LEARN TO PLAY THE SCORE
The basic idea of playing the score is to adjust your strategy depending on the score, to give yourself the best chance to win. Typically, this is done by playing more conservatively and sending balls out of play to protect a lead, or by playing more aggressively and keeping the balls in play when you you are way behind. Playing the score is all about managing the odds of winning. If you need just one or two balls and your opponent needs significantly more, generally your odds improve the less balls are in play, and their odds improve the more balls are in play because of the possibility of stringing together a run with multiple balls in play!
