Here' how the pros signal. Read carefully. The net-man holding his hand behind his back either has an open hand (poach) or closed hand (stay). The server looks at the signal, says yes or no. Then serves. Sometimes the pros even discuss what they will do between points by whispering their plan to poach, fake or stay. Very complicated I know. Let me know if I need to repeat it.
With all the lessons you've paid for no pro has every taught you poaching signals? If your answer is no, I'd sue for my money back.
Oh, dear. I wasn't clear.
*I* know how to poach and how to signal. My partner, bless his adorable little heart, had no clue.
Social matches should be Squabble-Free Zones, so I just did what he wanted.
