When watching a match of snooker, especially one where safety battles take place, the broadcaster will often display a "Safety Success" statistic for both players above the current score, or via a "summary" infographic. For example:
I imagine that, similar to Pot Success and Long Pot Success, Safety Success will use the total amount of the safety shots attempted by the player, and use this to divide against the number of successful attempts - but what makes a safety shot "successful" in this context?
- Snookering the opponent?
- Getting the ball within X distance of the baulk cushion?
- Not leaving a on ball potable?
- A combination of these?
