HAMILTON,New Zealand--English-born Singaporean billiards master Peter Gilchrist has set a new world record break in Hamilton. On the first day of the New Zealand Open Billiards Championships at the Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club yesterday, he shot a break of 1346, easily surpassing the previous world record of 1246.
In English Billiards, the maximum is 10 points. In pocket billiards, there is no such thing as score, although the game can be won, or lost, in 1 shot in some games.
The highest score available in a single shot is a score of 10.
A faulty billiards shot is called a "miscue"
there are no points in a billiards game. Do you by any chance reffer to pocketing two red balls at the same shot in a SNOOKER game? In that case you get two points and an extra shot.
It is possible to get a higher score than 147 but that is the highest break possible. A foul shot from your opponent in which you are awarded points is technically not part of your break.
You cannot; the highest you can score is a 3-pointer.
In English Billiards, a cannon is a shot that hits both the red ball and the players cue ball in the same shot. This shot scores 2 points. The cannon does not exist in pocket billiards.
In English Billiards the maximum is 10.
Scoring is not an issue in pool, therefore there is no "highest" break. In that particular form of billiards, the break is the action of taking the first shot and splitting up the racked bals. You may be confused with snooker: in this, the highest break possible is 147 points (all reds with blacks, then all colours).
An anchor shot is a billiards shot made with the object balls in an anchor space.
[15 if you managed to pot every red on the table in one shot.] Actually it's 16 if you start with a free ball and all 15 reds on the table!
