 I think it's 22! 15:02 Sat 06th Jun 2009 Question Author thank you dasherman. 15:24 Sat 06th Jun 2009 I believe the answer is 24, for what it's now worth- although please correct me if I calculated this wrong: Person A pots all the reds on the table, but fails to pot any colours subsequently: Person A now has 15 points (15 x 1 for each red). There are currently 27 points now left available on the table (2+3+4+5+6+7 for each of the colours, yellow through to black.) If person A then pots the yellow, (s)he has 17 points; 25 left on the table. If person A pots the green, (s)he will have 20 points; 22 left on the table. If person A now pots the brown, (s)he will have 24 points; leaving 18 on the table. Thus, 24 points is the minimum I calculate person A to need, presuming that person B doesn't start looking for snookers. 14:36 Thu 11th Jun 2009 The way I worked it out is:- Player A pots 13 reds with no subsequent colours therefore scores 13 points. Player B then pots 2 reds with no subsequent colours and then pots yellow(2),green(3),brown(4),blue(5),pink(6) giving him 22 points. With just the black ball remaining and a snooker needed the game is effectively over. 16:12 Thu 11th Jun 2009 Having done a bit of online research I think the theoretical albeit highly unlikely answer (although endorsed by Steve Davis) is actually 16. Player A pots all 15 reds and the cue ball in one shot,score is therefore Player A 0 - 4 Player B. The colours are then potted in this sequence:- Yellow(2) - Player B Green(3) - Player B Brown(4) - Player A Blue (5) - Player A Pink(6) - Player A Black(7) - Player B Final Score:- Player A 15 - 16 Player B 18:48 Thu 11th Jun 2009
