'shot to nothing', is often the second shot played in a frame between
Player one breaks off on the yellow side of the 'D' coming off three
cushions to leave the cue ball in or around, area 'X'.
break off often promotes a red into area 'Y' leaving player two
the opportunity of a long pot.
This pot should now be played in such a way that the cue ball is
manoeuvred behind the black, onto the side cushion and back up to
the baulk end of the table.
A pot and safety in one.
The preferred shot in this example (Figure 2) is to either 'clip
off' ball 'Y' back to safety at the baulk end of the table, or to
play the safety shot like the professional break off, using three
cushions by applying right hand side (English) to the cue ball.
A quick glance however reveals that ball 'Y' is potable into the
top left hand pocket. When playing safe off ball 'Y' an attempt
should be made to locate the potting angle and promote the red into
the pocket. The shot is difficult however and equal focus should
be applied to achieving a good white ball.
Should the pot be successful a break can begin or a decent safety
or snooker be played in behind the green, brown or yellow. If it
doesn't go in, the only ball that can be left on is ball 'Y'.
The positive approach to safety pays dividends.
