How about this.... control whitey so you don't scratch, and don't foul it either.
Even though you don't have to call the pocket, most players don't slop the ball in, and if slop is what they rely on to win games, a good player will distroy them over a set.
Now, in short sets or something like BCAPL league play, yeah, playing only a game or two against an opponent sucks if they get lucky.
Good player isn't destroying anyone if they are hooked every time they get to the table after their opponent chowed it.
