Opponent has a floater at the net.

Lower level player stays in the middle,

hoping to have a chance at still winning every point by reacting,

and not accepting deliberate loss of point by picking the wrong side.

Let's agree that he wins 0% of these points.

Statistical minded player picks a side, hoping to guess 50% and have a real chance

Let's agree that he wins some of the points when he correctly guesses the side.

Picking a side has a better expected value than hoping to react late.

I believe not picking a side is a hallmark of the tactical statistically savvy big picture player.

At what NTRP level do you see players "resign" (accept 50% possibility of 100% chance of losing the point) and pick a side?
