Kaizo snooker

Snooker is a lot more difficult than pool in terms of potting the ball but in terms of positional play there is a lot more options making it easier in that respect (initially 15 reds, 6 colors to choose from after a red).

Unfortunatily its now getting too easy for the top players to score a single winning break from the start so we need to crank up the difficulty to make it interesting again.

You are only allowed to pot a black after potting red (and no other color).

after potting yellow (and no other color) you are only allowed to pot a pink, green xor blue. You have to nominate a color first.

After potting at least one yellow and at least one red ball you are only allowed to pot brown balls.

The final balls are potted in the order brown, green, brown, blue, pink, black.

Maximum break
The theoretical maximum is 547

12 reds and 3 yellows 270
2 brown balls 240
2 brown balls 16
1 green ball 3
1 blue ball 5
1 pink ball 6
1 blak ball 7

The highest score you can get without potting more than one ball at once is 149

Replacing the miss rule
If you fail to hit the object ball first your opponents will have the following options

0. move one ball (can be the cue-ball) to a new position and play from there.
1. Force you to play again from the new position

If you go for 0 there would be the following restrictions
  • You cannot put the cue-ball so its touching another ball.
  • A non-cue ball has to have a certain distance from the long edges and all other balls.

Enough of that nonsense.

Sure maybe having 3 chances to pot the ball would be fair but this is kaizo so you will only get one chance to escape the snooker obviously.

Potting multiple balls
If no red/yellow ball was potted the previous shot one player will be awarded:

score = {the total value of the balls potted} * {the number of balls potted in the shot}

If at least one yellow/red ball was potted the previous pot one player will be awarded:

score = {the total value of the balls potted} * {the number of balls potted in the shot} * {the number of balls potted the previous pot}

Of course if you make a foul then all these points will instead be awarded to your opponent.

Making potting more difficult
The game above would of course be really hard (especially when you need to pot more than one ball to win without snooker) but it would not really be any harder than doing a 147 which many players have done.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_break

Instead of you being supposed to pot the ball you have to hit first with the cue-ball you will instead be supposed to hit pot one of the balls you are not allowed to first hit with the cue-ball.

At the first shot you will have to hit a red first and that will not be enough to avoid a foul, you will also make sure to put a color or have a color touch an edge (to avoid minor foul).

After potting a color you will then go on to pot the reds but from there you will instead have to first hit a color first.

Points for each ball same as snooker except the red balls will be 8 points each. A foul will be 4 points unless any ball (that wasn't the cue-ball) was potted).

Points = {the total value of the balls potted} * {number of balls potted}

The game is over once the final red is potted, reds will never be put back after being potted so if you have big enough lead you can pot the final red via a foul giving your opponent 8 points (if you lead by more than 8 points).

Having to pot the reds in a certain order
Actually you will be allowed to pot any red ball but if you fail to pot they signature red you will be limited to only playing for brown (2 points) or black (5 points).

You can only play for black or brown after potting a red when there was only one red left at the table, then however black will give you 7 points and brown will give you 4 points.

The amount of points you get for potting a color will be multiplied with the number of reds you potted previously. Lets say you potted the final 3 reds, that will give you 9 points, if you then go ahead and pot the pink you will get another 18 points (unless you make a foul).

Colorball
The colors are potted in the same order as normal snooker if the number of balls left of these colors are equal, otherwise you will just pot the most numerous color. Thus you will play yellow to green to brown to blue to pink and then yellow again and continue like that until all balls are potted or your opponent concedes (unless you pot more than one which can change the order you pot in).

Instead of having each color have a fixed value the value of each ball will be equal to the number of balls potted in that pot unless a color is cleared. Clearing a color means potting all remaining balls of that color and that will double the amounts of points awarded for the pot.

So if you pot the final 2 blue you will get double the points for clearing a color and which will give you a total of 8 points (4 points per ball). If you pot 3 yellow balls when there was 5 on the table you will get 9 points (3 points per ball).

But if you pot any ball of another color than you were supposed to pot these points will instead get rewarded to your opponent. The balls illegally potted will then be put back on the table.

Foul and severe foul
At least one ball must be potted or touch the cushion (unless there are less than 6 of the object ball), otherwise the opponent will be awarded one point (ordinary foul). Potting a ball (or several) you were not supposed to pot is also an ordinary foul which will give your opponent at least one point.

Accidentally touching a ball is an ordinary foul if it doesn't affect the outcome of the shot, otherwise it's a severe foul.

