I guess there would have to be a maximum number of snookers required. There's nothing wrong with the rule as it stands because the players don't take the p!ss with it but ronnie carrying on when he needs 6+ snookers is detrimental to the game.

Boils down to player behavior and peer pressure.
Ronnie will likely believe that he has no peers in the game, thus is free to do as he chooses, and this he has routinely done over the years.

Who can ever forget the robot interview. Crazy

Judd played a poor safety that last frame giving Ronnie an easy opening red and letting him back in it..he was out with the washing,not at the races,toast

he still ain't the sharpest tool in the box,Judd..had he gone 6-2 up as he should've,the Rocket would've struggled to get to 4 frames

still can't see Judd not winning and he may still trot up but can't afford those mental errors
Report Angoose November 22, 2020 5:41 PM GMT
Given Ronnie's approach to conceding this week, I just thought I'd check what is contained within the rule book.

SECTION 4

2. Conceding

(a)  A player may offer a concession, but this becomes null and void if their opponent chooses to play on.

(b)  A player shall not concede a frame in any game, or match unless any player requires penalty points. Any breach of this Rule shall be regarded as Unsporting  Conduct by the player concerned. If the referee has  already Warned the player under Rule 1(a) above, the next frame shall be awarded to their opponent.

(c)  When aggregate scores determine the winner of a game or match and a frame is conceded, the opponent shall receive the equivalent of the value of any balls remaining on the table, where Reds shall count as eight points each and any colour incorrectly off the table shall be counted as if spotted.

So nothing in the rules that specifically addresses when a player is expected to concede a frame, it would require the referee to deem carrying on when requiring a truck load of snookers as unsporting conduct and that would open up a huge can of worms.

The rules, understandably, are more concerned about preventing concessions than encouraging them.
So, we just need Jimmy White to have a word and tell him, "hoy Ronnie, stop being a prat, there's a good lad".

Evening Chaps.

One of the comms earlier in the week told a story about a league player who would NEVER concede.  The frame would continue until the last ball was potted.

Both Ronnie and Cabby are guilty of bringing the game into disrepute, IMHO, and if the rules need changing, then so be it.

if he finishes each frame potting some balls, he's never frozen out and thus never loses his flow?

That was the rationalization he provided last night, explaining that he was potting balls rather than attempting to extend the frame.
However, that was not the case on the majority of the occasions during the week where he routinely played on, attempting to set snookers whilst requiring multiple successes.
