2020 - Position 92

Updated: May 22


Match Play. Double Match Point. How should Red play 53?

When ahead in the race, race! Playing 21/13 leaves the remaining rear checker subject to attack but everything else is much worse.

6/3, 6/1 leaves Red with three stripped outside points and the warning bells should be flashing. White has 10 checkers in the zone, but a hit still leaves Red with plenty of scope.

White is the favourite in this position whatever Red plays but 21/13 optimises his winning chances.
