You would end up making lots of errors, overhits, he would still get the job done but would walk out frustrated because thats not what he has been training for over the last year and a half, it would have nothing to do with pressure at that point .
I know he's home coached, but sounds like DB could benefit from at least some hits with Harold Solomon. He has helped some pro players and might help broaden DB's capabilities. He made a ton of money frustrating his opponents.

He dropped out of college (Rice U.), by the way.
