One point does make a difference!
I want to hold an opponent to 44 instead of 45; I’ll go into the seven to keep him off of 45. I don’t want the opponent at 61 from the head or 68 if I can make him chase a seven and only get to 67. If you think about it there are a lot of places where one point does make a difference and that one point may be gained at 29 instead of 30. Many players start counting to late in the game.
If you need one block you have no business being in the middle of the board on the opponents hammer. Use a St Pete, a little wide and high enough that you can see the whole side behind the hide. It the opponent shoots it for the kitchen and goes long, shoot the next one through, you know what he is going to try to do, don’t let him.
