Snooker Rules

1.  A snooker match is deemed to have started with the break for the first frame. Unless otherwise stated, all bets will stand providing that the initial break has been taken at the beginning of the match. The winner of the match is the player who progresses to the next round or is deemed the winner by the governing body.

2. If a player fails to start a tournament or match, all bets on that player, or individual match, will be void.

3. Once a player has started playing in a tournament, bets will stand on them for outright tournament betting purposes. If they then withdraw for any reason outright bets will be settled as losers.

4.  Next Frame Which player will win the next frame? If the frame does not take place all bets will be void, except in the event of the award of a frame for any reason in which case bets will stand.
