Money Play. How should Red play 32?

White’s two inner board blots allow Red to play aggressively. Sometimes a single blot can do the work of a point by limiting the opponent’s options.

Here the correct play is 18/15, 3/1 which generates extra shots on some of White’s fives, look at 65 for instance.

Because this tactic is correct you may be surprised to learn that 18/15, 13/11 leaving four blots, is not even quite an error. 13/8 and 18/13 are both double blunders.
