Understood. But my real basic point is that any sport, or any human endeavor really, seems strategyless (or "boring") to folks who don't know a whole lot about the endeavor. The more you know, the more there is to be seen, and the more interesting the subject becomes. The idea puzzles my students sometimes, who wonder why I'd want to go aroun dissecting poems, say, which they'd just as soon "enjoy" without the analysis. I tell them the same thing--the more you know, the more there is to be known, and so the more enjoyment there is in engaging with the subject.<br><br>
