Large senior is probably the toughest division to strategize for. There are years when it really pays to be clean and (relatively) easier. There are also years where that plan gets you 5th and looking too conservative. That division probably has the highest percentage of times that the highest raw score DIDN'T win. There have been years when 4th or 5th highest raw score won. (I know that isn't the fairest way to judge difficulty, but it is a good stand in.) The division is so deep that you have to take some chances - either by upping the difficulty or risking it a different way by NOT having difficulty.
