The first early-game exception that comes to mind is something like 54S-41. Of course you hit 6/5* with the 1, but I see a lot of players continuing with 6/5*/1*. Along similar lines, I will often see 52S-52 played as 8/3*/1*. Perhaps somewhat paradoxically, players from the pre-bot era are less likely to make this kind of error.

I'm not sure that qualifies as an exception to what I wrote. I meant when given the choice between making an important point or hitting on the opponent's side of the board.

Ex: 51slot 31? or 64s 53? etc. It extends to much more than just second rolls though.

Double-hitting is another animal altogether.
