Money Play. How should Red play 62?
When your opponent makes his 2pt early in the game it is rarely correct to split the back checkers as this gives him the option of a blitz attack while priming doesn’t work well for him as he owns both his 2-pt and 8-pt.
The choice here is between 13/5 and 13/11, 13/7. The latter gives a much better distribution of checkers and potential return hits. Therefore, that is the correct move.
