2021 - Position 14
Updated: Jan 22, 2021
Match Play. Red leads 3-0 to 5. How should Red play 31?
With only one rear checker to escape red does not want to leave unnecessary blots lying around. This precludes choosing 13/9*.
For once Falafel’s Law doesn’t work. Making the 5-pt is a triple blunder.
The rear checker does not need to advance – it should escape without much problem.
That just leaves the rather dull 10/9*/6 but for once dull is good. Any other move is either an error or a blunder.
