Mark safe

A player who plays after a valid opening can play a safe shot with the purpose of bringing the cue ball to a better position for the following balls.

In a safe shot, the cue ball does not necessarily have to hit the target ball or the ice touches, but the offending rules still apply.

The player must declare before deciding that he has made a safe decision, otherwise the stroke is considered a normal stroke.

Target balls that are pocketed in a safe shot will not count and will not be returned except ball 9.

After the safety of the previous player, the next player may start his turn with the position of the cue ball left by the previous player or may request the player who has just played it safely.

A safe shot is not considered illegal. After an invalid starting stroke, the next player has the right to start his turn with the cue ball in his hand, whatever position is on the table. After an invalid opening stroke the next player cannot play safely.
