Money play. How should Red play 52?


Because of the strength of White’s prime Red should play this position as a prime versus prime rather than a blitz.

That means that 24/22, 6/1* is the wrong approach and that play is actually a blunder. Correct is 24/17, escaping a checker and maintaining the duplication of one and twos. In fact, all moves other than 24/17 are blunders.
