OLD RULE – SECTION 2

A free ball is a ball which the striker nominates as the ball on when snookered after a foul (see Section 3 Rule 12).

 

NEW RULE – SECTION 2

OLD RULE – SECTION  2

14.    Forced Off the Table

A ball is forced off the table if it comes to rest other than on the bed of the table or in a pocket, or if it is picked up by the striker, or intentionally moved by hand, whilst it is in play except as provided for in Section 3 Rule 14(h).

 

NEW RULE – SECTION 2

14. Forced off the table

A ball is forced off the table if it comes to rest other than on the bed of the table or in a pocket, or if it is picked up by the striker, or intentionally moved by hand whilst it is in play except as provided for in Section 3 Rule 14(g).

                  

NEW RULE – SECTION 3

10. Penalties.

 

(d) seven points if the striker:

(i) uses a ball off the table for any purpose;

(ii) uses any object to measure gaps or distance;

(iii) touches any ball during consultation as described in Section 3, Rule 14(g)

(iv) plays at Reds, or a free ball followed by a Red, in successive strokes;

(v) uses any ball other than White as the cue-ball for any stroke after the frame has started;

(vi) fails to declare which ball he is on when snookered or when requested to do so by the referee; or

(vii) after potting a Red (or free ball nominated as a Red), commits a foul before a colour has been nominated.

 

NEW RULE – SECTION 3

14. Foul and a Miss

(a) The striker shall, to the best of his ability, endeavour to hit the ball on or a ball that could be on after a Red has been potted. If the referee considers the Rule infringed, he shall call FOUL AND A MISS unless:

(i) any player needed penalty points before, or as a result of, the stroke being played;

(ii) before or after the stroke, the points available on the table are equal to the points difference excluding the value of the re-spotted black; and the referee is satisfied that the miss was not intentional.

(iii) a situation exists where it is impossible to hit the ball on.

In the latter case it must be assumed the striker is attempting to hit the ball on provided that he plays, directly or indirectly, at the ball on with sufficient strength, in the referees opinion, to have reached the ball on but for the obstructing ball or balls.

(b) After a FOUL AND A MISS has been called, the next player may request the offender to play again from the position left, or at his discretion, from the original position, with all balls being replaced, in which latter case the ball on shall be the same as it was prior to the last stroke made, namely:

(i) Any Red, where Red was the ball on;

(ii) the colour on, where all Reds were off the table; or

(iii) a colour of the striker’s choice, where the ball on was a colour after a Red had been potted.

(c) If the striker, in making a stroke, fails to first hit a ball on when there is a clear path in a straight line from the cue-ball to any part of any ball that is or could be on, the referee shall always call FOUL AND A MISS unless as described under paragraph (a)(i) and (a)(ii).

(d) After a miss has been called under paragraph (c) above when there was a clear path in a straight line from the cue-ball to a ball that was on or could have been on, such that central, full ball, contact was available (in the case of Reds, this to be taken as a full diameter of any Red that is not obstructed by a colour), then:

(i) a further failure to first hit a ball on in making a stroke from the original position shall be called as a FOUL AND A MISS regardless of the difference in scores;

(ii) if asked to play again from the original position, the offender shall be warned by the referee that a third failure will result in the frame being
