English term or phrase: half butt
si tratta sempre di un videogioco di snooker (quindi terminologia simile al biliardo). "half butt" è un tipo di appoggio. Su un dizionari visuale ho trovato che
standard rest = ponte
spider rest = strega

ma half butt?


Tra l'altro in rete non ho trovato glossari bilingui (eng-ita) di biliardo o snooker, e la scadenza è domattina alle nove :-(

Ecco la frase:
The use of a rest, spider, half butt and even non-standard hand bridges is an important element of snooker.

ciao e grazie

É una stecchina...da vero, poi
