2020 - Position 95

Money Play. How should Red play 63?


The key idea here is to make the bar-pt and 5-pt and to destroy White’s timing for his 1-2 back game.

13/7, 10/7 turns out to be the second-best play according to XG but I would be very happy with that play.

The rollouts have 21/18, 13/7 as best but making the bar is not an error and 21/15, 18/15 is also fine. This is the sort of position where XG3 may be more accurate – we will have to wait and see!
