Quiz question... What's the lowest possible theoretical frame winning score in Snooker? ...... (all balls potted)... and explain how you achieved that number!! Not in a break and can be in any legal shot configuration)

15 reds with no colours. You'd then need yellow, green and brown to leave your opponent needing snookers. They pot blue, pink and black you have 22-18.

Feels too easy answer to be right...yours are always trick questions!

Assuming no fouls (points deductions)
22

If you pot the reds without potting a colour after, there is a max of 42 points on the table. To avoid a draw someone has to be on 22 and someone on 20

7-0

A bit of 'Blue sky' .............

One shot and all the balls sunk - penalty points of highest ball - lose 7-0.

Crikey didn't know that's how snooker scored with a white down on the reds!

Google tells me you can get a lower total score if you don't need all balls potted :
0-4 those 15 reds potted and the white too
2-4 Yellow
5-4 Green
5-8 Brown
10-8 Blue
16-8 Pink

At 16-8 Black doesn't need to be potted as frame is won

But this specific question needed all balls potted though! ;)

If you don't need all balls potted, you can get a score of 0-0. But, only in the snooker shootout.
