Choosing. Not anticipating. Otherwise you are their puppet and they will pull your strings.
The attacker sees good and bad options. You've really given them bad and terrible options. They choose what looks like their best option, but it isn't quite good enough, you've got them. If they choose the terrible option, you thump them. They should have known better.
This is my way of Mario Kart, and Aikido.
