You are in a tournament up against your bosses. Whilst you had been practising hard all year round, you had not seen your boss in action in a tournament, so its a big question of his playing ability and of course, he had never seen you play before.

And you have 2 options:
- Play to the max. You give your 100% at every single bloody shot and run the risk of possibly outshining your boss.
- Play like you're playing mahjong with your mother-in-law... That is, you play your worst game ever by topping 8 balls out of 10.

Which one would you choose?

depend on your boss character. If he loves to be challenged to the max, play 100%. If he is alousy boss and only wants to win, no choice u have to play a diplomatic game

Just play your game and most importantly enjoy it. I don't see a point in putting up a show just to please your boss but of course, it largely depends on your work performances and your relationship with him/her.

Just play your game. Only the following outcomes:

1. You win, and your boss loves you for it. He's a sporting man and he respects you for your ability. What an awesome boss! Someone you really want to work for as he recognizes your abilities and gives you credit where credit is due.

2. You win, but your boss hates you and makes snide comments. What a dick. Such a sore loser. If he makes your life a living hell because you beat him on the course, you wouldn't want to work for a twat like that anyway.

3. You lose, and your boss is supportive. Encourages you to practice etc. See #1.

4. You lose, and your boss is a dick as he ridicules you to no end. See #2.
