2021 - Position 179

Updated: Oct 28, 2021


Match Play. 4-4 to 7. How should Red play 33?

The play to avoid here is 7/1(2)*. That leaves the rear checkers stranded with White favourite to enter next roll.

Red should play either 20/14(2) or 20/17(2) 13/10(2). There is no equity difference between the two plays. The key here is to maintain connectivity. Also, if White fails to escape his rear checker, then a blitz becomes more of a possibility on subsequent rolls.
