We have all seen the contest where a person is in a bank vault and has 360 seconds to grab as much money as possible. If it were you, would you stop grabbing money after you had "just enough" in your hands? Would you stop grabbing money when there were only 60 seconds left? Would you ever be too tired to keep grabbing more money? Obviously not. Why? Because the reward of what that money can do for you overrides any of the reasons to stop. A wrestling match is the same type of contest. You need to have the same kind of mindset.
Choosing to create advantaged positions and avoid disadvantaged positions is the most underutilized strategic asset in wrestling. The wrestler who wrestles in his highest advantage position, for the longest time in the match, will have the greater probability of winning. That is the reason why two wrestlers wrestle multiple times with drastically different outcomes, and why the logic doesn't hold that if one wrestler beat another he should be able to beat the wrestler his prior opponent beat.
