Potting the White
When no reasonably likely score is on it is the game to
pot the white when by so doing a double baulk or subsequent
score can be made and these scores may be a pot or
in-off, either from play or after following the white into a
pocket from hand.
Sometimes it is also good policy to gently pot the white
when it is on the verge of a pocket instead of making a
cannon which would lose the white and imperil the next
score. A good game is sometimes also left with the red
by gently potting the white with the intervening red and
then going in off the red and bringing it into play.
