2021 - Position 161

Unlimited Games. How should Red play 64?
Take the asset with 13/7*, 11/7, or gain in the race, but with lots of return shots, with 20/10*?
It turns out not to be close at all. The long-term asset outweighs the hit by a considerable margin, so much so that, perhaps surprisingly the hit is a blunder.
Red’s game plan is a mixture of attack and prime and 13/7*, 11/7 leaves his options open while acquiring a solid three-point prime. Taking the bar-point also give White some awkward entering numbers such as 61, 62 and 52.
An instructive position.
