Money Play. How should Red play 41?


Red needs to get his checkers working and that stack on the 6-pt must be developed.


Owning the cube means Red is in the game until the end and he should try to have multiple game plan strategies. The best play is b/21, 6/5, aiming for a back game or a fast-developing forward position.


Bar/21, 22/21 is far too passive and makes White’s game easy to play. That play is a bad error. Bar/21, 4/3 is the second-best play. It wins fewer games but also loses fewer gammons than bar/21, 6/5.
