2020 - Position 227

Updated: Dec 17, 2020


Money Play. How should Red play 42?

The bots have taught us to proceed quietly in such positions.

13/7* is a double blunder. The only move that is not a blunder is the correct one, 11/7*/5. Red will have fourteen checkers in the attack zone and can quietly progress towards a very strong redouble. Leaving White six immediate shots with 13/7* that could potentially win a gammon is very wrong.

Owning the cube is very powerful asset and here Red needs to prepare to use it wisely.
