Why would one EVER use effort in a defense roll?

Do to the use of the pool system and effort, one my my players pointed out the other day when I asked if he wanted to use effort to avoid an attack, and he said that was silly, mathematically.

When I though about it, I realized he was right.  Why would I spend points from a pool to avoid losing points from the pool, especially considering that even using a little more effort might result in a larger drop to the pool that the weapon would cause.
