Money Play. How should Red play 44?


My opponent here found the imaginative 16/12, 8/4, 6/2(2) here, hoping to buy time to escape his rear checker by hitting one of White’s loose blots.

That was completely the wrong idea by a long, long way. Giving your opponent the chance to enter, duplicating your own aces and not killing sixes are just some of the problems with the play! That play was a triple blunder.

Any play other than the simple 16/4, 8/4 is at least a double blunder.
