2020 - Position 226

Updated: Dec 16, 2020


Match Play. Red trails 1-3 to 5. How should Red play 53?

The trick here is to avoid the safe 12/7, 5/2.

The gammon will be close so an extra crossover might make all the difference. Given White’s board, leaving a 17-1 shot in exchange for a crossover looks to be a good deal.

12/9, 7/2 is slightly better than 12/4 because Red gets a shot on White’s 61 and 62.