Consequences of severe foul
If you commit a severe foul your opponent will be allowed to force you to place again or move one ball at the table to a new location, said new location cannot be too close to the long side (unless it's the cue-ball being moved) and it cannot be the too close to some other ball.

Failing to hit the object ball first will be a a foul and a miss or severe foul, the players can be allowed more than one chance such as having severe foul after missing 3 times in a row and allowed the balls to be put back twice to the same location.

Black ball decider
If the the opponents are tied after the last ball is potted a black ball will be placed at one of the single brown spots (the one to the right if available. During a black ball decided any foul will result in you losing the frame immediately (even if it is jus minor foul).

Single frame format
The winner of the last frame will break the next frame unless it's a frame to win the match in which case your opponent will break, the amount of frames will be extended (such as by 4) if it ends in a draw (such as 8 vs 8) where the player to break will be the first one to be one frame short of winning (such as winning 8 frames out of 16).

Double frame format
The points of the first frame will carry over to the next, each player will break once in total for these 2 joint frames.

Colorball with black
16 black balls are added so you will pot balls in the order (yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, black) 16 times, this is even harder than ordinary colorball which in tern is a lot harder than standard snooker.

1616531187782.png

If a ball is potted when it shouldn't be it will be put back to one of the black ball spots (if available), otherwise the ball can be put anywhere in the area enclosed by 8 black ball spots if the cue-ball isn't there.

Colorball strategy
Often it will be possible to play safe while still attempting the pot since unlike snooker your next color will never be the color your opponent will play for in the case you miss.

If you need a double to win without snookers you can work towards setting that up getting a ball close to a pocket so it will be easy to pot while also potting another ball of said color.

It's extra important to be careful not to accidentily pot an extra ball of the wrong color since going so will prevent you from continuing the break and your opponent will be awarded at least 4 points (if you also make the intended pot). It's even worse if you accidentily pot the last ball of a color since that will double the amount of points so your opponent will get 16 points if you also pot the last ball of the intended color.

The extended ball in hand rule (where you will be allowed to move any ball to a new position after a foul) can be used to set up a double giving you more points (4 or 8 instead of just 1).

Reduced version (5 colors)
Here brown is the first color to be potted but after that it's standard (yellow, green, brown, blue, pink) order.

Detailed scoring table (colorball)
These figures can be optained using the formula

points = 2^{the number of colors cleared} * {number of balls potted}²

CC = color cleared:

Code:
Balls potted   points (0 CC)    points (1 CC)    Points (2 CC)    points(3 CC)   Points(4 CC)   points(5 CC)   Points(6 CC)    points(7 CC)    Points(8 CC)    points(9 CC)    points(10 CC)    points(11 CC)    Points(12 CC)    points(13 CC)    Points(14 CC)    points(15 CC)    Points(16 CC)    points(17 CC)    Points(18 CC)    points(19 CC)

Eliminating/reducing the break advantage (colorball)
Lets say you have 7 blue balls and 5 green balls, in that case (if only one ball is potted at once) the potting order will be (blue, blue, green, blue, green, blue, green, blue, green, blue, green, blue) so you would initialy play for blue twice.

Let's say the blue you are attempting is difficult, in that case putting effort into getting into position to the next blue might not actually be beneficial since if you miss you end up giving your opponent a good opening to start potting, is that a bad thing?

But there is another option, let's simply have a rule stating that you will not keep playing if the color you are supposed to pot remains the same, in that case you will have to make a double (potting 2 blue balls) to keep playing and otherwise your opponent will take over. In that scenario the easiest way to get into potting will be to pot a ball and lay a snooker at the same time, then you will get right back into it if your opponent fails to hit the object ball and have the resulting position be safe.

How many chances should you have to hit the object ball?
Best policy might be to allow 3 chances if there are only one ball of the object color but otherwise you will only have one chance. You can put your opponent back twice to the same position.

That means you can get up to 3 points from a single snooker when there are only one ball left of each remaining color.

First break determination
Both players will play the cue-ball across the table and back again to get as close as the cushion as possible. Your opponent will decide who does the first break if you hit the side cushion or get the cue-ball to your opponents side of the table or fail to reach the cushion you are supposed to bounce from, if both fail to make a proper shot the player whose cue-ball who travelled the longest legally will decide who does the first break.

Something similar is already being used for pool and "snooker shootout".

What a colorball match can look like
Here you only have one chance to hit a yellow and pot the ball or get the cueball safe.
