If this is a serious question the serious answer is the shortest distance affords the shooter the smallest window for error. the longer the distance you must cover the more the errors of your throw will be magnified.
Drop a pair of dice from half an inch and see if the "set" holds?
Drop a pair from six inches and what happens?
Drop from six feet up and see what happens?
Whenever I see a self-proclaimed DI shooting from the far end of a table I immediately accept that he is not serious following the DI strategy. That of course doen't mean he isn't going to have the roll of a lifetime, but it does mean he is just not a true student of DI.
So someone who believes in DI, does not believe another DI about his shooting ability from a certain spot on the table... You have to admit it sounds funny..
Im not saying it isn't possible from a spot further out on the table, but the "principles" of DI say to have a controlled throw from the shortest possible distance. Of course you can make up your own rules as you go along. LOL
Lol I understand...
