Money Play. How should Red play 42?


This is another positional type where bot rollouts have clearly established the correct strategy.

Giving up the mid-point for a hit when you are outboarded is the wrong concept.


Red needs to look at this as a potential prime-versus-prime game. The correct move is 8/4, 6/4, creating a broken five-point prime, with the idea of trying to subsequently make the 5-pt though of course the dice may argue with that idea.
