Match Play. Red leads 6-5 (Crawford). How should Red play 42?


This is not the time to put a checker out of play with 8/2.


Because he owns White’s bar-point Red should be able to easily recirculate any hit checker. Therefore, he should keep all his checkers in play by moving 17/11. Any move other than 17/11 is a blunder.


The moral of the story is to avoid killing checkers unnecessarily.
