Definition of Snooze You Lose

Snooze You Lose is a billiards slang term that is a part of Scoring Terminology.

An unforgiving style of scoring whereby if a player's owed scratch penalty is forgotten at the time that player makes a legitimate ball, the scratch penalty is voided. Alternatively, on a table with ball returns, a ball or more that goes legally in one player's pocket, but that player forgets to remove them from the gully tray and place them in their particular score keeping area, so that they might become confused with balls the next player scores, thus giving the second player credit for extra balls. Note that this is not generally a gentleman's style of play, and a good illustration of the need to clarify rules before starting a game with an unfamiliar opponent.
