Money Play. How should Red play 43?
If you have read Bill Robertie’s new book, “How to play the Opening in Backgammon” you will play 24/20, 23/20 very quickly. It is an excellent book and I recommend it to all players, irrespective of their skill level. Barclay Cooke would also have played 24/20, 23/20 way back in the 1970s. He loved nothing better than holding his opponent’s 5-pt
Any other move in this position is too ambitious and is a blunder.
