Match Play. Red leads 6-0 (Crawford). How should Red play 66?

Two plays here have identical equity. 13/7(3), 10/4 and 22/16(2), 13/7, 10/4.

The latter at least partially solves the problem of the rear checkers while the former build a solid five-point prime. It turns out that both game plans are viable, and you can take your choice.

Over the board 22/16(2), 10/4, 8/2 was played but that is overly cautious given the state of White’s home board.
