Figure 2 Represents The Best Of Billiards Pool

In the position of Figure 2, you have kept your one safety shot in billiards pool unused until now, near the end of the game. Per Rule 3 call aloud the 7-ball in the right corner pocket and a safety also!

Make the shot and win the game—but if you miss the 7-ball, your opponent accepts the incoming position without ball-in-hand. I've taught this game many times and beginners always forget somewhere to call the safe on the last 7-ball and lose, when I should have been attempting a difficult return shot without the free ball-in-hand.
