Chucking a dart nine times or manouevring a ball onto other balls around a large table for 36 precise times.

Hmm :^0

Defo 9 dart

9 darter is much harder statistically & therefore in reality.

147s are far more frequent, so they must be easier.

See previous threads that pop up annually when the fat lardies step up to the oche. Snooker has class, something darts will never have.

9 darter. No flukes, you have to be precise, you can't play to areas for a choice of reds etc. Both take skill though, no need to get defensive because you prefer one game over the other.
Report snooker backer December 21, 2009 6:12 PM GMT
I suppose you're right. It's just this one gets done to death every year. They both take skill, no doubt about that. I played snooker for 7 years before I had a 147 and took a long time to get another one. My brother has had loads of ten darters and one nine darter and he's a decent club player. If some one can hit 180 on a regular basis they should get a nine darter eventually, if someone can pot a red, black, red, black and not lose position they could die before making a 147. Terry Griffiths has never made one, even in practice and he's a world champion.

A friend of mine has had a hole in one at a decent par three links hole in the wind and he plays off around 15. I think it's safe to say he won't do it again....

SB i am totally oblivious to any previous threads on this subject ...there was a party and the subject came up and i was asked to ask this question because two people had different views and so i obliged but go out for a long walk will you and get rid of that inner vitriol that so many forumites seem to have. that was my first ever post on snooker forum and this will be my last. you've left a bad taste in the mouth sir.

hole in one def the easiest, anyone can hit a good tee shot on a par 3 that could go in, i have been very close, and im dreadful. so dreadful in fact that i missed the ridiculously short birdie putt and settled for par!

Thornton is a lay tonight, been throwing poorly recently very low on confidence. Lots of justified 1.2 shots tonight but this aint one of them.

Co Stompe before match yesterday hit 3 9 darters in practice before the game, this shows how easy it is for pros under no pressure. Nearly all pros have hit 9 darters in practice, though many snooker players have never got close to 147.

With its greater number of variables snooker is a far more complex game than darts, hence my belief a maximum break is significantly harder to achieve than a nine-dart finish in a leg of 501.

This complexity, seen in all forms of cuesports, has led to thousands of coaching manuals attempting to explain these intricacies to beginners. Comparative volumes detailing the finer points of darts are slim in every sense of the word. As both games enjoy similar popularity (darts probably edges it these days) I think this fact is telling.

Another point worth mentioning is the efforts of engineers to replicate the necessary actions in automatons. I'll admit I have not seen a dedicated dart-throwing robot, but shooting a small projectile with pinpoint accuracy would not trouble a first year student. We've all witnessed similar devices in action.

What I have seen is the efforts of America's finest minds in the pursuit of a pool-playing machine and, believe me, it will never achieve an eight-ball clearance on a pool table let alone a 147 maximum on an English billiard table.
