Total Snookered
Hullboy
Coming to Blackball from a long time playing World rules , i was wondering , can you be total snookered by the cushion as you couldn't in world rules ....ie if the cushion wasn't there could you clip an edge of a ball on
 
Nippa
5g SNOOKERS
A player is in a snooker when it is impossible to hit any
part of any ball ‘on’ by way of a straight line shot. In this
situation the player need only cause the cue ball to
contact a ball ‘on’, to execute a legal shot.
A player does not have to pot a ball or cause the cue
ball or another ball to contact a cushion once he has
escaped from the snooker.
The player should seek confirmation from his/her
opponent, referee or other tournament official if
needed.

OK so I have made a number of calls to clarify the ruling on this one. two of the most senior referees in Blackball.

Mel Harley & John Attridge

It is not the same as World Rules.

Mel & John gave me exactly the same ruling that I posted firstly ( 5G Snookers)

if you cannot hit your own object ball by way of a straight line then its a total snooker cushions are not excluded like in World Rules.

The same rule applies if the cue ball or your object ball is in the Jaws of the pocket its a total snooker.

hope that helps you and if there are any other rules you need clarification on then go to downloads at the top links, there is a download of the full description of the rules but if you still

cannot get the answer please do not hesitate to contact me

Thankyou
Just a situation that came up at a county game & all i could contribute was " i have no idea really , we'll just call it a total or it turns into a circus "
