Foul Snooker

Foul Snooker

Hi all

There is a long-running dilemma in our friendship group about a situation that played out playing 8-ball in a pub. The situation was as follows:

1) I foul snookered someone (not knowing about this rule at the time). 2) After reading up about the rules, I accepted the decision. 3) The other player then played his first shot not hitting any other balls. 4) I said that was a foul shot (due to not hitting either the nominated ball or one of his balls) 5) The other players disagreed.

Can anyone clarify the rule here? Does a foul snooker allow you to play a free shot to get around the other ball?

    What is a "foul snooker" and in what country are you playing?

    That basically sums it up. Playing in Australia!
