One Pocket Pool
PREVENT YOUR OPPONENT FROM SCORING
While it might be tougher to run balls inOne Pocketthan in other games, fortunately it is also easier to play safe its that only one pocket thing! As your game develops, you will discover many different ways to play safe inOne Pocket, and eventually you will need them all. Sometimes all you can hope for in a safety is to survive for another inning just by keeping your opponent from running out, and you might even have to sacrifice something just to do that.
At other times, you might play a safety that puts your opponent in danger of a total sell out. That kind of safety would be considered a trap, and some traps can turn the playing of a safety into an aggressive act indeed.
Of course, even if you play a great trapping safety, your opponent might just pull off a great escape, or even turn the tables on you!
