Safety Toolbox (Advanced)

This is today's bit of advice from the book Safety Toolbox.

These are examples of hidden ball safeties for 8 Ball and 9 Ball. Practice controlled ball movement and patterns. As you get more familiar with the concept, it will be easier to quickly identify opportunities to make life difficult for your opponent.
