    If a player goes out of turn, and nobody raises the issue, the offense is "condoned" and there is no penalty as long as a foul is not called while the player is still playing.

    Have a look here and see if any of this help you:

    When a player plays out of turn in a pairs match and, say, makes a break, does that stand until it’s noticed that he’s played out of turn? What foul is incurred when it is noticed?

    When a player plays out turn in 4-handed snooker, if and when it is noticed, a foul will be called. As with any foul, the break up to the point before foul was called will be awarded, but nothing for the stroke where foul is called.

    For example, if the starting order is A B C D, but then B comes to the table again after C (instead of player D) and makes a break of, say, 16 and then a foul is called.

    Team BD will have 16 points added, and team AC will have the appropriate points added to their score (the penalty being the value of the ball on when the foul was called).
