Unlimited Games. How should Red play 11?


“Four is more than you think”, to quote Kent Golding. You can make a case for shuffling Red’s checker around his bar point in many different ways but bar/24, 9/8, 6/4 is the strongest move here, despite leaving a direct shot.

Everything else is at least an error. This is an excellent learning problem. Most students don’t slot the 4-pt but now you know to follow the wise words of Mr. Goulding.
