Except when clearly contradicted by these additional rules, the
General Rules of Carom Billiards apply.
TYPE OF GAME
Is a game which tests player's ability to carom (canon), and sink
balls (play a winner). The game stresses cue ball and object
ball control, over all three balls, in order to achieve large breaks.
Two individuals, or two teams.
Two cue balls, marked differently so as to be distinguishable from one
another, and a red ball. The table is a snooker table (no smaller than
5' by 10').
OBJECT OF THE GAME
To reach a predetermined point count before your opponent.
Points can be scored in the following manners.
Each of the above is worth one point. It is possible to get two points
on a stroke by combining a canon and a winner. If a loser is combined
with either a canon or a winner the player's turn is over (no penalty is
imposed though) -- the stroke does not result in a legal count.
Player's lag to determine who starts the game. The game is started out
of the "D" by the breaker, with only his cue and the red ball on the
table (the second player removes his cue from the table for the
breaker's first inning). The red-ball starts on the 7-spot.
RULES OF PLAY
A legal counting stroke entitles the shooter to continue at the
table until he fails to legally count.
The second player starts the game by accepting the balls in the position they came to rest at when the first player's inning ended. The second player must start from the "D".
Subsequent innings start with the player's accepting the balls in the
positions they came to rest at when the previous player ended his
ILLEGALLY POTTED BALL
The red ball is spotted on the 7-spot. The opponent's cue ball will be
put in play, by the opponent, from the "D". (Note: potting the
opponent's cue ball ends the shooter's inning.)
JUMPED OBJECT BALL
If it is the red ball it is spotted on the 7-spot. If it is the
opponent's cue ball it is spotted on the 4-spot. A foul is assessed for
the ball having left the bed of the table.
CUE BALL AFTER JUMP OR SCRATCH
The ball is spotted on the 5-spot, and a penalty is assessed for the
ball having left the bed of the table.
PENALTIES FOR FOULS
One point will be deducted from the offender's score for each
foul, and his inning is over.
