged to spell out a term used in this game.

Determine the full name of this personality. What is the name of the game and the term used in it?

**** Adapted from a problem appearing in NPR's Sunday Puzzle in 2005.

Carom:  A shot in billiards in which the cue ball contacts one object ball and then the other.  And an anagram of Marco

Pool: a game, and an anagram of Polo

And billiards is a subset of "Pool".

Marco Polo
