    9- What is the highest number of points that can theoretically be scored in a single shot? you gonna have to explain your answer . ( just a number is not good enough )


    10- With only the last 7 colours remaining, player A has fouled and left player B snookered on the yellow. So he nominates the blue as a free ball. After potting the blue, the white rolls into the yellow and knocks it in too. What is the outcome?

    Foul 7 penalty points awarded to the non-offending player.

    Player B (now with 3 points lead) has the choice to play or ask the offending player to play again either from where the balls lie or have the balls replaced.
    "Expected" to happen? - Player B plays the black.
    wrong answer
    Player B wins

    16 - all reds and a free ball potted in a single legal shot.
    [edit - as per Ramon request - I really do not like thes theoretical impossible type questions ]

    Player B scores 2 points, Blue respotted, yellow stays off the table, Player B continues their turn to the ball on - Green.

    I think you could be in there now Dean, all looks pretty good to me. I might be offering you a tenner for a blue diamond! ; ) ( I'm sure Ramon will have a trick up his sleeve before we get to the bottom of this lot though! )
