Money play. How should Red play 44?

Over the board 9/1*, 7/3(2) was played without much thought but that was a double blunder because if White rolls an ace he will be a threat and Red still has to move his rear checkers

Red need to do something about his rear checkers now.

21/13(2) is the obvious play but better is 21/17, 21/9. At the cost of a not too dangerous ace shot Red establishes an excellent broken prime so White will need a 2 and then a five to escape.

21/13(2) is an error (just). 21/17, 21/9 wins the day.
