Hitting twice seemed natural to me, but at some point in a blot-hitting
contest, it may be better to consolidate your advantage than to risk
losing it by continuing to hit. Here, I think I underestimated the
value of buttoning up on the 16pt (see variant for comparison).

The difference in plays isn't nearly as much as your rollout indicates. Variance really at work.
