2021 - Position 188

Updated: Nov 10, 2021


Unlimited Games. How should Red play 31?

This position originally occurred in a match with Red losing 2-5 to 7. At that score the right play is very clear, 8/5, 6/5, because it wins more gammons.

In a money game it is a complete toss-up between 21/18, 9/8 and 8/5, 6/5. The latter wins more gammons, but the former wins more games. The two things balance out to give identical equities.

I would always err on the side of aggression and play 8/5, 6/5 but that is my style.
