    I don't have the patience to win a frame by timing out my opponent, I hate sitting waiting in the tournaments for players to finish, I try it win as fast as possible. :D

    Likewise.

    But surely that contradicts what your saying. If you win fast it is likely you will be waiting for your next opponent to finish. Whereas if you win slowly then you won’t have any time to wait.

    I see no contradiction. By winning as quickly as I can, I control the game. But when I'm against a player that doesn't trust his/her own skill enough to pot the balls to win and simply plays hide and seek, it's not easy to get that control over the game. Yeah ... that causes me to wait sometimes for the next opponent in tournament play ... sometimes it doesn't. I don't have a problem with that.

    The contradiction is what you agreed with..... Something I don’t agree with which you have said is that someone who plays hide and seek has no skill. It sounds like it’s you that can’t cope with someone who has a good safety game. If you’d like to prove me wrong then let’s play a few games?
