2020 - Position 127
Updated: Jul 17
Match Play. Red leads 1-0 to 7. How should Red play 11?
Red will need to hit a shot to win the game. Therefore, he needs to maximise his chance of hitting a shot.
To do that he must split his checkers on the 12-pt to create the possibility of a triple shot on White’s 63, 53 and 43.
There is little to choose between 12/11, 6/5, 6/4 or 12/11, 4/1 or 12/11, 5/4, 5/3.
The key to the problem is splitting to the 11-pt from the 12-pt
Nearly all other plays are blunders.
