That's it right there. You must know the ability of your opponent. A good safety against an SL-3 will burn you against an SL-6.

I'd agree...you should be practicing the bank shots to get to 80% instead of these poorly played safeties!

Maybe try to bank for a 2-way shot instead...at least you have an XX% chance of winning instead of 0%!

Maybe ok for a good player against a low level player or two low level players but a low level player against a good player might as well try for the pocket as his odds of success of pulling off a safety is probably about the same.
