Money Play. How should Red play 62?


This is a complex position, but it turns out that nearly any move is OK! The move to avoid is the one made over the board which was 10/8, 10/4. This creates an ugly stack on the 8-pt an makes White’s 55 much more comfortable.


The top three plays in the rollout are 13/11, 8/4, 8/6, 8/2 and 8/2, 6/4 in that order but they are all very close. Not many would pick 13/11, 8/2 as their top play and back games are not XG’s forte so one of the other plays may well be best!
