2021 - Position 153
Updated: Sep 15, 2021
Match Play. Red leads 4-0 to 7. How should Red play 22?
The pure play is bar/23, 13/11(2), 8/6 but being hit on his 5-pt may cost Red his racing lead and White’s home board is as strong as Red’s.
Leading in the match and with the cube already on 2 indicates a level of caution should be applied.
The correct move here is bar/23, 13/11(2), 5/3. For once discretion is the better part of valour. Everything else is a blunder.
