And with JVR coming across the net like that the variables are always larger. Its all a matter of creativity, quick reaction and a little luck.

Sometimes you get the bear. Sometimes the bear gets you.
It was almost so easy that it worked in a sense.

9/10 guys try to go five hole in that situation. JVR put it where it almost always get stopped... worked out nicely, Boucher closed up like he was going five hole and gave JVR the whole right side.
