2021 - Position 176

Updated: Oct 25, 2021


Match Play. Red trails 2-4 to 5. How should Red play 44?

At this score gammons don’t count against him so Red should make the best play to win the game.

20/12(2) is a very reasonable try and not an error but even better is the whole enchilada, 20/16, 20/8!!

If White doesn’t roll a 1 or a 2 Red’s numbers will all play well. If White does hit a blot then Red can always fall back on a well-timed ace-point game knowing that White cannot use the cube to win the game.
