Snooker Foul When Missed Hitting the Red Ball


Snooker Foul When Missed Hitting the Red Ball

Last night I had a debate with a player I was playing against. The situation was as follows.

The player was on a red ball. The player missed the red ball and hit the yellow ball, thus giving away a 4 point foul. However, the yellow ball he had hit continued on, struck the blue ball, and potted it.

Is this just a 4 point foul for hitting the yellow first, or is this a 5 point foul for also potting the blue and causing it to have to be re-spotted?

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    I believe it is a 5 point foul. Generally, in situations like this, the player committing the foul must take the greater point value.
