    If I feel I need the hook I'm in pass mode.

    I buy the hook based on value. If I can buy the 1/2 point or a whole point and still get value then I am good. If the line Is -105 and you can get 1 point for 125 then I am in. I try to keep my line below -120 but sometimes go over in certain situations. I buy the hook about 10% and I believe itís saved my ass and well worth the investment. Nothing worse than losing by 1/2 a point cause you were to cheap to buy some insurance. IMO

    I'll do it on occasion if it's a big bet.

    I will only buy to get to a good number, won't buy off it.
