2020 - Position 152
Updated: Aug 24
Match Play. Red leads 2-0 to 5. How should Red play 52?
At this score hitting would be a catastrophic error, resulting in White doubling from the bar. Even for money the hit would be an error. Red’s prime asset is his anchor and he must keep it while he develops the rest of his position
The choice is between 13/11, 8/3 or the super-safe 13/8, 5/3.
XG has a slight preference for the completely safe play but 13/11, 8/3 is perfectly OK.
