Many opponents will roll a number of dice and remove either the lowest or highest result. How does this work in combination with an escape from a snooker?

1. Is the lowest/highest die removed before checking for a 5 or 6?

2. Is the lowest/highest die removed after checking for a 5 or 6?

3. No die is removed other than the 5 or 6 to escape the snooker?

The rules make no reference to the possibities of 1 or 2, so I am inclined to assume 3 is correct. Is my assumption correct?

The lowest/highest dice is removed before checking for a 5 or 6

So, using the example card shown in the rules for the Final, Eddie would roll 4 dice and discard the highest. If snookered then one of those 3 dice would need to be a 5 or a 6 for him to escape your snooker.

If he succeeds then the score on the remaining 2 dice represents the total number of balls he pots after getting out of the the snooker.

The initial discarded dice does not come into play at all, even if it is a 5 or 6.

I'll make this clearer in the rules update.
