True although once destiny got 7 Arc Snookers on me to win a frame.

Agreed.

What James says is right. 5 snookers is difficult but not impossible. The cut-off doesnt have to be around 20 tho cause basically any number would solve the problem of people constantly fouling deliberately.
In fact, some people play on even when their opponent just made an 80 break, just to pot a few balls to get going (especially in the 1st game when you play a longer match).
I think they have the right to do that in ranked/friendly games. Its allowed in real snooker too, so maybe the cut-off should be much higher.

Btw, well done and congrats on becoming a mod James

Happened to me a few days ago in Topsy arcade tournament. Played for about an hour to get to final. Was ahead in final and played a snooker and the idiot tapped out and hit nothing to leave nothing on and he typed a few lol messages so i just let him win.
Same player has done it a few times aswell as others.

Best way to sort this problem out is ball in hand free place anywhere after each foul. (Like in 9-ball pool). It would stop all the cheating on here and also people timing you out in tournaments.
Its not a snooker rule but the miss rule is a rule to stop deliberate fouls but the miss rule is impossible to use on here so ball in hand would be an easy way to sort out this cheating problem

Not an official rule pal, the normal way would be to do like Real Snooker and ask if you want them to retake the shot, them from where it landed or you play but can't do that.
