Money Play. How should Red play 62?


It would seem that 8/2*, 4/2 is clear but much better is 24/22, 10/4. That four-point prime with four checkers trapped behind it is very powerful.

Even if White makes Red’s 2-pt he doesn’t have the timing for a 1-2 back game and his forward position will crash. Making the 4-pt takes away some of White’s jokers and even 22 is not really a problem.

Any move other than 24/22, 10/4 is an error.
