2020 - Position 217

Money Play. How should Red play 65?
10/4, 8/3 and 13/7, 6/1* are both serious contenders and neither is an error. However, 13/2 is an error and nearly a blunder as it puts no pressure on White.
The key is White’s home board with those two blots. 13/8, 13/7 clears Red’s most difficult point and the duplications of twos and sixes is very meaningful. That play wins 55% of the time and that is the best that Red can do from this position. It also wins a slightly higher percentage of gammons.
