What is a free ball in snooker?

A free ball in snooker is a ball that is elected by the incoming player to take the place of a ball that is legal to shoot, or "on".

The reason for this election is that the opponent fouled, and left the incoming player "snookered" on every ball on.

The free ball can be any ball on the table, and will be scored with the value of the ball it replaces. Any colored ball pocketed as a free ball will be respotted as usual.

only the first two strikes and on the third if catcher does not catch the ball then player can run to first trying to beat a through

It sounds like what you are describing is a foul tip. MLB rule 2.00 defines a foul tip as follows:

" A FOUL TIP is a batted ball that goes sharp and direct from the bat to the catcher's hands and is legally caught. It is not a foul tip unless caught and any foul tip that is caught is a strike, and the ball is in play. It is not a catch if it is a rebound, unless the ball has first touched the catcher's glove or hand. "

What is the difference between billiards pool and snooker?

All three are different kinds of cue games: Billiards, Pool, and snooker.

Billiard tables have larger pockets and use slightly larger balls than snooker. Other than that the tables are very similar in size and design. The smaller snooker balls are red, and yellow with white cue balls. They are not numbered like billiard balls and the game is entirely different than say 8 or 9 ball played in the USA. A billiard table can be converted to snooker because you can make the holes smaller to accommodate the snooker balls, but not vice-versa.

In snooker you keep score and after all the balls are potted it is the one with the highest score that wins. 147 is the maximum score but theoretically 155 is possible. With billiards an infinite score is theoretically possible. In pool it is ho pots all their balls and the black first that wins.

What is the highest break in snooker ever made?

AnswerThe highest snooker break possible without the benefit of an opponent's foul is 147 (15 reds, 15 blacks and then the six colours). This is known as a maximum break. It is also regularly known as simply a 'One-Four-Seven'.

The highest snooker break possible with the benefit of an opponent's foul is 155 (1 free ball, 1 Black, 15 reds, 15 blacks and then the six colours).

Ronnie O'Sullivan holds the record for the most maximums in official competition, having made ten. The first televised 147 was by Steve Davis. The youngest televised 147-breaker is Ding Junhui who at the time was 19 years old. Ding broke the record in the Masters Tournament 2007. The record for a single session is held by Adrian Gunnell who made three 147 breaks in four frames during a practice session in Telford in 2003. On 13 March 2007, Ronnie O'Sullivan made two maximum breaks against local players during an exhibition match in Cornwall. Peter Ebdon made maximum breaks in consecutive frames during an exhibition match in Bournemouth against Steve Davis in 2000. Ken Doherty is so far the only player to have had a televised final black miss on a 147 attempt, at the 2000 Masters final.

At least three breaks in excess of 147 have been recorded. A 149 by Tony Drago in West Norwood, UK in 1998 is recorded by the Guinness Book of Records as the highest. In that match Drago was foul snookered and chose the brown as the free ball, to score one point. He then potted the brown again, for four more points, before potting 13 reds and 13 blacks, a red and a pink, a red and a blue, then all the colours. In October 2004, during qualifying for the UK Championship, Jamie Burnett achieved a 148 against Leo Fernandez, becoming the first player to achieve a break of more than 147 in a professional match.

Wally West was reported to have made a 151 break in the final of a club competition in Hounslow in 1976. Jamie Cope was reported to have made a break of 155 in a practice frame during 2005.

Can you lose weight by playing snooker?

It's better than sitting and watching tv, though you still probably only burn around 100-150 calories per hour. What you eat (or don't eat) is just as important in weight loss.
