THE MISS RULE
14/10/2008
ABERDARE VALLEY “COORS” SNOOKER LEAGUE

THE MISS RULE

"A miss is called if the referee thinks a player has not made a good enough attempt at striking a ball,"

"The striker shall, to the best of his ability, endeavour to hit the ball on."
The exceptions? The miss rule is not applied if the black ball is the only remaining ball on the table, or a situation exists where it is impossible to hit the ball on.

In the latter case, the rule continues: "It must be assumed the striker is attempting to hit the ball on provided that he plays, directly or indirectly, in the direction of the ball on with sufficient strength, in the referee's opinion, to have reached the ball on."

(OUR LEAGUE ONLY)
Up to three (3) misses will be called at one time, after putting the ball back, and after the third miss, the player can make his opponent go again from where the ball finished up, or, go himself.

This rule does not apply in finals and semi-finals, or when a qualified referee is present.
