2021 - Position 182

Updated: Nov 2, 2021


Money Play. How should Red play 54?

Red is behind in the race so doesn’t want to race. That eliminates bar/16.

With two rear checkers Red wants to connect them to create an anchor.

The best play is bar/20, 6/2*. This takes away half of White’s roll and should the blot on the 2-pt be hit that may well help in the creation of an anchor.

Taking that tempo from White is important. Bar/21, 13/8 would be a blunder because it is too passive.
