More About Asking The Score

I wrote the other day how asking a player their score during a match can sometimes throw them off.

I want to be clear though and point out the obvious:  that players with a strong mental toughness will not be thrown off by your question.

Further, IF they are rattled at all - they will recover from it quickly.  In other words, they may think about it for a bit, but then they will get it out of their mind and get back to the task at hand:  focusing on the table.

Not everyone is distracted with questions.  But no reason to test that, right?
