Money Play. How should play 66?


This position occurred in a chouette at the Cyprus tournament last year. I was the captain.


We had a long debate between 23/17(2), 23/11 and 23/17(2), 9/3(2)*. In the ned we couldn’t agree so as captain I made my move, 23/17(2), 23/11. When the box didn’t roll a four, we redoubled him out next turn.


Was I correct? Not quite. The better move is 23/17(2), 9/3(2)*. The point is that if we make that move and White fans we can play on for a gammon! That thought didn’t even enter our five-minute discussion. We were so focussed on winning the game after our joker roll, we didn’t even consider gammons. Did you?


Tricky game, backgammon!
