I've been analyzing the way that I used to think about the game and my setting up of certain shots. I used to scream at the players on TV if they didn't do something the way that I felt that they should do it. Most players perception is that you should be setting up your shots when sub-300 but this to me is completely wrong. Assuming I don't hit above 100 with my first throw, my setting up starts immediately after the first throw - I want to leave myself a 6 darter at almost any cost. This is where I'm now stuck in two minds as to my approach. Lets say I have 420 left after first throw, then hit S20. My approach used to be very dogmatic, I would aim for the Bull and if I only hit S25 then I would go for another bull to either leave 325 or 350. My approach was purely theoretical, I never really got to try it in league games because it was all 301. The more I think about it although I know it is mathematically the right thing to do I also think about the implications of costing myself a potential 20 points. Whenever I have raised the point before people say "well if you aren't good enough to hit T20 why go for the bull?" A rather ignorant viewpoint - I feel that anyone at any time could hit a 180! It is good practice not to underestimate anybody whatsoever. The likelyhood of hitting a 180 followed by 170 is remote even for professionals but why leave anything to chance? Shouldn't we also treat all opponents the same way? How far do you go to ensure you maximise your opportunities? It seems like the professionals don't go far enough. When you see them leave 339, 342/3/5/6/8/9 etc. Is it the right to do from an etiquette standpoint?
