Can be fun, but I wonder if this format does not spoil the tactical aspect of snooker. Everything must be fast and there is no time to look for a nice tactical solution. I think it will take away a lot of depth. Snooker will be superficial this way, something we see a lot current days...

Players must hit a cushion (with the cue ball OR the object ball) or pot a ball on every shot.

Players 'lag' for who breaks (winner decides)


This part alone should keep the American 9ball banging cousins happy...youll see :strokeit: :mumum:
