  • Handicaps in snooker

    I have a general question regarding handicaps.

    Shall we say a player is deemed to be a 6 black handicapper, i.e. he has to give a non-handicapper a 6 black start, correspondingly he would only give a 1 black start to a player deemed to be a five black handicapper and so on.

    My question is, using the above as a guide, what sort of break would you expect the 6 black handicapper to CONSISTENTLY achieve in most of the frames played.

    I hope that I have explained myself OK.

    Thanks for any input.

      Well he would only make the last four colours for a 22, but he'll pot long reds off the baulk cushion, miss straight blacks off their spot and put them safe and leave you bridging over five reds, hit every baulk colour with his safeties and put them safe, and if you do catch him up with pink and black left he'll hammer in the game ball better than Trump

                  Not heard this expression before for handicaps, "give 6 blacks", does that mean he gives 42 points (6x7) or 48 points (6x8)?
                  Is it derived from the player (a good player) being able to/is known to pot 6 blacks (on spot) and reds in sequence?

                        I'm in the same boat pottr.

                        If he can pot the last 4 colours he's a golfer? What is he if he gets the last 5? A footballer?

                            Bloke is a 5 black handicap player . So he will get a 35 point start against a scratch player .

                            Question is ........what sort of average break would he achieve on a regular basis .


                            That's the way i interpret it .
