2020 - Position 53

Money Play. How should Red play 11?

It turns out that there are two valid game plans. The pure priming play with 24/23, 8/7(3) with four White checkers trapped behind a four-point prime; the escape plan 24/23(2), 4/3(2)*, attempting to find time to escape the rear checkers.

The key is to see both plays and understand the game plans. Choosing between them is extremely difficult and you would have to go with your gut instincts over the board. There is only 0.005 between them on the rollout with the priming play just edging it.
