Match Play. 8-8 to 13. How should Red play 42?


Leo’s comment sums this up perfectly so over to him:


12/6. Although this leaves more immediate shots (11 as opposed to 6 when breaking the 5-pt), if missed there won't be much lingering jeopardy. In addition, it saves the additional wastage that breaking the 5-pt creates which will make a difference when bearing off.
