    Thank you for this. There are tons of break building routines out there but very few interesting routines for safety and long potting. I would be interested to more fun safety routines.

    I do something similar to this, but I pop the Blue and Baulk colours on their spots.

    Thanks! That sounds like a good routine. I'll certainly give this a try.

    That is a great routine . I will try to follow the routine myself.

    I play billiards and that tells me all the natural angles for the drop cannon to the red on the black spot and how to bring the other cue ball close to it when playing from the D.
    Also the long in off from the D can bring the other cue ball close to the red on the black spot or bring the contacted ball back over the middle pocket for another in off to try for top of the table position, ie all three balls close to the black spot for alternate cannon/pot break building.

    All this is very useful for your snooker safety game but this routine from Steve has great merit, but like pottr I would have the colours on their spots as you need to learn to avoid them.
    Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
    but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

    Yes good point about the baulk colours. I think once you get better at the routine in the video, it's a very good idea to put the colours on their spots also.
