    Okay, I think I understand, if you defer in the first round you will have a choice in the third. I can see the point there. thanks' to all.

    You mean the second period. There's no choice in the first.

    If given the choice, I defer 95% of the time.

    One exception is when the score is tied 0-0.

    Choosing down in the second period gives you the best chance to score the first point and therefore getting the choice of position in the unlikely event that the match comes down to the sudden death ride-out overtime period.

    This strategy was more useful under the old overtime rules when sudden death ride-out overtime was more common.

    Most of the time you see this scenario with heavyweights.

    Random story. My Jr. year in the quarterfinals at the state tournament I was wrestling a monster. The score was tied 0-0 going into the 2nd period. I won the coin toss and chose to defer. I couldn't believe it when the dude chose neutral, I would've kicked him out for sure. I chose down in the third period, scored an escape and won the match by a point.
