One key point is that your partner need to set you up for the poach. That means his serve and groundstrokes need to limit your opponent's return options, so the return becomes predictable.
In the current form, that's not poaching, those are emergency shots.
If your partner has a weak serve or groundstrokes, you might be better off playing 2 down instead of 1 up 1 down.
