in about 5 and a half minutes
you know my typing
as you get £10,000 for highest break and hence Ronnie probably winning £157,000
although, i did miss the 4 on my keyboard
more than 147 anyway? what if the opponant broke first , but spooned it up and fouled somehow but didnt pot a ball, say he hit the pink or sumthin, then player 2 goes and cleans them all up in one break, surley his points would be more than 147 depending which ball player 1 fouled on? hehe
but it's still the highest break possible. It's nothing to do with overall score, just a single break.
technically you could get like, 100000 points
"AND THATS THE 342nd FOUL IN A ROW FROM SULLIVAN MARK!"
the highest break, still id love see sumone score more than 147, i cant recall an occasion when this has happened, although im sure it has
Opponent fouls and snookers at the same time.
You get a free ball - pot a colour as a red, then black, and then 147 from there.
has this ever happened? like in a real game of televised snooker? it seems possibelto me though
Jamie Cope claims to have done it in practice. I also claim to have annally violated his wife in practice though.
(post of all eternity)
Although as you say, the chances are minimal. Becuase the world would explode if it happened.
but DAY CREW CLIQUE STICK TOGETHER, EH?
we'd rather mock some spelling than ask for ball-by-ball internet snooker commentary'.
Ronnie will end up with much more money then whoever wins the title.
O'Sullivan takes the butt of his cue to Ebdon if they play each other. He's the most boring person in the world of snooker, no the world. 5 mins per shot.
The opponent can keep fouling without an upper limit. Not fouling the same attempt at a shot, but fouling after the other player plays a safety shot.
According to a ridiulous hypothetical situation described on wikipedia:
"Hypothetically, a break higher than 155 would be possible if the referee were to pick a red ball out of the pocket and spot  it instead of the coloured ball that had just been potted. This plausibly could occur if the referee mistook the red ball for one of the other coloured balls, most likely the brown. In this case, the colour ball would have to be respotted but the red would be left on the table as a legal red. If this occurred once in a full break that began with a free shot, it would make a 163 break possible; this, however, would have required the referee to mistake a red ball for the black ball. In theory, this could happen more than once in a break, with an extra 8 points available for every referee error. This means infinite breaks are hypothetically possible, although even one mistake is highly unlikely."
thats like saying for a game of football, "the ball hits the side of the net, on theoutside, and the ref gives a goal"
the umpire in a cricket game could call a foul on every ball bowled and THE OVER WOULD NEVER BE OVER. DO YOU SEE?'
the big clock by the finish line was a bit broken, and world records kept getting broken because the "0" came out as a "7"?
that'd make people slower rather than faster.
It's not going to happen pretty much anything could happen hypothetically.
Derby could win the premiership if all the other teams were deducted stupid amounts of points, hypothetically.
I usually watch the snooker but haven't yet, probably because I now work and have less free time to waste.
watching snooker is wasting time.
I like snooker but I wouldn't say I'm a purist, I only watch matches that interest me.
Ronnie beating Hendry terribly 17-4 in the 2004 semi final was my favourite moment in my life ever.
fuck you Hendry.
Also my baby daughter being born on the same day as Jimmy White was also one of those moments *(May2)
God Im sad.
Oh dear Ronnie. I still love you though.
I think we need people like Ron to say such things if only to annoy the out of control poor.
"Obviously it's more important to win the game but that money gives me a few options in the summer. I'll be getting a Bentley Convertible now - I've been dying to get one.
I don't even know if he's white black male or female, but bless.
well that's his nickname anyway. What a crap nickname...
about 4 responses
of courese not
in china ? what else did he say ?
I've missed it no one has made any snooker loopy nuts are we jokes either..
although i'm sure they'll repeat it...
On Fire Maguire appears to be just smouldering embers right now, as my 2nd favourite i sure hope he gets back on it.
Marco 'I Pity The' Fu anyone? not sure if my mate made that up or it is in circulation, either way, it's genius.
Cue and not Fu
i can't really see that new dick of an announcer belting out such an obscure nickname. not in this lifetime. no, not in this cruel world.
At the same time Ronnie makes suggestive motions with his cue at Michaela Tabb.
i've looked. none.
Also why does the new compere look like Bobby Grindrod in his 40s on 60 a day?
Hope 'On Fire' loses badly after that lead and glad small face God boy is out and John 'Stand Laural after a house fire' Higgins has also gone so its looking like a good last 8
What's WRONG with my typing?
they always use 'Robin Hood Of Snooker' these days, like he steals the world standard balls and distributes them amongst the working men's clubs of stapleford and colwick.
of his career.... the commentator said. Surely, the fastest was better, I reckon.
Looking forward to a Wenbo vs. O'Sullivan game hopefully.
