2020 - Position 180

Updated: Oct 5, 2020


Match Play. Red leads 4-2 to 5. How should Red play 43?

Red has started badly in this game. Even so, you must play what the dice gods give you.

Both 24/21, 13/9 and 13/6 are too passive although not huge errors. 13/9, 8/5* creates three blots so the remaining alternative is 8/5*/1* which is the strongest play in the position. Red is not well placed to execute a blitz and so the play is more of diversionary tactic to keep White busy while Red does something about getting his rear checkers moving.
