2021 - Position 123
Updated: Jul 26, 2021
Match Play. Red trails 0-4 to 5 (Crawford). How should Red play 44?
The key here is to keep the pressure on White’s blot on his 2-pt and in general to keep pressure on all quadrants.
Therefore 24/20 is not part of the solution. 20/16 is part of the solution. The question then is what to with the other three fours. It is very close between 13/9, 13/5 and 13/9(2), 6/2. The equity difference is tiny so take your pick.
The over the board play of 24/20, 13/9(2) 6/2 was a bad error as it takes the pressure off White.
