Hi XFatOx,

If you simply wait, in scenario #2, you buy the stock at the market price and there is no immediate loss. Plus, you have the flexibility/option to say, "Hey, I changed my mind".

But you an always buy back the contract. You can change your mind by just buying back the sold put to close the contract.
