Over the board, my opponent hit me and made the ace point.  that's an excellent blitzing play, and the right play if blitzing is the best game plan, but White simply doesn't have enough checkers on his side of the board to continue with an effective blitz even if he doesn't get hit back immediately.  Once you define your game plan, your basic "strategy," it is generally much easier to find the best play.
