Money Play. How should Red play 61?


Red must accept that White has a well-timed back game. He could try 8/1* to prevent a 1-2 back game but that will delay Red further and improve his timing. Red would rather be hit himself to slow him down.

The only move that is not an error is 16/10, 11/10. That move blocks White sixes from the 4-pt which may at some point force White off his 2-pt. If Red can build a prime from his 11-pt to his 5-pt that may yet serve to help White crash his home board.

Of course, nothing is certain in such a complex position but overall 16/10, 11/10 gives Red his best winning chances.
