#6 - How much do you think about runouts?

Sh!t happens, and runouts, too. How do you deal with them?

First-round runouts are easy to compute. For a 7-point game:

For a 9-point game:

With some extra work, we can also determine 2nd round runout possibilities. It would never take more than 4 points - less, depending on how many points were made in the first round (and if you GET a second chance). Hardly worth it, though, 'cause the high-probability stuff is behind us. You could work it out, but it's kinda like debating about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

So, what use do you make of this info? What outcomes do you look for, or avoid?
