It heavily depends on the position. As you said, you have to prioritize and analyze the scenarios.
- Is there any real chance my opponent will take if I double now? If so, I don't need to sweat the tg decision if it's close, cube and pray he takes.
- If I play on do I know how to play it out? An easy way to get a feel for this is mentally scrolling through all the immediate rolls. If you feel uncomfortable on too many of them perhaps you would be better cashing.
- Is your opponent the type of player who knows you will have been playing on and if the game turns around he'll be relieved to drop a cube that may have turned into a (big) take? This is why I generally like playing on. People realize how bad their position is and rut themselves in the mindset of trying to escape for one point. Things turn their way and they're all too happy to pass and give you your one point. They escaped!
- You play on and things go right. This is allowed to happen. Don't forget it.
There's probably more such as you know your opponent won't take, you think it's a close decision and he may even be good enough to take should the game turn around but in the long run of the game you're still likely to outplay him PR wise so playing on is still no real hit.
