Money Play. How should Red play 61?


23/16 leaves 23 shots. 23/17, 3/2* leaves 18 shots. The latter risks a second blot but if it is not hit it gets rid of something that could be a long-term problem. On the downside the hitting play will lose more gammons.

In addition, White fans with four rolls which is a huge swing.

The advantages of 23/17, 2/1* outweigh the disadvantages by a small margin and XG classifies 23/16 as an error but only just.
