FOUL & MISS RULE:

 

For Qualifying 15 Red Snooker rounds:

·         A player will have to hit the ball if he is snookered (this is mandatory).

·         If a player misses, it will be called a foul & miss and the player who has snookered him, can ask the ball to be replaced. However, there will be a maximum of 3 foul and misses i.e. after 2 re-spots, the third miss will be considered as a foul ‘only’; after which player will have the following options:

1.      Play from where the handball has come to rest

2.      Claim a free ball (if it is one)

3.      Ask the opponent to play again

4.      In case, while attempting to break a snooker and a free ball position comes into existence, there will still be a total of ONLY 3 fouls & a misses i.e. ONLY 2 re-spots. If the third shot to break the snooker fails then it will only be considered a foul. Unless, the player who has given the snooker gets a free ball, pots another ball & then gives a fresh snooker; will be entitled to a new set of foul & miss.

·         Please note that everyone must make a genuine attempt at removing snookers. After 2 attempts at removing snooker a player just cannot play the handball in any direction, which is obvious that he has not made an attempt to remove the snooker. In such a case, he will be penalized with a foul (due points will be given to the opponent) & can be asked to play the shot again (respotting).

. From the main draw there will be unlimited foul n miss.

For Double Elimination qualifying : 6 Red Snooker.

A maximum of 5 foul and misses can be called. That is 4 respots and the after the 5th attempt it will be called a foul.

The player will then have an option to:

1. Play from where the ball has stopped

2. Ask the opponent to play from where the ball has stopped

3. Take ball in hand and put it anywhere on the table and play the next shot.
