    A Ball-on is not snookered by another ball-on OR a cushion.

    Note:- For non Scottish members "cannae" means "cannot". Lol.
    yep, heard that one before, but I think it was a Brummie accent

    This has been asked a few times through the years
    When considering whether a Free ball exists with more than one Red on the table and ball-on; EACH red is considered on its OWN, as if it is the only Red on the table; and if ANY Red is NOT snookered by a colour, then no Free Ball.

    Now, your scenario, with the pyramid of Reds undisturbed then the Free Ball must be considered from where the cue ball lies; each Red considered on its own.
    IF you are playing from In-Hand (i.e. the cue ball went into a pocket) the two outside base reds are not snookered so a Free Ball does not exist.

    for further info see the great posts starting with this one:

    Free Ball Or Not?

    If your opponent breaks off, misses all the reds, gives you a foul 4 points, and leaves the white so you can hit the reds, is this a free ball or not as you can't hit both sides of any of the reds as the pack hasn't been opened?
