Free ball situation

Postby vista2004

Hi there.
If a player is awarded a free ball then proceeds to snooker his opponent behind the free ball. Is he then penalized points for a foul shot and is his opponent then awarded a free ball ?

Hi Ken,

That is how I understand it.

Foul - 4 points awarded. The opponent has the choice of taking a free ball or inviting the player to take the shot himself.
