Match Play. 0-0 to 7. How should Red play 61?
Most commenters got this right. It is much too early to hit because Red is not ready to contain a hit blot. He has perfect timing for a back game and should keep it. The 2-3 back game is the best of all and more shots will be coming.
Correct is 13/7, 6/5. This is better than 15/9, 6/5 because it makes a solid four-point prime immediately. Hitting now is bad error. Interestingly the rollout shows that 15/9, 6/5 is also quite an error.
