Snooker

Watching the recent Irish and British snooker championships it seems that the girl attending the table, placing the balls and announcing the score number is never in sync with the score displayed on the screen. Is she counting something different than the total running match score? Pete :cheers:

If I understand you correctly...

The referee calls the score for the break in progress rather than the total score for the frame. So each time the player goes to the table, the break score is zero even if the player's total score for the frame so far is (for example) 53.

^ Got it, thanks. I knew there had to be a difference. I didn't know she went back to zero. Pete :cheers:

The trial and error associated with the above before it was perfected took weeks I would imagine.

World Championship 2017: Mark Selby will play John Higgins in final

"English world number one Selby reached the showpiece for the third time in four years by holding off Ding Junhui 17-15 in a gripping encounter.

And Scotland's Higgins joined him by winning the solitary frame of the final session to beat Barry Hawkins 17-8."....
