Money Play. How should Red play 11?
There are a huge number of possible plays. The key is to maintain flexibility in order to hit any escaping checkers and to make the bar-point if only temporarily.
It would be an error to play 8/7(2) with two of the aces. Red needs to keep White’s sixes blocked and also if White rolls 51 Red wants that checker to get stuck on his bar-point. The top three plays are 15/11; 15/14, 15/12 and 15/14, 13/10 with nothing much to choose between them.
