I've tried to do those same things they do during the match.

Like play a standard break shot, but when it backfires, the consequences are awful.

Its the things like watching their patterns and when to play safe, not just shots.
Some of the old time guys never ran more than a rack but would never leave the
opponent a shot. You will pick things up that you can duplicate by watching these guys.

I agree with you the pros play a standard in tournaments.

To replicate that at below the pro level, doesn't seem possible. Without the same talent and skill it costs me more to try to play like that. If I go for their patterns I might mess up so badly I give up the table and leave a 8 ball run.

At a less than pro level, what makes sense to me is pocket the few I have a high percentage on, then go for a safe. From watching the pros, taking a chance on a shot for shape, is something I have a higher chance of screwing up.
