When is this useful? Watch this next link - The no point hole technique could have resulted in a different outcome.

*note* First of many tutorials. Let me know if your interested in helping. FYI - This might not be the only way to no point hole, but it has been tested with success. Thanks,

5s is way more than enough for the game to consider it a suicide

Very nice video tutorial.

If you're looking for another interesting clip, go through the Ladle 33 finals recording. It's the last round of the 2nd round match, and TX has 98 points. It comes down to 1 TX vs. 5 VAT, and VAT does a no point hole to take the zone. A regular hole probably could've been used—VAT has enough players to quickly take the zone before the match winner was decided—but it's still a good application of this technique.

Was it 1v5? I thought it was 2v5. I remember this all too well, and i got so mad because it was before I had learned about the no point hole. I'm pretty sure our whole team was judging by the reactions.
