2020 - Position 82

Updated: May 8


Match Play. Double Match Point. How should Red play 42?

It might be tempting to hit with bar/23, 5/1* but trapping your own checker behind a broken prime is a very bad idea.

Red must play bar/21, 13/11 and hope he doesn’t get pointed on. Even that play wins only 34% of the time but it is far better than any other move.
