    What’s important is how close? the red is to the yellow… Looking at it from here the guy plays the right shot. A pro would always take this route, but if someone was a little less proficient then I could understand if they wanted to open the black up.

    Beware tho, position of the White afterwards very important as you want to make sure the opponent cannot get the White to bounce off the bottom cushion and flick the red out. Giving him a chance he wouldn’t otherwise have had.

    Not at all. If that is your odds calculation, then you need work on your Maths as well as your English.

    Why did? he take more than a second to tap them in? Why would you play the black first????

    I am pretty sure you can in this situation as no matter where you place the white, you will? always the foul snookered. As Yellows you can claim foul snooker, nominate the red as your ball, hit it in then pot the black with your 2 shots….

    In World Rules Pool which is what they are playing, after a foul? you can either nominate one of the opponents balls to hit or pot or pick up the white and place it behind the line. You can’t do both ie pick up the white and take a free ball as well.

    he should have knocked the black to the middle of the table and given him 2 visits, hopefully with cue ball tight on? furthest cushion. Then either let him try to get his out, if he fails you probably be able to call foul snooker and dish up with 2 shots.
    Piece of piss!!!

    For me, it all depends? on whether you could fit the cueball in the gap between baulk cushion and yellow. If not, then I would have picked up the cue ball and placed it a foot directly behind the red, claimed the red as a free ball and screwed back to bottom cushion for the black.

    Anyone agree?

    Haha – I recognised you as St Andrew’s immediately before I read the tag! I’ve played for Kent the last couple of years.

    Stu actually gets lucky in this shot because he clips edge of red, then yellow and then the cueball? is pushed across the table by the red coming back from the near cushion.

    thats how we play at my uni, it does makes sense and stops your? opp being a dick

    St Andrews Uni plays World Rules, as does the British Universities Pool Association, so the key points to note are:
    1. There is no such thing as an unhittable ball. No matter what shot you’re left with, you can hit the cueball into any other ball, even potting your opponent’s ball (though if? you don’t hit your own, it’s a foul).
    In this video, Stu had the upper hand, as Andy will find it very difficult to pot his ball without potting Stu’s, which is a foul.

    The way its played at uni here is 2 shots on the black, but also 2 shots don’t carry meaning that if you pott the first time and miss the second, its still the opps shot (but if you miss the? first you still get another shot).

    if you ‘foul? snookered’ him, that rule comes into effect. so if you roll the white to a position on the table where your opponent is snookered (therefore fouling and giving him two shots), then he can nominate free ball and play one of your colours in a plant.

    another option he had, if i saw that right, was to move the white anywhere behind the line and have two shots from there

    i like world rules, personally
