How many balls can you place on a snooker table?

Post by SquaredCue »

Hello snooker enthusiasts,

This is a fun generic snooker topic for anyone, not directly SnookerQ related. The question to answer is the following:

What is the maximum number of standard snooker balls one can place on a standard snooker table so that all balls are resting on the table bed?

If you feel like thinking out loud, go ahead and post your way of calculation, however, it could be more fun if you post only the final result of your calculation first, letting other members post their number. Later on, we will discuss it and hopefully come to an agreement about the correct answer.

Please don't search the net for the answer.

The official dimensions and ball size can be found in the OFFICIAL RULES OF THE GAMES OF SNOOKER AND ENGLISH BILLIARDS.

GLHF!
