A recent development in snooker betting is the ability for a wager to be made on which player in a particular match will pocket any individual coloured ball. In each snooker match, every frame includes six coloured balls. They are yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, and black. Each of these balls has a set value. The yellow ball has a value of 2 points, the green ball represents 3 points, the brown is valued at 4, the blue is valued at 5, pink is worth 6 and black is worth 7.
When a player pockets a red ball, the next ball that is to be targeted is the coloured ball that has the lowest value. Snooker betting that involves coloured balls can be done in compliment to other bets including frame and match bets. This type of strategy can allow you to maximize your profits, especially if you have a good feeling about a particular match.
In live running bet situations, a coloured ball bet can be placed at any time before the forthcoming frame. These bets are usually low paying, usually below 1:1. If a particular player goes on a run, it can result in a good payoff for a bettor. In the case that a player runs the table for a maximum, a coloured ball bet can add quite a bit to the take.
While coloured ball betting does not offer the giant payoff that an outcome bet can, it can allow over 50 bets per match. This snooker betting technique is for those who like to have bets on every single shot. It is a high action betting strategy and is not for the faint of heart. These bets are more luck based than match and outcome bets and are for those who are more adventurous in their bets.
