  • Types of snooker (the verb not the noun)

    Hello everyone,

    I have a question about the different types of snookers that exist – and one in particular. I'm not certain if they all have names but I've tried really hard to Google an answer to this but I think the problem is the noun vs verb issue.

    Anyway, to make my question easier I have created a very crude image of what I mean in the one particular example. In this example imagine that you approach the table and are on the final red, what I've tried to show is that the cue ball has been left in such a position that you can't actually hit the red ball directly. What is this snooker called?



    Myself and my friends have always (seemingly wrongly) referred to this as a 'Chinese snooker', however after some googling (and sifting through endless photos of Ding Junhui) I understand this to be a Chinese snooker (where your bridge arm has to be higher up to get over a ball very close to it):



    So my question is; what is the first one called?

    Are there other types of snookers that have names?

    I'd say in the first one you're "knuckled" but some people say "angled"

      We call it "angled" around my clubs

        angled yes, jawed as well but jawed also could mean a pot that did not drop but hit the angle and left over the jaw

              Maybe it's a Scottish thing.

                          Oh yeah the suicidal ones - I stand corrected three types

                          Them types of bad run shots can hurt the most.

                              The optical illusion snooker.
                              This comes in two forms, first when your not sure you can see a ball, past another, it looks really tight, go for it and you could get a bus through the gap.
                              Second ,convinced you can see the ball past another , go for it and hit the blocking ball in such a way that there was never a gap there to go for.
                              I hope that's not just me lol, my eyes are quite bad.
